According to the Bank’s website, the overall objective is to increase climate ambition in LAC cities, primarily intermediate cities across the region, through the following specific objectives: (i) develop technical inputs to inform climate planning and the design of mitigation and adaptation projects in cities and support the alignment of CSD/HUD operations with the Paris Agreement and accounting for climate and green finance; (ii) generate knowledge sharing opportunities between subnational and national governments to promote climate action in cities, the implementation of NDCs in city-level investment projects, and the mobilization of resources for climate action in cities. (iii) strengthen knowledge management for urban climate action (systematize good practices and lessons learned, conduct training courses, develop inputs to facilitate communication, create opportunities to disseminate knowledge).

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).
