Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The draft assessments and proposals will be discussed extensively in consultations with key stakeholders, including the local government officials, elected leaders of municipalities, central government ministries and agencies (e.g. Local Government Division, Local Government Engineering Department, Roads and Highways Department and Ministry of Industries), citizen groups, professional associations and business groups (e.g. chamber of commerce). The proposals of priority investments will be consulted with the respective stakeholders of each project according to the ADB's safeguard guidelines.
