Rural Infrastructure Development Project Implementation Cycle

With support from the Mahalla Citizens’ Assembly, Qishloq Facilitators and Engineers will facilitate all the steps of the process

Structure of the Mahalla Development Unit (MDU): Chair, Vice-chair, Secretary and members. MDUs should have a Young Women Subcommittee, and a Young Men Subcommittee

During COVID-19, MDU members will be selected by village residents: 1 man and 1 woman; 1 young man and 1 young woman will be selected in each street in the village

Otherwise, members will be elected, and 60 percent of all eligible voters from each street must vote.

The socio-economic analysis will include:

- Resource map

- Well-being analysis

- Health analysis

- Education analysis

- Seasonal calendar (in selected villages)

The findings from the socio-economic analysis will be presented to community members, who will then develop a vision for the village development. The implementation of the village development plan should be organized in phases, and community members should agree on what should be funded by the project, other donors, and by village residents.

Step 5: Approval of Qishloq Development Plan by District Project Committee

To check if sub-project prioritized by village is not already included in any state programs

To mitigate any possible social and environmental risks, relevant Environmental and Social documents will be prepared throughout project implementation

One firm will be hired per village. A Mahalla Development Unit representative will sit in tender committees that will select the firm

Meeting between design firm and village residents

A Mahalla Development Unit representative will sit in tender committee that will select construction firm

Trained community monitors will check compliance with design agreed, decent labor conditions, etc.

Social audits will ensure accountability of contractors, local administrations etc. Three audits will be conducted in each village during project implementation.

With support from District Project Committee

By relevant ministry. In the case of autonomous water supply projects, operations and maintenance will be carried out by village residents
