Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Key ministries are expected to be involved in the implementation of FDERP-SF, namely MEF as EA, and the Ministries of Transport and Public Works (MPWT), Water Resources and Meteorology (MOWRAM), and Rural Development (MRD) as IAs. The National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) will also be consulted. It is envisaged that consultants currently assigned under relevant on-going ADB-financed projects in Cambodia will be engaged to assist IAs in preparing technical specifications and procurement packages for FDERP-SF sub-projects. In addition, international and national project implementation consultants will be needed during FDERP-SF project implementation to assist the EA and IAs to expedite preparation, monitoring and reporting on environmental and social safeguards and gender aspects, mitigate fiduciary risks, and undertake procurement and construction supervision activities.
During Project Implementation Previous ADB experience in disaster response and infrastructure reconstruction indicates that (i) quick preparation of targeted investments combined with effective management arrangements, fiduciary and safeguard measures in close cooperation with Government will result in tangible benefits to affected beneficiaries, (ii) leadership by the EA (MEF) as well as ownership from IAs (MPWT, MRD and MOWRAM) is instrumental in accelerating implementation, (iii) simple project design and implementation arrangements alleviate bottlenecks in implementation. As natural damages are expected to increase in the future, more systematic and coordinated responses as well as greater capacity to mobilize available resources, particularly at the subnational levels, will be required by Government.
