Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design To ensure inclusive development, the project included PWD and DPOs as stakeholders, decision-makers, and beneficiaries at all levels and stages of project processing. During project reconnaissance, a consultation was conducted with more than 20 DPOs representing different subgroups of PWD. Their inputs have been used to formulate the project's components.
During Project Implementation Using a participatory consultative approach, the TA consultants worked closely with, and reported to designated focal points of the executing and implementing agencies, the multisectoral working group, and subgroups set up for the preparation of the project. Civil society and international development partners involved in disability issues were actively involved during TA processing and implementation. A set of participatory and consultative stakeholder workshops were organized (i) at the beginning of TA implementation to gather initial inputs for the work to be carried out under the TA, and (ii) towards the midterm of TA implementation to report on the work accomplished and agree on an initial project design and monitoring framework. A series of focus group discussions and key informant interviews were organized with actors in the disability sector, including PWD, community members, and local and central government officials.
