Description The capacity development technical assistance (TA) supports the implementation of the government's KALAHI CIDSS National Community-Driven Development Project (KC-NCDDP). The KC-NCDDP is a flagship program that 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 KC-NCDDP, particularly within the context of using the community-driven development approach in responding to the post-disaster needs of communities. 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. It 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 the future rollout of 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

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

1. Learning and development framework established

The TA prepared the KC-NCDDP L&D framework that provides strategic direction for developing the required competencies of program staff and stakeholders and supports KC-NCDDP implementation until 2019. The framework preparation involved close coordination with NPMO; consultation workshops with national, regional and municipal program staff; and analysis of competency assessment results. The KC-NCDDP Management has approved the framework.

2. Curriculum design and learning modules completed

The TA has prepared training modules and materials on community-based procurement, community finance, safeguards, and M&E which were used for training municipal staff and community volunteers. The enhanced guidance notes on Barangay Development Planning and Management (Makilahok) has been prepared and reviewed by stakeholders including DILG. The TA initially supported the development of modules on Makilahok to be used for the roll-out to LGUs in Q4 2018. As agreed to with the EA, the TA supports the development of a training module on community facilitation, which was pilot tested with most LGU- hired staff in August 2018. The TA supported the delivery of a 10-day management and leadership training to selected national and regional program staff members aimed at enhancing their competencies in performance management.

3. Institutional support systems established

The TA has completed the (i) development of an e-learning web and mobile applications that make the KCNCDDP manuals (in editable format), training materials, and other learning resources available to program staff, and has an online testing facility for monitoring and evaluating learning outcomes, (ii) development of mobile application for geotagging subprojects, (iii) development of communication materials. The EA has rolled out the e-learning system at the regional level and started disseminating the communication materials that were launched in August 2017. The TA had explored institutional and organizational arrangements for managing and sustaining L&D programs. Three universities were consulted on this. The TA will produce two knowledge products on L&D; one is in the final stage of publication, while the other is currently being prepared.

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).
