Local communities are consulted prior to road projects being finalised. Asian Development Bank (ADB) consultants engage communities in preparing Land Acquisition and Resettlement Plans which ensure compensation for displacement and loss of livelihoods. During implementation ADB experts continue to consult communities and ensure the activities are delivered using the ADB’s environmental and social policies. Local communities are also consulted on design and implementation of community centres constructed along improved roads.
