According to the Bank’s website, the general objective is to support the generation of a 2050 vision for regional energy integration in Mesoamerica, through the expansion of electricity trade, and the promotion of regional electric mobility. Specifically, studies are proposed to support two issues: (i) define a long-term plan for the integration of the Mesoamerican region, through the expansion of the electrical interconnection between the Regional Electric Market (MER) of Central America, Mexico, Belize and Colombia; (ii) the implementation of a corridor of high-speed charging stations.
On the TC Summary, there is also stated that, to achieve the project's objectives, "the region can rely on its abundant, yet unequally distributed, natural resources, first of all hydropower and natural gas".

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).
