The primary objective of this analytical work is to promote a paradigm shift in the LAC region's approach to circular economy in water, and specifically in wastewater through resource recovery. Wastewater-to-resource (WW2R) increases the economic benefits of treatment systems and provides additional benefits that can be captured by the served population (energy, nutrients, bio-solids). This work will promote the prioritization and design of investments in the context of a circular economy in which wastewater is considered as an asset and a resource to be utilized rather than a liability, while promoting at the same time integrated, regional watershed planning. This project will consider basins which are trans-boundary as a plus to be considered as pilot under thescope of work.
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).
