Project Description
The objective of this operation and the programmatic series is to make social protection spending for the poor more transparent, equitable, and efficient and to enhance its ability to foster human capital accumulation. This operation is the second in a series of three programmatic policy-based loans (see Related Projects).
Investment Description
  • Inter-American Development Bank (IADB)
This operation is structured as a programmatic policy-based loan. The choice of this instrument is justified for the implementation of medium-term reforms, in a context of increasing delivery capacity (stimulated by the operations within the series as well as parallel investment operations), utilizing in each phase the knowledge acquired previously. The amount of financing for this second operation in the programmatic series will be US$200 million, drawn from the IADB's Ordinary Capital resources.

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).
