Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism: 2019 Annual Report
2019 has been a very dynamic year in all of MICI’s areas —from the receipt and management of requests, to access promotion and learning generation activities, to engagement with peer mechanisms and addressing such vital issues as managing cases involving the risk of reprisals and the modernization of the safeguards framework. MICI managed 23 complaints during the year, ten of which were received in previous years and 13 newly received in 2019. Twenty out of the total 23 complaints are related to IDB operations and three to IDB Invest operations. The 2019 Annual Report attempts to provide a faithful account of the rigorous, impartial, and transparent work of the entire MICI team to strengthen the environmental and social sustainability of the IDB Group in Latin America and the Caribbean.
