The main objective of this TC is to enhance the synergies and the strategic approach of the IDB Cities Network and the Cities Lab to support our local and national urban counterparts by building capacities around innovation and by promoting innovative approaches that can address common urban challenges. The specific objectives of this TC are to: (i) provide capacity building opportunities and cutting edge knowledge around urban innovations to our urban counterparts; (ii) identify common urban challenges and connect practitioners with existing solutions and best practices; and (iii) support cities in developing pilots to experiment, test and try innovative solutions that, if successful, can be scaled or replicated.
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).
