Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project team conducted a number of extensive, in-depth consultations with civil society and beneficiaries during processing of the project. Participants in the consultations included (i) farmers whose lands are in the project area; (ii) Makhalla communities, which represented local communities; (iii) women committee members; and (iv) representatives of water consumers' associations. During these consultations, ADB presented the project impact, outcome, outputs, potential environment and involuntary resettlement impacts, and associated mitigation measures. The team also discussed a summary result on the socioeconomic survey, including interviews and social and gender analyses. There were extensive Q&A sessions following the presentations. The participants showed support for the project. They also provided suggestions on the proposed project activities, which have been incorporated in project design. Two workshops, at inception of project preparation (April 2012) and completion (March 2013) were also held, which included participation by representatives of ministries, development partners, as well as diplomatic delegations. Participants were supportive of the Project.
During Project Implementation ADB will closely monitor the status of the compliance with the loan covenants during project implementation including the government's assurance of compliance with core labor standards.
