The MICI is the independent accountability mechanism of the IDB dedicated to address and investigate allegations by groups of persons or communities that believe have been harmed by Bank-financed projects due to it not complying with its operational policies. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the operations financed by the Bank in Latin America and the Caribbean meet the highest standards of social and environmental sustainability.
The MICI operates in accordance with the Policy approved in December 2014 by the Board of Executive Directors, to whom it reports directly.

Last Monday November 16, in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, MICI carried out the “Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) Workshop: Theory and Practice.” The objective of the event was to get to know MICI, share experiences about cases and strengthen ties with civil society organizations that work to promote social and environmental sustainability in Argentina.
On October 26th, 2015, the MICI Director determined that the Request was not eligible as it does not meet the eligibility criteria established in the MICI Policy. Consequently, the processing of the Request was concluded. For further information, please visit the registry file.
On October 7th, 2015, the MICI Director determined that the Request was not eligible and its processing was concluded.
Bank Management requested of the MICI Director a temporary suspension of the eligibility process for a period of 45 days which is provided for by the MICI Policy, understanding that there is a space and opening to strengthen the project’s execution and increase benefits for the communities. Management indicated that the suspension period would allow time to finalize negotiations between national authorities and the Requesters, make adjustments to the Project’s execution instruments, provide additional information to the Requesters about the Project, and develop mechanisms and timetables for monitoring agreements and progress that has been achieved. Management included an Action Plan and a timetable it would implement during the time period requested. The MICI Director granted the suspension of the eligibility process for a period of 45 days, which ends on December 10, 2015. The Requesters were notified of this decision and also received Management’s response.
