Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A diversity analysis has been undertaken before the stakeholder analysis covering physical, socioeconomic, and usage diversity. Stakeholder mapping identified direct and indirect beneficiaries, pressure groups, and other interest groups at the national, divisional, project, and community levels. The stakeholders were grouped into seven categories comprising: (i) users of the main sewerage system, (ii) users of septic tanks in areas not served by the sewerage system, (iii) managers of sewerage systems, (iv) other service providers, (v) regulators and administrators, (vi) policy makers, and (vii) other interest groups. The expectations and likely benefits, and issues and concerns, of these stakeholders were analyzed in the stakeholder analysis and considered in the project design, particularly in developing participation strategies. Information dissemination and consultations have been undertaken to ensure stakeholder participation in project design.
During Project Implementation Information dissemination and consultation will continue throughout project implementation.
