According to the bank, the objective of the BPR is to generate a coherent vision about the role of the lithium industry in terms of the development and regional diversification of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. It aims to raise awareness about the necessary conditions for the lithium industry in Latin America to fulfil its potential in a responsible, inclusive and sustainable manner. The PBR propose, among other things, to generate specialized technical knowledge and exchange of experiences around the production and exploitation of lithium. The project seeks, through a collaborative process, the construction of a common development agenda for the lithium industry.
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).
