The objective of this Technical Cooperation is to deepen the knowledge of private business models that operate in the different dimensions of the transport sector, including public passenger transport (1) and last mile logistics (2), with the aim of recommending public policies and Bank interventions in the sector.
(1) The dimension of the public transport will focus on buses but including a assessment of the intersection with other modes like metro systems and ride hailing services.
(2) "Last mile logistics" is the term used in supply chain management to describe the last leg of a trip that includes the movement of goods from a transportation center to a final destination. The term "Urban logistics" will be used to refer to the expanded concept of last-mile logistics, including the vision of public policy, with the aim of especially managing its link with urban mobility.
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).
