Stakeholder concerns can only be addressed if clear rules and guidelines are in place to enable stakeholders to comment on projects and to guide project participants and DOEs on how such concerns need to be sought and addressed. We recommend the following reforms:

  • Provide clear rules and guidelines on how to conduct local stakeholder consultations
  • Establish clear guidelines to DOEs on how to assess stakeholder consultations
  • Increase access to information or the global stakeholder consultation
  • Increase the transparency of the validation process after the end of public commenting period
  • Establish a grievance mechanism for affected stakeholders
