Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A stakeholder analysis will be undertaken to identify key project stakeholders, their project-related interests, and their role in determining project feasibility and success. A wide range of stakeholders and beneficiaries will be consulted during project preparation, including Government officials working on ongoing RWSS projects. Other stakeholders include government agencies; international and bilateral agencies; nongovernment organizations; mass organizations (e.g., the Viet Nam Women's Union); provincial, district, and commune authorities; civil society; private water vendors; and project-affected people and communities. Stakeholders and their roles will be disaggregated by sex and ethnic group where possible.
During project preparation, a series of stakeholder consultations and TA workshops disseminated information and sought consensus on project design to aid the preparation of required TA reports. Participatory planning and appraisal techniques will be used to understand community priorities and perceptions regarding RWSS. Informant interviews and focused group discussions will be held with men and women from different ethnic groups, jointly and individually.
