According to the Bank’s website, this project will facilitate the fulfillment of objectives prioritized by sectoral authorities within the framework of the Annual Conference of Mining Ministers of the Americas (CAMMA) through the identification and implementation of effective actions and tools that can be adopted by LAC governments to develop regional value chains around critical minerals for the energy transition and the fulfilment of climate change long-term objectives, including Nationally Determined Commitments (NDCs). In this sense, the project will (i) generate data to analyze the key factors that limit the development of value chains in critical minerals in LAC; (ii) develop a methodology to identify and prioritize critical minerals at the regional level, considering the specific context of each mining country; and (iii) establish a roadmap for the development of these critical minerals and their value chains, considering not only the mining sector's crucial role in decarbonization but also the persistent challenges related to the management of socioenvironmental impacts. This will help to understand and take advantage of the existing opportunities that the links between mining and indicators of sustainable development reveal.

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).
