The main objective of the Project Specific Grant (PSG) is to support the reduction of carbon emissions and build resilience in the natural resources sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and its associated value chain through: (i) the generation of new knowledge and empirical findings on the types of conditions and factors that are most likely to facilitate emissions reductions through enhanced industry procurement practices; (ii) providing recommendations and guidance to industry (public and private sectors) on the implementation of procurement policies and innovative practices that can support reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and (iii) pilot the implementation of a "Carbon Calculator" tool for industry and government that will demonstrate feasibility and impact of improved procurement practices in the natural resources sector.
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).
