The objective of this TC is to continue supporting the cities of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to strengthen the technical and management capacities of local actors in the construction of sustainable and inclusive cities, and to promote the alignment of their agendas to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the context of the Bank's work in the different sectors and with the existing connection of the Network with the cities, these activities are expected to be carried out through: (i) dialogue and cooperation between the mayors of the cities and others actors, such as the private sector, academia or civil society around compliance with the 2030 Agenda; (ii) active exchanges of good practices and dissemination of innovative experiences that have had an impact and can be replicated; (iii) training spaces to strengthen the technical knowledge of the cities in order to find better solutions to the main urban challenges of the region.
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).
