The operation's specific objectives at the provincial level are to: (i) increase provincial revenue, with a focus on the real estate tax; (ii) improve the management and targeting of provincial public expenditure; (iii) strengthen investment management; (iv) finance investment projects in strategic sectors, increasing private sector employment; and (v) provide support in the design of fiscal federalism reforms.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB/ IIC 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).
