This Technical Cooperation (TC) will support the design and execution of a knowledge agenda to better understand the impacts and consequences of Extractive Industries in Latin America and the Caribbean. The project will answer critical questions for policy counterparts to build effective policy, while producing cutting-edge knowledge to understand the vertical links between communities and the extractive sector, the socioeconomic impacts at the local level, and the nature and development of extractive industries, amid new opportunities and challenges in the region. Analytical work financed by the TC will describe present and future development challenges of the extractive sector across 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).
