According to the bank, this Technical Cooperation aims to seek potential PPP projects for water sector based on in-depth surveys in Latin and Central America countries and to develop two pilot pre-feasibility studies (One is for water and the other is for sanitation). The potential projects will be basically based on the demand of each country and they should be attractive enough to the private sector as well. It seems difficult to meet the interests of both sector at the same time under the current PPP environment in water sector. The TC also will identify the appropriate condition or environment for successful PPP by comparing experiences of Korea, which rapidly developed infrastructures under the harsh financial circumstance and tried various PPP models and options.
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).
