Figure 1.1 Approach phase 1
In order to define the strategic options (task 1), the elements that have a positive or negative impact on the strategic options (task 2) and the actors involved and affected (task 3), several discussions with the client have taken place. Furthermore, all relevant stakeholders have been interviewed in a very short period (see annex 1 for a list of interviewees). The outcome is an overview of the economic effects, limitations, opportunities and risks for each strategic option as well as an overview of the different actors involved in Curaรงao. In task 4 the necessary studies to be implemented in phase 2 have been identified and a work plan for phase 2 has been drawn.
