This technical cooperation (TC) will support the Government of Uruguay in the elaboration of the National Waste Management Plan, which will aim to improve waste management models and create mechanisms to achieve progress in the objectives outlined in the new National Solid Waste Management Law. The operation is consistent with the Update of the Institutional Strategy "Development solutions that accelerate growth and improve lives" (UIS) 2020-2023 (AB-3190-2) and is aligned with the priority areas: (i) Technology and Innovation; by promoting innovation in the design of products that reduce the generation of waste and the impacts derived from it and (ii) strengthen the IDB Group's work with the UIS cross-cutting themes: climate change and environmental sustainability, and institutions and Rule of law.
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).
