The broad objective of this technical cooperation is to develop the knowledge that IADB and its clients need to develop efficient and effective policies and programs to reduce local pollution and mitigate its effects on human health. The specific objectives are to foster communication and collaboration among research institutions, the IDB and the policy community, and build the knowledge base on which these stakeholders can draw. These specific objectives, in turn, will be accomplished by funding (a) policy-relevant, rigorous research on local pollution and its links to human health by and/or with key LAC research and policy institutions that are expert on this topic, and (b) networking and workshops and other dissemination activities.
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).
