Create an epidemiological surveillance platform for pests and diseases of musaceae (VigiMusa) that will allow, integrate, level and train National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) and Regional Plant Protection Organizations (RPPOs) and the musaceae sectors in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries on work methods and protocols that minimize the risk of quarantine pest incursions. VigiMusa will also integrate other continental phytosanitary protection organizations for the prevention of musaceae diseases both for export and for the local market. VigiMusa will allow the early detection of pathogens, facilitate decision-making and guarantee adequate response levels for the management of eventual outbreaks of pests that endanger the socio-nutritional stability of territories highly dependent on musaceae in LAC. In turn, VigiMusa will be integrated with the Trazar-Agro Platform for the traceability of products and materials that require it.
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).
