Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders of the program are school children and teachers, the communities adjacent to the schools, and the government officials. All the stakeholders will be consulted to seek their view and advice for incorporation into the program design and preparation. Public awareness campaign will be undertaken to improve the stakeholders' awareness of the seismic risk and safety. Stakeholders' participation, particularly the women and disabled, will be required in the preparation of seismic emergency response plans. Active civil societies, such as women's unions will be consulted during the program preparation and implementation.
During Project Implementation Stakeholders and beneficiaries will be engaged and empowered through consultation and participation in the program activities, particularly the development of the seismic emergency response plans. Women and disabled are the key focus group for consultation and participation.
