Project Description
The main objectives of this Technical Cooperation (TC) are to: i) update the EVAL 2010 in order to incorporate the most recent statistics (2010 to the present), data, figures and values of the system, considering the impact of the new policies, regulations, investment, and infrastructure developed in the management system of solid waste in LAC during the last five years. The purpose is to enhance the information in some specific components, such as recycling; and to incorporate for the first time, additional waste streams in the analysis, such as food, industrial, hazardous, and medical waste; ii) create a public and user friendly on-line platform to disseminate the updated report (in addition to the publication in paper); and iii) propose a methodology for the periodic revision of this evaluation (at least every five years). In addition, the TC will: iv) support the creation of two additional sub-portals for the on-line platform: a) an urban solid waste sector and risk management interactive decision-making resource for planning purposes (clients oriented); and b) an urban solid waste recycling sector value quantification tool in order to carry out preliminary assessments about feasibility of develop recycling activities. The updated report will serve as learning tool for building the institutional capacity of governments.

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).
