The general objective of the program is to strengthen the efficiency, effectiveness, and equity of public policy and fiscal management to address the health and economic crisis caused by COVID-19, through the design and implementation of effective and fiscally responsible policy measures. The specific objectives are: (i) to promote the availability and timely execution of public resources to address the health crisis caused by COVID-19; (ii) strengthen the countercyclical effect of fiscal policy through the temporary introduction of measures to protect the income of vulnerable households and to increase the liquidity of firms during the health and economic crisis; (iii) support the effective and continuous provision of essential goods and services through policy and public management measures; and (iv) promote economic and fiscal recovery in the post pandemic period.
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).
