The objective of this TC is to promote the development of solar floating PV energy in Suriname, by supporting the establishment of a proper strategic, policy and regulatory framework and by preparing a feasibility study for a floating solar PV installation in the Afobaka hydropower dam, making use of the expertise developed by other countries. This TC will benefit from the experiences and lessons learned of the Japanese policy and regulatory framework for solar floating projects, as well as the strategies and technologies used in Japan to adapt the infrastructure to extreme weather events and to integrate the floating solar systems in existing hydroelectric facilities. There will be a particular attention to issues relevant to LAC such as climate resilience and risk mitigation.
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).
