According to the bank, the objective of this TC is to increase the institutional capacity of the borrowing member countries of the IDB to promote and implement public policies and transparency tools in the extractive sector. To this end, the TC aims to: i) generate capacities to manage information in the extractive sector in an efficient, effective and transparent manner, both at the national and subnational levels of government; ii) support the knowledge that leads to the implementation of transparency initiatives in selected member countries, particularly the EITI Initiative; and iii) deepen knowledge and disseminate lessons learned and best practices on information management and transparency of the extractive sector in the region. These activities would find all the borrowing countries of the Bank as beneficiaries, with the specific countries that have shown interest: Peru, Colombia and the Dominican Republic.
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).
