Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The CDTA was conceived during a series of discussions between ADB and MOWP and Climate Change Division during reconnaissance and fact-finding missions in June and September 2013. It builds on ongoing activities in CCS being supported by ADB in other countries, and will help expand ADB's support for CCS to other high-priority developing member countries as a way of mitigating carbon emissions.
During Project Implementation A workshop is being organized in Q2 2016, which will be the first part of stakeholder specific consultation. In addition, we will conduct Review Missions jointly with relevant government agencies.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will require 15 person-months of international and 34 person-months of national consulting services. ADB will engage consultants according to its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Because of the highly specialized nature of the CCS technology and the limited number of experts in the field, the TA will be implemented by a team of international and national consultants. The preferred method would be recruitment through a firm using quality-based selection. If it cannot be done due to the limited firms with required expertise, consultants will be hired on an individual basis.
Procurement Equipment required under the TA, including computers and GIS software for mapping purposes, will be procured following ADB''s Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time).
