Project Description
Specifically the Technical Cooperation aims to: (i) identify roads to be included in the program as well as pavement type and standard of maintenance required; (ii) develop the institutional framework required for the implementation of the rural maintenance and control tasks. This project is expected to have limited social and environmental effects due to the small magnitude and traditional engineering of the project; no residents will be relocated. The project is classified as category "B".

The budget of the Technical Cooperation is US $ 716,000, of which the Bank finances US $ 400,000 from the Fund for Infrastructure (Infrafund) in non-refundable mode. The remaining resources will be contributed by the government of Uruguay.

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).
