Project Description

From the IDB: "The primary research produced through this TC will serve as input for the 2020 edition of the IDB flagship publication DIA: Improving LAC Infrastructure Services: for today and for the future. The main question to answer in the DIA2020 is: When it comes to infrastructure services: How can Latin America and the Caribbean improve today and prepare for the future? To that end, the primary research produced through this TC will deliver major inputs for the three sections of the book: (i) Changing the focus to infrastructure services, and assessing infrastructure services in LAC, (ii) How to improve infrastructure services today: the role of institutions, regulations and policies on the performance of infrastructure services in LAC; and (iii) Preparing for the future: sustainability, innovation and financing dimensions."

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).
