Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders include Xinjiang regional government agencies; AMG's development and reform commission; real estate administration, finance and housing and construction, water resources, land resources, and environmental protection, planning, transportation, public utilities, municipal management, public health, civil affairs, poverty alleviation bureaus; private companies providing work forces; design institutes; project affected people, and project beneficiaries including service customers, residents near the river and neighborhoods, as well as ethnic minorities in the old city and in peri-urban areas, as well as new migrants to the city. Local people will be consulted during PPTA implementation and preliminary design through consultations, EMDP, and GAP. PPTA will conduct poverty and social analysis and address social safeguards. Socioeconomic survey, stakeholder workshops, focus group discussions and informant interviews will be conducted during PPTA. This will be complemented by survey and consultations under the resettlement and environment safeguards. The proposed participation strategy during PPTA will focus on identifying key stakeholders and communicating how they may be affected by the proposed project. Additionally, information will be collected to indentify ethnically and religiously appropriate ways of community-based sanitation efforts.
During Project Implementation Key documents such as the social action plan (SAP), gender action plan (GAP), resettlement plans, ethnic minority development plan (EMDP) and environmental management plan (EMP) will outline consultation and participation for implementation. Loan assurances will address implementation and monitoring of the plans.
