The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to develop an external evaluation of the Sustainable Emerging Cities Multidonor Trust Fund (ESC), which financed, since 2011, technical cooperation projects that implemented the Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative (ESCI) methodology. This evaluation will assess the development impacts and results of the operations financed by the Fund, considering aspects, like the fund's relevance and the projects' effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability. The external evaluation will contribute to identify and generate key lessons learned from the eight years of the ESC implementation (2011 2019), as well as recommendations to consider in the implementation of the new Multidonor Trust Fund for the Development of Sustainable Cities in Latin America and the Caribbean (CIT trust fund). The analysis will be developed in ten different cities where projects funded by ESC were implemented, and it will be conducted through desk review complemented with virtual interviews with key stakeholders (e.g. relevant local authorities that participated in the ESCI implementation process, and IDB members that participated in ESC projects).
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).
