Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

As part of the project preparation process, a mapping of current actions on disaster management was conducted. An ADB consultant interviewed relevant development organizations (UN Agencies, NGOs and donor agencies) specialized in or implementing humanitarian response, disaster risk reduction or disaster recovery projects. In addition to current work in disaster management, the respondents provided feedback on their engagement with NCDM and line ministries and identified areas where the country's disaster coordination could be improved. These organizations also identified technical areas where their expertise may be tapped for capacity building activities at the national and sub-national level through direct engagement with the project or independently.

Further, the project design is also informed by the results of the institutional capacity assessment of the NCDM and its sub-national units. Interviews were conducted with NCDM staff from all departments and relevant staff from line ministries, NCDDS and MEF. Among the areas discussed are cross-sectoral communication and individual or joint action on disaster management. The results of the assessment were presented to NCDM in March 2013, the proposed project activities were assessed being responsive to the issues raised. A joint consultation meeting between government agencies, development partners and NGOs were held on 12 April 2013 to review the proposed actions, seek collaboration, harness synergies and avoid potential duplication.

During Project Implementation

During the Project Implementation, regular coordination meetings and information sharing will be conducted with other stakeholders including development partners and NGOs to promote synergy between projects and avoid overlapping.

Currently, the NCDM and NCDDS are in the processing of developing the project six month implementation plan.
