Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation

During Project Implementation The project implementation consultant will create awareness raising, develop water users associations and farmers' organization and private agriculture support services; all through consultation following the participatory approach.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. The three consultancy services with an estimated 823 person-months including 4 person-months of international and 819 person-months of national experts are required to (i) facilitate PDA project management and implementation, (ii) strengthen the institutional and operational capacity of the implementing agency, and (iii) design review for quality assurance and efficiency. The national consulting services will be used due to adequate in-country capacity of similar assignments, lack of availability of quality international experts due to security reasons and cost effectiveness. Consulting firm for the detailed design will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a quality: cost ratio of 90:10. The Consultant will field their core staff for all key components. The consultants, who were involved in the upstream work such as feasibility study of this project, will be considered eligible to compete for detailed design, should they express interest in doing so, their current activities do not grant them an unfair competitive advantage (see para. 1.12 of the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants; 2013).
