Stakeholder Communication, Participation and Consultation
During Project Design In the course of social assessment of the project influence area, a series of participatory consultation were held with project stakeholders and beneficiaries in various socioeconomic groups. Focus group discussions were organized at various locations. The participants included the gram panchayat sarpanch (village or small-town head), anganwadi workers (those working at child-care and mother-care centers), midwives, schoolteachers, farmers, traders, businessmen, and local leaders. Sessions exclusively for women were also held. The common people and the key stakeholders articulated the perceived benefits from the road development project. They were positive about the need for the project in areas lacking access to basic social and infrastructure facilities, particularly during the monsoon season. The people also expressed satisfaction at the prospect of connectivity of the areas with the national highways network in the project influence area and better access to the state capital in Patna.
During Project Implementation BSRDC has undertaken consultations with the project stakeholders and beneficiaries to apprise them of economic development in the region. The perceptions and priorities of the people have been taken into consideration when finalizing the project design and preparing mitigation measures to address any risks.
