The general objective is to strengthen the institutional capacity of public entities by mainstreaming the gender perspective in disaster risk management in Latin American and Caribbean countries. The specific objectives are: (i) to promote and support the integration of the gender perspective in contingent loans of the Contingent Credit Facility for Natural Disaster and Public Health Emergencies (CCF) to increase the institutional capacity of the countries for gender mainstreaming in comprehensive disaster risk management; and (ii) to develop a knowledge agenda focused on gender and natural disasters to promote institutional capacity building with evidence-based interventions.
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).
