|During Project Implementation||
A poverty and social analysis (PSA) and consultation meetings were conducted during the PPTA to identify views and concerns of the beneficiaries, especially vulnerable groups, to inform the project design and develop measures for effective implementation of the project. Mechanisms of local communities' engagement were studied to improve water and sanitation and solid waste management service delivery process. Accessibility and affordability of water supply and sanitation and heating services were assessed during the PPTA through the PSA.
Key documents, such as the environmental management plan, ethnic minority development plan, gender action plan, resettlement plans, and social development action plan outline consultation and participation of beneficiaries. Loan assurances address implementation and monitoring of the plans. Local people were consulted during the PPTA and preliminary design. Social inclusion measures are incorporated into project design directly or as part of the gender action plan or social development action plan. Public consultation workshops on the environment were conducted in three project sites.
|Consulting Services||The PPTA has engaged individual consultants and an international consulting firm. Quality- and cost-based selection method was used for the firm selection, with full technical proposal and quality-cost ratio of 90:10. All consultant recruitment activities will follow ADB''s Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).|
