The objective of the programmatic series is to help reduce gender inequality in Panama, through the effective and timely implementation of policies designed to enhance the physical, economic, and decision-making autonomy of women. This operation is the second in a series of two independent but technically linked single-disbursement operations under the programmatic policy-based loan modality. The objective of this second operation is to reduce gender inequality in Panama, by consolidating the regulatory and institutional framework to foster the physical, economic, and decision-making autonomy of women, and to improve capacity to manage gender policies.
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).
