During Project Design

The PPTA would prepare a subproject Consultation and Participation Framework (CPF) as well as Consultation and Participation Plans for the representative subprojects. The project will build upon past ADB project experience. A CPF is necessary since there will be approximately 30 subprojects each with different PRI needs and stakeholder concerns and arrangements. The CPF would be used to prepare CPP for each subproject during loan implementation.

Primary information will be gathered through field interviews and rapid rural assessments to ascertain stakeholder views and development constraints and concerns during the PPTA. The Group meetings will be held to provide local insight into the social and technical issues related to the subprojects. Separate meetings will be held with female stakeholders and identified vulnerable people. District level meetings of commune representatives, representatives of civil society and NGOs will be held to ensure full transparency during the PPTA and loan project implementation.

The C&P plans would guide the engineering design. The engineering design would be focused on meeting the needs of the target beneficiaries. An example of this would be the investment in paved walkways and bicycle paths that ease the mobility of the population as well as separate them from motorized traffic. The C&P Plan would be critical in locating and designing this infrastructure.
