Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design ADB conducted a fact-finding mission on 23-27 September 2010 to (i) confirm the timeliness, relevance, and usefulness of the CDTA; (ii) agree with the stakeholders on the scope, objectives, outputs, methodology and activities, implementation arrangements, cost estimates and financing plan, and consulting services for the CDTA; and (iii) brief on and obtain support for the CDTA from the Embassy of Japan (EOJ). The Mission met with key officials of NEDA and DILG. NEDA and ADB agreed on the Mission's findings and recommendations through a Memorandum of Understanding.
During Project Implementation After the TA was approved by ADB in April 2011, ADB conducted an inception mission on 11 October - 5 December 2011 to discuss and agree with the stakeholders on the TA implementation plan and work programs, fielding of consultants, and refinements in the outline of terms of reference (TOR) of consultants. The Mission met with key officials and staff of NEDA, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Municipal Development Fund Office (MDFO), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and the World Bank. The Mission's findings and recommendations were presented to the Socioeconomic Planning Secretary and NEDA Director General (DG) at a wrap-up meeting on 5 December 2011.
