Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Information sharing and consultations have been conducted with environment NGOs, power plant staff, and communities in the vicinity of the power plant. Environmental aspects of the project, the EIA and the EMP, will be disclosed through public meetings and community consultations.
During Project Implementation Discussions with Jamshoro Power Company Limited, GENCO Holding Company Limited, the Ministry of Water and Power, and other stakeholders have been held to refine feasibility study and will be continued for the drafting of the bidding documents. Public consultations were held to update the environmental impact assessment (EIA) study for the project. Roadshows were also conducted in May and Oct 2015 to attract eligible coal suppliers and EPC contractors as well as build more market-friendly bidding documents.
