Since the introduction of telework for all IDB Group employees, field missions have been postponed until the necessary conditions are met, without in any case implying a suspension of the management of ongoing complaints or paralysis of the processes. On the contrary, in the last two months dozens of virtual meetings have been held with the different interlocutors of each complaint, using multiple channels and platforms based on particular situations.
In 2020, MICI presented the results of its first 10 years of work in all the areas of our mandate.
In the framework of the celebration of its tenth anniversary, this 2020, MICI has published three knowledge notes that delve into different aspects of accountability and promotion of sustainable development. With these three new publications, MICI aims not only to present the results of its first ten years of work but also to strengthen knowledge and understanding of all aspects linked to the mandate of the Mechanism.
More than 110 representatives from 23 independent accountability mechanisms (IAMs) of international financial institutions (IFIs) participated in the XVII Annual Meeting of the IAMnet, organized this year by MICI on the occasion of its tenth anniversary celebrations. The Annual Meeting, held for the first time in a totally virtual format due to COVID-19 restrictions, took place over two days, on September 23 and 24.
