According to the Bank’s website, the objective of this technical cooperation, encompassing both research and dissemination, is to foster an integrated and adaptive approach related to the Sargassum problem in the Wider Caribbean. By channeling financial resources into multidisciplinary research, this TC will strive to uncover innovative solutions and insights that will underpin effective mitigation and adaptation strategies. The outcomes of this research are crucial for developing comprehensive policies that will guide strategic oversight and operational execution of measures to counteract the Sargassum surge in the Wider Caribbean. Our approach goes beyond addressing the immediate difficulties presented by Sargassum, extending to fortify our enduring commitment to maintaining the region's ecological equilibrium and bolstering its resilience against analogous environmental challenges in the future.

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).
