Description The objective of the TA is to strengthen the managerial and institutional capabilities of the local agency governments to efficiently and effectively plan (including budgeting), manage, coordinate, and monitor rural development initiatives under the proposed ADB loan financed FATA Rural Development Project. This includes the field based staff and their reporting Head Offices at the provincial level. Particular emphasis will be given for improving planning and monitoring capacities of the key staff members. The TA foresees working with the existing sanctioned staff positions and does not expect the hiring of additional staff given the significant pressure on non development budget (recurrent costs). The TA also will focus on strengthening managerial capacities of CBOs working in FATA, and will support training needs of the elected councilors under the proposed Local Government elections that at present are postponed. Capacities will be created or upgraded under the TA for line agencies functionaries to interact with the elected councilors at the Union, Tehsil and Tribal Agency levels for development related interventions that lead to participation of communities in planning, implementation and monitoring.
