According to the Bank’s website, the general objective of this technical cooperation is to improve fiscal equity by developing new tools and methodologies which will improve the institutional capacity of ministries of finance to manage equity. The specific objectives are to use empirical evidence to: (i) measure the impact of fiscal equity in various fiscal interventions; (ii) design policies conducive of redistribution through taxation, better spending targeting and prioritization, gender equity, and human capital opportunities; and reduce poverty and informality; and (iii) manage equity transversally through the various levels of government using fiscal tools.

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).
