Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design During project formulation, stakeholder participation was ensured through open workshops and consultations with beneficiary groups and elected civil leaders. Although summarized as a discrete component under the Project, the consultation process will be integrated throughout all components.
During Project Implementation Stakeholders will be continuously consulted during project implementation and maintenance of the completed facilities, to ensure their interests have been addressed and to bring about their greater ownership of the facilities and cost recovery measures. Existing stakeholder networks will be used in the delivery of the process and will serve as a conduit for the Project. The consultative process is designed to involve all stakeholders in the decision-making processes of planning and implementing of the Project.
