Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultations were carried out with various stakeholders, such as village community, local residents, women's group in the villages, representatives of government officials and executing and implementing agencies. Focus group discussions were conducted with 34 communities in various transmission and distribution subproject locations. Stakeholders were informed about the new project and program. Formal and informal consultations were carried out for the hydropower project including the host community. A village committee was formed in the hydropower project area to act as a key stakeholder during land acquisition and resettlement implementation.
During Project Implementation Consultation will continue with all stakeholders, including civil society, during investment program implementation. For the hydropower project in Moragolla, a housing committee and a resettlement committee, with representation from affected people, will work closely with Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) on implementation of land acquisition and resettlement issues. Continuing consultations are and will be ongoing with wildlife stakeholder organizations, assessing reservoir safety, and developing an appropriate mechanism to guarantee downstream flows between CEB and the Mahaweli Authority to maintain the endangered fish in the tailrace of the Moragolla dam. Information dissemination will continue during program implementation.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services CEB will recruit consultants to provide technical, supervision and monitoring support for implementation of hydropower power generation and other subprojects as well as capacity building for power sector development. The consultants will be recruited using ADB's Guidelines on Use of Consultants.
Procurement Procurement of works, goods, and services will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines. ADB will allow advance contracting. ADB's Procurement Guidelines allow for the use of domestic preference to the goods and turnkey contracts.
