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

1. The TA is supporting implementation of five subprojects on community-based DRM. The subprojects are being implemented in Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam and are focusing on testing innovative tools, products and approaches for strengthening resilience at the community level. The subprojects will be completed by June 2017.

2. The TA is supporting a subproject on peer-to-peer learning for strengthening community resilience. The subproject is being implemented in Myanmar, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam and is directly contributing to the implementation of the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response Work Programme. The subproject will be completed by 30 July 2017.

3. The TA is supporting the development of three guidelines which aims at scaling up community-based DRM. The guidelines include (i) scaling up community disaster resilience through community-driven development programs; (ii) strengthening community resilience through social protection programs; and (iii) strengthening resilience through community-level infrastructure. The guidelines will be finalized by 31 July 2017

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

Activities

23 June 2014, Bangkok - Regional Workshop on Strengthening Community Resilience in Southeast Asia

cambodia railway
Workshop participants in Bangkok emphasize the urgent need to strengthen community resilience by addressing the underlying causes of vulnerability through community-driven development action and by building on existing knowledge and practices within the communities.

More than 60 representatives from government and United Nations agencies, regional intergovernmental organizations, civil society and grassroots women’s organizations, and the private sector attended the regional workshop, which was organized under the technical assistance project, TA 8570. Participants shared experiences and approaches on the following areas:

  • innovative solutions for strengthening community resilience,
  • scaling up of interventions on community resilience, and
  • peer-to-peer learning on community resilience.

The workshop also provided guidance on the subprojects that would be implemented under the TA, and the design of the planned regional review on policy and practice supporting implementation of interventions to strengthen community resilience.

The key recommendation of the workshop was that urgent action is required to strengthen community resilience as large numbers of people continue to be affected by natural hazards and economic losses continue to rise. This action should be undertaken in the context of wider community-driven development, addressing the underlying causes of vulnerability through development actions, building on existing knowledge and practices within the communities, and scaling up measures to address the increasing and diverse nature of risk.
