Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The investment program will prepare a consultation and participation plan focusing on (i) identification of stakeholders and target groups, and baseline surveys; (ii) key message selection and use of information, education, and communication programs; and (iii) outreach to communities, schools, slums, and workers through various media and consultation activities for sharing information and obtaining feedback to refine the investment program design and implementation, as appropriate. The GESI action plan will ensure the participation of women and socially excluded groups in the investment program. Key stakeholders include the executing and implementing agencies of the GOR, nongovernment organizations, community-based organizations, and the local residents including the poor, women, children, students, media, and the local political and public representatives.
During Project Implementation Inclusion of the socially excluded and poor is important for two reasons: provide access to women and the poor to affordable urban services, and skill development for better job opportunities. The consultation and participation plan will be effectively designed and implemented to ensure widespread and meaningful participation. Nongovernment organizations will be engaged to facilitate the participation of the poor and women, especially in low income communities, and undertake awareness program on various socially relevant issues such as legal connections, proper water use and water conservation, benefits of sewerage connections, potential capacity building and business opportunities, etc.
