Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

The main stakeholders of the project are the households that will benefit from additional land brought under irrigation and improved access and more reliable irrigation water. They will be consulted and involved in project preparation.

The PPTA will prepare participation plan and MOU will be signed with the Community Organizarions (COs) before starting survey and design of subprojects to ensure benefit sharing. The new communal land to be brought under irrigation should be equally divided in all households.

During Project Implementation

Beneficiaries will be mobilized through social mobilization process and community organizations (COs) will be formed. They will participate in identification, planning, design and implementation of the subprojects.

The social mobilization process and trainings to manage and operate irrigation facilities as well as management of COs will empower the beneficiaries for taking their own decisions. The new land belonging to communities will be equally divided and landless, poor, vulnerable households will also get equal share. All household in a community would be member of the COs and have equal voice.

Business Opportunities

Local experts are available in the market Individual consultants will also be cost effective and recruitment will consume lesser time.
