Description The capacity development technical assistance (TA) will support the implementation of the government's KALAHI CIDSS National Community-Driven Development Project (KC-NCDDP). The KC-NCDDP is the government's flagship program, which aims to improve access to basic services, reduce poverty, and support the recovery and rehabilitation efforts in communities affected by Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan).
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA will support the capacity building and institutional support component of the KC-NCDDP, particularly within the context of using the community-driven development approach in responding to the post-disaster needs of communities. In coordination with other development partners, the TA will assist DSWD in managing the needed capacity building interventions that (i) emphasize needs-based training programs; (ii) respond to program management needs; (iii) develop and sustain institutional capacity for planning and management of training programs; and (iv) strengthen national and subnational capacity to promote, monitor, assist, and evaluate decentralized training programs. In the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, the TA will help build and deepen capacities further for timely implementation of not only ADB supported activities, but also those of other development partners. In addition, the TA will help identify ARMM's capacity development needs for future rollout of the KC-NCDDP. Furthermore, the TA will generate knowledge and replicable practices that will help inform ADB's engagement in social development programs with other developing member countries.
Impact Improved implementation of the KC-NCDDP

Project Outcome

Description of Outcome Improved competencies of program staff and stakeholders to implement the KC-NCDDP
Progress Toward Outcome In March 2016, ADB and the EA looked into the progress of TA implementation and revisited the TA work plan in relation to program requirements. The EA proposed to streamline the TA activities, include additional consulting inputs for the new activities, and further extend the TA completion until 2018. It was also agreed to facilitate TA implementation and formulate a catch-up plan to immediately deliver the TA outputs and support the urgent capacity building requirements of KC-NCDDP.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Learning and development (L&D) framework established

2. Curriculum design and learning modules completed

3. Institutional support systems established

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Output 1:

The TA is implementing activities to prepare learning and development (L&D) framework, which will provide strategic direction for developing the required competencies of program staff and stakeholders to support KC-NCDDP implementation until 2018. The L&D framework involved review of previous and present capacity building interventions to determine updates or changes needed for implementing the succeeding cycles of KC-NCDDP.

A survey of staff competencies is currently being conducted to determine skills gaps that can be addressed by learning interventions and incorporated in the L&D framework.

Output 2:

The TA has prepared training modules on community-based procurement, community finance, and safeguards, which will be used by area coordinating teams to train community volunteers to prepare them for succeeding implementation cycles of KC-NCDDP. Learning modules on participatory local governance and grassroots advocacy are being finalized.

Output 3:

The TA is establishing a continuing professional development (CPD) program, which involves development of a CDD curriculum that will be presented to potential educational institution partners. An e-learning system is currently being developed, which includes digitization and deployment of project manuals through mobile devices and online query functions.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services ADB engaged consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). To provide the TA with flexibility to mobilize expertise as the NCDDP evolves, the terms of reference and selection criteria for 15 person-months of national consulting services in areas including but not limited to financial management, L&D modules, and systems design and programming will be determined during project implementation. The activity costs related to workshops, training, seminars, and conferences and studies will be administered by the consultants. All procurements will be done in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time).
