This project aims to generate updated information and technical inputs regarding economic, social and environmental, inclusive and sustainable development in the Amazon region of Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Suriname. These inputs will inform both country strategies and the design of operations in the region under the Amazon Initiative. The TC will produce relevant knowledge on: a) Identification of barriers and solutions to market access, financial capital, and technical assistance needs for potential beneficiaries with emphasis on indigenous peoples, afro descendants an women, b) Socio-economic characterization of the Amazon region of each country to identify effective investments, in the social sector; and, c) Knowledge dissemination to promote strategies to support sustainable bio-economy, gender equality, and development with identity.
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).
