The objective of the TC is to create and expand access to improved water and/or sanitation facilities and services among low-income communities with a three-pronged approach by (i) scaling access to WaterCredit by partnering with financial institutions; (ii) providing technical assistance and capacity building to water utilities to provide financial mechanisms to users for expanding water access, and; (iii) promoting the development of blockchain technology into the MFIs systems to better capture cost savings and functionality , to create an economic identity for users , and to digitalize the interaction between users and MFIs.
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).
