According to the Bank’s website, the objective of this project is to explore, identify and establish the needs of a group of cities located in the Amazon region in terms of resilience from a territorial perspective with the objective of creating connections and common learning to stimulate the sustainable development of Amazonian cities. The specific objectives are: (i) identify the main needs and strengths of Amazonian cities and develop a proposal to build a network of cities according to their needs and challenges; (ii) highlight the importance of urban centers in the Amazon as strategic points of human capital, bioeconomy, economic growth and climate change; (iii) make visible the main areas of work in which we can add value to the Amazonian cities, connect them and contribute to the creation of capacities that promote economic development and employment generation.

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).
