According to the IADB, the objective is to provide support to LAC local governments to design innovative urban solutions through targeted knowledge and practical exchange, that will result in specific pilot projects to adapt and test the identified solutions. This objective is aligned with the iterative work of the Cities LAB to achieve a more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable urban development in the region. To this end, the TC will be structured in the following components: (i) exchange of international experiences; (ii) design temporary experiments; (iii) develop policy recommendations; and (iv) dissemination of knowledge. Given the current COVID-19 crisis, activities related to social distancing, citizen participation, reviving the local economy, use of public spaces, use of innovative technologies, and big data analysis, among others, will be prioritized.
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).
