During Project Design

Sufficient resources are allocated in the PPTA to undertake due diligence. A social development specialist will be engaged to prepare: (i) consultation and participation plans, (ii) gender and ethnic participation plans, (iii) resettlement plans/frameworks, and (iv) indigenous people's plans.

The project's pro-poor design elements will include investments to upgrade urban-rural access infrastructure and improve urban environmental conditions that enhance the poor's access to inclusive economic opportunities and services. It will target underdeveloped areas of the GMS economic corridors with substantial concentrations of socially excluded groups, e.g. ethnic groups and the rural and urban poor. Targeted promotion of women-led micro- and small enterprises will create direct employment for the poor based on their needs and capabilities. Meaningful consultations with stakeholders will be conducted to identify the spatial composition and social boundaries of the target areas. During the construction phase employment opportunities will be created for local men and women. The project will also strengthen mechanisms for the poor's involvement in the ongoing operations and maintenance of project facilities.
