The TC will have 2 components. The first component will dig into the recent experience of selected cities in the COVID emergency and will reflect on actions taken and lessons learned to provide recommendations for future sanitary crisis. The second component will gather existing knowledge about urban environmental quality and its incidence on health, and will identify the factors that contribute to favorable or unfavorable results (air pollution, building materials, urban design, insecurity, density, connectivity, among others). Within this framework, It will then develop and test tools to promote healthy cities, to be tested in two or three pilot cities.
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).
