the project aims "to continue creating and sustaining a long-term and multi-sector critical mass of national expertise on integration through technical-level training, short-term policy advisory services, and support to project execution and monitoring that will strengthen the capacity of public officials involved in integration and trade issues. The specific objectives are: (i) to increase the understanding of how to operate regional and global integration through highly specialized training of government officials and private sector stakeholders related to the global and regional integration agenda; and (ii) to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences, and create communities of practice on integration through collaborative learning to increase the quality of integration project execution and support integration reforms."
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).
