II.2 The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to develop a territorial framework (using spatial econometric methodologies) to characterize the East-Andean Amazon Region (EAAR) in terms of social, economic, demographic, infrastructure, productivity and production, human capital and social services trends; map out the most pressing development challenges the region faces and identify opportunities to sophisticate and add value to current economic activities; and increase the productivity of resources, with the aim of generating a more sustainable and inclusive growth. Particularly, given the importance of the forestry value chain in terms of social and economic opportunities in this territory, this TC will allow a deep dive into its structure, to understand how its impact could be maximized to benefit local population. This TC will also guide public and private investments that leverage natural capital and bioeconomy potential, ensuring the integrity of the Amazon biome. The study will result in the recommendation and territorialization of key intervention alternatives, which will boost the region's resiliency and inclusive productive growth. This TC is aligned with the Second update to the Institutional Strategy (AB-3190-2) in its efforts to address climate change and environmental sustainability, and to preserve and continue to advance development gains (social exclusion and inequality; low productivity and innovation; and limited economic integration) in the region.
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).
