The main objective of the project is to offer employment opportunities to families that are part of AR's supply chain, focusing on the most vulnerable sectors of the rural and urban areas of Peru. The approach would be carried out in the fisheries, agricultural techniques and production sectors through a support that allows the improvement in the competitiveness of SMEs through the design of a strategy for each chain as well as for the integrated training and advisory activities for these SMEs in the selected sectors that includes: (i) the design of a digitization strategy to improve food traceability processes; (ii) actions for the inclusion of new health protocols that will have to be imposed post-covid and that strengthen companies in their consolidation in the chain; (iii) diagnoses of the companies detecting critical factors in their role within the supply chain; and (iv) coordinated training, consulting and advisory activities to strengthen companies (business strategy, organization of production, qualification of products and production processes, technological updating) in a particular way in a context of post- covid.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
