Project Description
From the IADB: "The work of the Advisory Services Team (AST) will align with investment projects and priorities of the region, and will mainstream sustainability considerations along clients' value chains using a shared value lens. The objective of this Technical Cooperation is to provide custom-made advisory services specifically to clients in the Caribbean, focusing on strengthening companies' value chain through social and environmental investments that ultimately generate financial or economic benefit for the company. Shared value appraisals will include a comprehensive review and examination of new and existing shared value opportunities in the Caribbean, coupled with a financial analysis of potential social investments if such an analysis should be valuable for decision making purposes. "Through this exercise the IIC will continue to build knowledge around current and future private sector client needs around social impact investment and strong inclusive value chains. The Gender Team at AST will support the activities under this TC by providing guidance on approaches that promote development with a strong focus on gender and diversity issues within eligible companies for this TC through various perspectives, including women leaders and employees within the companies and along their value chains as well as well as women stakeholders in the different local communities. The AST will work in close collaboration with the Investment and Portfolio Teams as well as with SEG and DEV at the IIC, to find opportunities to bring more value to IIC clients. We hope to strengthen operations through cross-collaboration and leverage impact in the region."

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).
