Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project will involve extensive consultations with the project stakeholders, including the EA, IA, PMO, other municipal and provincial government agencies, private companies, design institutes, project affected people and beneficiaries, by way of surveys, stakeholder workshops, focus group discussions, informant interviews and other public consultations.
During Project Implementation The initial due diligence has been conducted through close collaboration and coordination of the project management office, implementing agency, and TA consultants. A number of focus group discussions and key informant interviews have been carried out. A preliminary poverty and social assessment (PSA) was prepared based on the survey, discussions, and interviews. The draft social action plan (SAP) and gender action plan (GAP) have been prepared based on the outcome and consultations carried out with key informants and residents of beneficiary villages and communities. The PSA, SAP, GAP and summary poverty reduction and social strategy will be refined reflecting the results of further consultations with concerned agencies, with a view to enhance the social benefits thereby strengthening the rationale of the project components.
