Stakeholder/ Clients engagement at the early, project concept stage is about seeking potential local support, different options and alternatives, identifying key issues and concerns .These concerns (and opportunities) should then get fed back into the decision-making process. So that our project concept stage should be highly prospective . GOOD PRACTICE POINTER : • Refer to any past stakeholder information and consultation • Disclose and consult selectively in the very early stages. • Disclose information on alternatives and design or location options. • Where possible, engage with government during strategic planning. • Review adequacy of any existing grievance procedures. • Review potential legal, regulatory, and lender requirements for stakeholder engagement. • Ensure that any project risk analysis includes stakeholder issue. • For complex projects, consider forming a stakeholders’ planning forum.
