Regional: Supporting the Operationalization of Community-Driven Development in Developing Member Countries

Sovereign Project | 47156-001

Summary

Building on the results of the two previous CDD technical assistance projects, and to sustain the momentum of initiatives that have been undertaken, this technical assistance project will address the following issues: (i) weak coordination among sector agencies to effectively deliver basic services in response to local development needs; (ii) limited knowledge of DMC officials on how to design CDD projects/programs appropriate to the country context; and (iii) lack of ICT infrastructure that can improve the basic service delivery at the local level. In response to growing DMC demand for CDD knowledge solutions, this technical assistance project will produce analytical work on the CDD approach to support the inclusive growth agenda; conduct cross-country learning exchanges on CDD approach to contribute in the long run to building the capacity of selected DMCs; and identify ICT initiatives to improve the basic service delivery at the local level.

Description

Building on the results of the two previous CDD technical assistance projects, and to sustain the momentum of initiatives that have been undertaken, this technical assistance project will address the following issues: (i) weak coordination among sector agencies to effectively deliver basic services in response to local development needs; (ii) limited knowledge of DMC officials on how to design CDD projects/programs appropriate to the country context; and (iii) lack of ICT infrastructure that can improve the basic service delivery at the local level. In response to growing DMC demand for CDD knowledge solutions, this technical assistance project will produce analytical work on the CDD approach to support the inclusive growth agenda; conduct cross-country learning exchanges on CDD approach to contribute in the long run to building the capacity of selected DMCs; and identify ICT initiatives to improve the basic service delivery at the local level. Component 1 will analyze the local mechanism of converging pro-poor programs that will provide as inputs to the DMCs that are interested to start up or scale up CDD approach. More specifically, the analytical work of component 1 will feed into component 2 as reference for those selected DMCs that will be assisted with the design of the CDD approach. Participating DMCs for component 2 will also receive technical inputs from DMC representatives of Indonesia and the Philippines through cross-country learning exchanges to operationalize the CDD approach. The selected DMCs from components 1 and 2 will receive further assistance to identify ICT tools that can improve access to basic services delivery that will complement the CDD project implementation.

The knowledge generated and outputs produced through this technical assistance project will be distilled during the regional conference in the latter part of implementation, and more regularly shared through the CDD Network established under R-CDTA 7543. The proposed technical assistance project will directly support ADB's regional departments in increasing the demand from the DMCs for knowledge solutions to operationalize CDD initiatives, which can be further accelerated with the introduction of ICT applications that can increase access to basic service delivery. Proposed DMCs to be covered by each component will be finalized jointly with the regional departments prior to the fact-finding mission scheduled in Q3 2013. The selection of the DMCs will be based on the relevance of the applicability of the technical assistance activities to ongoing or planned ADB projects. The DMCs included for analytical work in component 1 are Indonesia and the Philippines. Two or three DMCs for conducting cross-country learning exchanges in component 2 will be selected based on discussions with the regional departments; and two or three DMCs for ICT initiative in component 3 will be selected from the DMCs that will be involved in either component 1 or 2.
