Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders include XUAR government agencies; AMG's development and reform commission; real estate administration, finance and housing and construction, water resources, land resources, and environmental protection, planning, transportation, public utilities, municipal management, public health, civil affairs, poverty alleviation bureaus; private companies providing work forces; design institutes; project affected people, and project beneficiaries including service customers, urban residents and those near the wetland, as well as ethnic minorities in the old city and in peri-urban areas. Local people were consulted during PPTA implementation and preliminary design through consultations, EMDP, and GAP. PPTA conducted poverty and social analysis and addressed social safeguards. Socioeconomic survey, stakeholder workshops, focus group discussions and informant interviews were conducted during PPTA. This was complemented by survey and consultations under the resettlement and environment safeguards. The PPTA participation strategyfocused on identifying key stakeholders and communicating how they may be affected by the proposed project. Additionally, information was collected to identify ethnically and religiously appropriate ways of community involvement.
During Project Implementation Key documents such as the social action plan (SAP), gender action plan (GAP), resettlement plans, ethnic minority development plan (EMDP) and environmental management plan (EMP) outline consultation and participation for implementation. Loan assurances address implementation and monitoring of the plans.
