Strengthen local emergency response systems, through the installation of a network of Local Observatories for Natural, Humanitarian and Health Disasters. These Observatories will strengthen capacities at the local level in crisis situations, being reliable sources of information, providing action protocols to effectively manage the emergency and take advantage of opportunities during recovery, applying Decision Making Action Protocols (PATD for its Spanish Acronym), today with emphasis in COVID-19 but applicable to future disasters. PADT is understood as the set of city operating protocols, monitoring indicators, response strategies and crisis recovery. The RPG will pilot the installation of Observatories in at least three cities of different characteristics (intermediate, border, and metropolitan) where it will operate using PATD and will seek to generate replication mechanisms through dialogue between cities and the identification of replicating organisms in the other LAC 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).
