During Project Design

National, city, and commune government officials, development partners, Steering Committee for poverty reduction, small business owners, affected community representatives, and relevant mass organizations (CSOs) such as Vietnam Women's Union and Youth Union. City Authorities and metro implementation authority will be closely involved in the project design preparation. During implementation of the resettlement plan and Environmental Management Plan, individual and group consultations will be undertaken with affected people across a range of sites in urban areas. A participatory approach will be used to determine the location and design of some project features, such as station entrance location, underpasses and footbridges for local communities.

The ensuing project will empower poor people through provision of affordable transport service. For those with mobility impairments, the project design features will provide them with enhanced mobility compared to other forms of transport. The project design during the PPTA stage will incorporate the results of consultations with transport users from a variety of profiles, including poor and other marginalized groups, especially on issues of station and ancillary infrastructure design and fare regimes.

The key relevant CSOs are mass organizations, including the Women's Union, Youth Union and Fatherland Front.

During Project Implementation As of March 2016, initial survey works on buildings, residential areas and technical utilities along Metro line 3 has been completed, as well as the survey for station accessibility and integration improvements. Initial examination were done on the environmental, social, gender, and land impacts/ resettlement aspects. Consultation process will commence with all stakeholders.
