Given the context and considering the contribution of SMEs to LAC's economy and the lack of information on this matter in the region, the general objective of this TC is to improve the knowledge of LAC policymakers to design, implement and monitor strategies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions produced by and strengthening climate resilience of SMEs in the region. This will be pursued through the design, application, analysis, and dissemination of the results of a survey on SMEs decarbonization transition readiness.
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).
