Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Key initial stakeholders are: (i) poor families and their members, who spend a lot of time and effort on delivering water and housework; (ii) local government and Mahallas (self-governance bodies); (iii) project management unit (PMU); (iv) Water Consumers' Associations (WCAs); and (v) relevant nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs). A focus on data collection and analysis should be undertaken on vulnerable population groups (poor and women).
During Project Implementation Participation should be ensured during the implementation of the PPTA through consultations with key stakeholders at both central and local government levels, WCA, etc. The surveys to be conducted for the PPTA socioeconomic survey and the resettlement plans will ensure that the issues brought up by the residents and their preferences are understood and that the target population is also informed about the project goals and objectives in general. Data collection and analysis should focus on vulnerable population groups, especially the poor, women, and ethnic minorities. In addition to surveys of families, interviews will be conducted with chairpersons of WCAs, local government and Mahallas within the project areas, which will be essential to the wide dissemination of information on the proposed project. Workshops will be undertaken to present findings, recommendation, and proposed project components to get feedbacks from all stakeholders.
