Project Description

The overall objective of the project is to strengthen institutions that implement country systems for environmental and social safeguards in LAC countries by improving the knowledge and skills of the public sector by building the institutional capacity of national and subnational governments. The primary tasks are to (i) conduct assessments related to additional training needs in executing agencies and counterpart agencies implementing country environmental and social safeguard systems, (ii) increase understanding and application of environmental and social safeguards, in alignment with international good-practice standards, through expanded specialized technical training of government officials and consultant service providers through on-line and in-person deliveries; (iii) promote the exchange of knowledge and good-practice experiences through collaborative learning, south-south cooperation, communities of practice, documentation and dissemination; and (iv) advance the use of country systems to ensure environmental and social safeguards are met.

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).
