Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders groups are the city officials in Davao, public transport owners and/or operators, and passengers. The city officials and passengers will directly benefit from improved management and public transport services. The owners and/or operators could benefit through enhanced services and revenue streams, but could also be negatively impacted by the transition to a modern public transport system. To address the potential negative impact on owners and/or operators, the project preparatory TA will assess needs and prepare livelihood components for inclusion in the loan, if required
During Project Implementation The project will introduce new forms of performance-based contracts for public transport service operations. Such contracts will include a passenger feedback and measurement system ensuring that the passengers are fully involved in the process and have an active and direct involvement in the project outcomes.
