During Project Design

NGOs and CBOs will be engaged as part of the social assessment undertaken by the TA. The proposed project will build on the consultation and community participation exercises undertaken during the TA, with the support from consultants and NGOs. These include community participation for planning, design and implementation.

Consultations with private sector, particularly potential investors, will be key to the design of the project (particularly development of the port and special economic zone). This may involve road shows in different locations and focus group discussions organized through local and national chamber of commerce and industry associations.

During Project Implementation Intensive community consultations will also be carried over to the project implementation stages and user awareness will be included as an important activity.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Ten individual comprising 3 international consultants and 7 national consultants (providing 30 person-months of input) were engaged to undertake the PPTA. Consultants were mobilized in a staggered manner with a focus on prioritizing the advance actions on: (i) recruiting the DSC, and (ii) undertaking requisite surveys and investigations.
