According to the Bank’s website, subnational governments (SNG) share responsibilities with national governments in areas of public policy that are relevant to climate change (CC) mitigation and adaptation. To achieve the commitments established in their NDCs, countries require joint work between their different levels of government. The objective of this TC is to support the incorporation of climate action in fiscal decentralization policies and in subnational fiscal management in LAC countries in the areas of: i) subnational public spending with CC considerations (including resilient and low carbon public investment, sustainable public procurement, and planning and management of CC-related fiscal risks in SNG); ii) subnational taxes and fees with climate impact; iii) transfer systems and transition towards decarbonized economies in SNG; iv) financing for subnational climate action; and v) intergovernmental coordination, multilevel governance, and institutional capacity for climate action. Although the activities proposed in this TC are regional in nature, it is proposed to focus on countries with mature decentralization processes and advances in fiscal policy and CC issues. This will allow for the development of various instruments and methodologies that allow experiences to be contrasted and lessons drawn that are relevant to other LAC countries. The products will be disseminated through specialized exchange initiatives and networks.

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).
