This TC has the general objective to support the knowledge creation, dissemination and implementation of pilot activities that enable biodiversity mainstreaming across the Bank's sectors, and within IDB operations through its member countries at national and subnational levels. These biodiversity-led activities allow the incubation, acceleration and scale of new finance, technology and policy solutions. To achieve this goal, this TC will: (i) develop, design and test methodologies for new financial models that leverage the value of biodiversity and natural capital, along with tools to streamline the application of nature-based solutions; (ii) develop research and knowledge products that identify the opportunities for biodiversity mainstreaming and design the related activities to be integrated into Bank operations or policy planning, and ensure that these are in alignment with the IDB institutional strategy; (iii) upscale capacity building, training and dissemination of technical support across governments to incentivize and implement biodiversity mainstreaming; (iv) evaluate, publish and disseminate results and knowledge obtained from the NCL's interventions through its communication channels and regional policy dialogues across high-level strategic clients and partners.
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).
