Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI)


The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is an independent mechanism responsible for evaluating if IDB Invest projects are following the organization’s social and environmental policies and procedures:

  • Individuals and communities can reach out to the MICI at any time without the need to exhaust the other channels.
  • This independent accountability office impartially addresses and investigates environmental and social complaints from individuals or communities that are considered affected by projects financed by IDB Invest.
  • A request will be deemed eligible by the MICI if, among others, the individuals or communities describe the efforts made to address the issues with IDB Invest.

For more information about the MICI, please visit its website.
