The IDB has proposed Technical Cooperation (TC) to support the Panama's Ministry of public works in carring out planning, investments and management of new roads. The project will provide specific support through the financing of pre-investment studies and ensure the Ministry is prepared to carry out the project. The focus is regional connectivity and rural road construction, with a focus on secondary roads linked to the Pan-American highway in Veraguas and the indigenous Comarca Ngäbe-Buglé. The implementing agency is the Public Works Administration (Ministerio de Obras Públicas).
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).
