According to the bank, the operation seeks to support the incorporation of climate change elements in specific projects of the CSD / HUD portfolio and to generate a new pipeline of urban operations through the mobilization of additional resources. This will be done through two strategies: on the one hand, the generation of analytical inputs and information that will be relevant to generate climate action packages for projects that are framed under the areas of action of the proposal; and, on the other hand, the pilot implementation of climate action packages in specific projects. These pilots will serve to identify innovative aspects that may lead to a new pipeline and to the involvement of new actors (including the private sector). The operation proposes to prioritize three types of projects due to the potential for new business in the region and IDB's strategic agenda: housing; neighborhood improvement and natural capital; and heritage.
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).
