This work is part of the work of the IDB Group to promote the inclusion and effective participation of civil society as one of the main axes of development in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Vice Presidency of Countries (VPC / VPC), which leads the IDB’s relationship efforts with Civil Society (CS), has carried out a series of internal reviews in order to understand the strengths and challenges of optimizing the participation of CS in matters related to extractive industries (oil, gas and mining) as well as the relationship of actors (Government, Private Sector, Civil Society).
As a result of this review, the necessity to develop a diagnosis and roadmap that does the following was identified: (i) establishes a conceptual framework and analysis methodology that includes institutional, legal/regulatory and administrative elements; (Ii) propose a stakeholder mapping strategy to identify key counterparts; (Iii) assess relationship dynamics in prototypical cases in selected countries based on common and comparable indicators; And (iv) recommend policies and practices for improving the quality of relationships in case studies for each agreed level of relationship. It is expected that the diagnosis will have the following minimum results: (a) a technical report (which will include a conceptual framework, actor mapping strategy, case studies and recommendations), (b) a practical guide to effective engagement for the implementation of observatories on best practices in relation between actors, and (c) contents for the preparation of curricula for the formation of executing agencies of extractive industries projects.
To that end, the Bank has issued a Request for Proposals (SDP), in order to offer a general contract with an independent firm or consultant to carry out a DIAGNOSIS, MAP OF ACTORS and ROUTE SHEET ON THE RELATIONSHIP SITUATION OF ACTORS RELATIVE TO EXTRACTIVE INDUSTRY TOPICS IN LATIN AMERICA. Those interested in receiving the complete RFP should email their application to Mr. Juan Borga, (firstname.lastname@example.org), indicating in the email the name of their organization and SDP #16-073. They must also properly complete a Supplier Registration Form.
