Infrastructure development in the past was often implemented without adequately taking into consideration the possible negative environmental and social impacts. Drawing from the experience of the Bumbuna Hydropower project in Sierra Leone, this paper proposes to complement safeguard policies by establishing, at the beginning of the project identification phase, two-way communication mechanisms and a continuous consultation process, allowing the government and the donors to interact with key stakeholders.
The book proposes an integrated approach where communication is seen as a powerful analytical tool, and as an instrument to support the decisionmaking process by enabling it to be more transparent, consensual, and responsive to the beneficiaries' need, thus avoiding future problems and criticisms, which might delay and even bring the project to a halt at a later stage.
