Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The proposed RETA will build on the collective knowledge, lessons learned, and results generated through the soon-to-be-completed RETA 6518 (Promoting Inclusive Growth through Business Development at the Base of the Pyramid). Stakeholder inputs and participation came from the market scoping studies, forums, and other knowledge exchange which were organized as part of RETA 6518.
During Project Implementation Stakeholder participation is built-into the design and various activities of the proposed RETA -- feasibility studies, impact assessments, special studies, and other knowledge events.
