Regional : Scoping of Community Resilience Partnership Program
ADB is developing the Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) to support ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) scale up resilience investments (i) targeted at the poor and marginalized population; (ii) implemented at the local level (household, communities, small and micro enterprises, and local governments); and (iii) in the context of wider inclusive development and governance reforms. CRPP is envisioned as a partnership between ADB and a wide range of development partners to collectively support DMCs in scaling up their resilience-building investments at the local level. The implementation of CRPP will support DMCs in achieving their commitments to global agreements: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement of Climate Change, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The CRPP is aligned with the priorities of ADB's Strategy 2030, which aims at eradicating extreme poverty and achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific.

|Description||ADB is developing the Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) to support ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) scale up resilience investments (i) targeted at the poor and marginalized population; (ii) implemented at the local level (household, communities, small and micro enterprises, and local governments); and (iii) in the context of wider inclusive development and governance reforms. CRPP is envisioned as a partnership between ADB and a wide range of development partners to collectively support DMCs in scaling up their resilience-building investments at the local level. The implementation of CRPP will support DMCs in achieving their commitments to global agreements: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement of Climate Change, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The CRPP is aligned with the priorities of ADB's Strategy 2030, which aims at eradicating extreme poverty and achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific. It will support strengthening linkages between operational priority 3 of the Strategy 2030--tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability--with other operational priorities such as addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, accelerating progress in gender equality, making cities more livable, promoting rural development and food security, and strengthening governance and institutional capacity. The TA will undertake a scoping exercise for establishing the CRPP, directly aligning with the ongoing discussion at the global level to introduce an action track on local resilience under the Global Commission on Adaptation.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Asia and the Pacific Region is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and disaster risk. Prolonged heat waves, coastal sea-level rise, changes in rainfall patterns, and increase in intensity and frequency of extreme weather events are affecting the lives of millions of populations, especially the poor and marginalized people whose livelihoods are often dependent on climate-sensitive sectors. The vulnerabilities in these sectors are increasing due to changes in climate variables, often requiring the poor to adopt different coping strategies (i.e., reducing consumption levels and making investment choices on education, health, and livelihoods) that may impact their long-term well-being. Thus, if efforts to reduce poverty are to be sustained, increasing investments in resilience should be one of the core strategies of poverty reduction.
Climate and disaster risks are set to increase. With rampant and unplanned development taking place in many countries, more communities are being exposed to natural hazards. Informal urban settlements are often located in unsafe areas and lack access to infrastructure and social services. Poorer rural communities, which often live close to subsistence levels, are already struggling with existing changes in weather patterns. Investments in resilience, therefore, need to reach scale, which may entail a combination of actions: increased organizational capacity, finances, linkages with interventions across sectors, and partnerships.
Investments in building resilience of the poor and marginalized population increased at the local level.

|Consulting Services||The TA will be implemented by ADB's Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Division of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department from April to December 2019. The TA will utilize 8 person-months of consultant inputs to be provided by 3 international consultants and 1 national (PHI) consultant. All consulting services will be engaged by ADB as individuals and on output-based (lump-sum) contracts. Advanced contracting procedures are proposed for engaging the consultants. ADB will engage the consultants following the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and its associated project administration instructions and/or staff instructions.|

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.
The Access to Information Policy (AIP) 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.
