Environmental assessment and reporting documents shall follow the procedures in the EMC. These documents shall be endorsed by the executing and implementing agencies and submitted to ADB for final clearance. A simple Environment Management Table (EMT) has been prepared to mitigate any potential negative impacts and health and safety risks during rehabilitation work of buildings. The EMT includes basic requirements for implementation and supervision of works.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation

During Project Design
A Stakeholder communication strategy has been prepared for the project. These strategies were based on stakeholders' consultations that mapped and identified critical audiences and tracked the behavior continuum and determined barriers to the uptake of behavior related to domestic violence recognition and prevention, reporting, and protection of families. The consultations also explored the key stakeholders' current and preferred media, ICT and traditional communication channels, and identification of key community influencers. The scope of this communication strategy was also shaped by consultations with donors and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) with current gender-based violence and/or domestic violence programs to build on gains, maximize resources and avoid duplication.The consultations involved representatives of Executing and Implementing Agencies directly and indirectly mandated to implement the Law on Combating Domestic Violence , as well as adjunct service providers who form Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDTs) . Donors and CSOs with existing DV and gender-based programs, sectoral organizations representing disabled people, Civil Society Organizations with experience in psychological counseling and community work on gender issues, as well as mass media practitioners also gave their inputs in separate consultations. In each of the project sites, separate consultations were held with project-affected groups including adolescent girls and boys, men, women, and survivors of domestic violence. The results of these consultations served as inputs to shape this communication strategy and will influence the direction of BCC (Behavior Change Communication) activities.
During Project Implementation
As the project is getting closer to completion, finalize the remaining tasks to (i) complete and conclude the remaining consultancy services for a survey on victimology, criminology; ICT and BCC campaign; (ii) remaining capacity building activities and workshops at 11 provinces and 1 district and 2 local study visits; (iii) organize national forum for MDTs;
