Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Since 1987 when the Asian Development Bank (ADB) became the first multi-lateral development bank to establish a policy on disaster assistance, ADB's approach to disaster assistance has steadily evolved to (i) recognize that disasters compound vulnerability and intensify and prolong poverty, and (ii) more proactively address the root causes of disaster risk as an important link in sustainable development. Under the current Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy, adopted in 2004, ADB has developed an Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRM) approach combining disaster risk reduction, elements of climate change adaptation and disaster risk financing.

The report will provide an opportunity to further advance ADB's proactive approach to disaster risks by linking IDRM more closely with ADB's core strengths in investment planning and economic development.

Impact Increased interest and capacity of DMCs to guide investment in IDRM measures, using public expenditures, incentives and market mechanisms to align stakeholder interests and contributions.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will be the executing agency for the RS-RDTA. The TA will be implemented by the Regional and Sustainable Development Department (RSDD). The TA will utilize 10.9 person-months of consultancy inputs to be provided by 5 international consultants (4.6 person-months) and 6 national consultants (6.3 person-months). The TA consultants will be engaged on an individual basis, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). Given the urgency and the limited time available under the project and the need to identify consultants from a relatively small pool of international and national experts, the single source selection method will be used. Disbursements under the RS-RDTA TA will be made in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). The TA is expected to be implemented from May 2012 to October 2012.
