The IDB launched the Migration Special Initiative to establish mechanism with borrowing member countries to support a regional mechanism to harmonize migration policies and institutions to benefit both receiving countries and migrants. To carry out such an endeavor, the Bank would like to expand knowledge, policy dialogue, and capacity building on migration and provide concessional lending to assist mass migration-receiving countries and communities, so that migrants are properly integrated. Furthermore, the magnitude of the regional challenge implies that effective solutions will have to go beyond traditional approaches and this TC will focus on learning from countries such as Korea or Europe countries that have advanced technologies on migration control and managements and implement it to 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).
