The RPG consists of a toolkit with tools to develop Contingency Plans that strengthen and optimize national and regional capacities to respond to health emergencies and natural disasters in participating countries and other observer countries. Contingency Plans would be developed under a coordinated, scalable and harmonized border management framework. These will be aligned with international principles, procedures and protocols applicable to these emergency situations. The RPG will allow customs and other border agencies of participating countries (and others in LAC who want to join as observers) to prioritize the entry of critical goods, maintain the flow of foreign trade as the basis of the economy, and safely manage the transit of people. It will also promote the transfer of knowledge between participating countries and others who want to join, during the preparation of the toolkit and the implementation of the Contingency Plans.
The country's counterpart ammount to USD 60,000.
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).
