Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Initial stakeholders are: Government agencies at provincial and local levels; local communities; farmers; businesses; affected households; ethnic minorities; poor and vulnerable sections of the community including women.

Consultation began during the preparation of the feasibility study. The ADB PPTA conducted initial stakeholder consultations with the local railway bureau, a railway design institute, and provincial, prefectural, and county governments. Further consultation will be carried out during the PPTA phase for environment assessment, resettlement planning, and poverty and social analysis. Stakeholder workshops and other public meetings will be conducted during the PPTA, and followed up during the detailed design and implementation stages.
During Project Implementation Consulting services recruitment is ongoing. The TA completion date extended to 30 September 2018.

The development of multimodal hubs will support regional economic development, increase communities' mobility, and to promote energy efficiency and sustainability. This is in line with ADB's directions under the Sustainable Transport Initiative Operational Plan and will build upon EATC's previous TA. The firm will specifically assist the CRC design institute in preparing the conceptual station design to ensure a high standard in the hub buildings' sustainability and energy-efficiency, as well as in developing efficient connections between the railway station and public transport modes and other nearby facilities and amenities.

2. The firm will (i) assist the EA preparing the design and scope of the project components and ensure adherence to international best-practice, (ii) conduct due diligence on the technical design and engineering, (iii) support the social and environmental safeguards evaluations, working with the design institutes to ensure ADB safeguards documents are properly prepared, (iv) conduct economic and financial analyses, (v) prepare a sustainability and energy efficiency assessment of the two hubs, (vi) provide capacity development and training to the EA and IA in multimodal hub design, sustainable building technologies and social and environmental safeguards (viii) prepare a project implementation plan for hub development, as well as a procurement plan for electrification equipment.
