The main objective of this project is to promote water security through strengthening transboundary water governance, sustainable development, multiple uses, and integrated management of the Pantanal and the Upper Paraguay River. This will impact the social and economic well-being of the population and conserve the freshwater ecosystem, its services, its biodiversity and connectivity. The specific objectives are: (i) to strengthen a tri-national coordination mechanism; ii) to develop a Transboundary Diagnosis Analysis (TDA) for the Pantanal; iii) to design a participatory Strategic Action Plan (SAP) for this region; iv) to implement demonstrative projects for improved and effective management of the water resources; and v) to disseminate knowledge, and lessons learned in the Pantanal.
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).
