The objective of this TC is to advance the human rights to water and sanitation agenda, with a focus on decreasing inequalities in access to water and sanitation services in Latin America and the Caribbean to the most vulnerable populations. The work done with funding of the TC RG-T2642 had a focus on elaborating manuals to clarify the HRWS approach to those governments that have endorsed it in their normative and want to advance it as part of their responsibilities towards the new 2030 agenda. With these manuals finalized and with funding from this TC and as a continuation of the work started with the RG-T2642 (which finalizes on 2019), the Bank will provide concrete and guidelines in selected key issues that help advance some of the criteria and principles of the HRWS approach, facilitating its implementation. For doing so, the Bank will develop a mix of case studies and pilots which will result on guidelines for each of the key specific issues selected.
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).
