Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design An International organization/NGO has been recruited that will conduct farmers consultation and will explain the project objectives, major outputs and outcome to the farmers. The consultation will help in designing on-farm and institutional components of the project and developing strategy for the formation of water users groups.
During Project Implementation An International organization/NGO will mobilize farmers, establish water users groups and manage their training through participatory consultation and on-site demonstrations. It will explain the project objectives, major outputs and outcome to the farmers. The consultation will help in implementation on-farm and institutional components of the project.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The consulting service shall be provided through (a) consultancy firm mainly for feasibility study and (b) IO/NGO for institutional, on-farm and capacity building components. The PPTA will provide 80 person-months through consultancy firm(s) and 14 person-months of IO/NGO. The consultants will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The consultancy firm will be selected through quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method (90:10). A simplified technical proposal will be requested from the shortlisted firms. The IO will be recruited through quality-based selection (SSS) as (i) on-farm and institutional component will have overriding influence on the outcome of the project, (ii) not many suitably experienced IOs available in Pakistan and (iii) proposed assignment can be carried out in different ways, which may constrain comparison of financial proposal. The selected IO will recruit a national non-governmental organization (NGO) for social mobilization and community communication and coordination. A provisional sum will be allocated in the contract of IO for the recruitment of the NGO. ADB fact-finding mission in March 2013 identified two potential relevant international organizations i.e. International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Area (ICARDA) and International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and one NGO i.e. National Rural Support Program (NRSP) due to their experience in on-farm agricultural and water management and community mobilization, presence in the project area and knowledge of local issues and community. The mission agreed the inclusion of IO/NGO services with the Government.
