Regional: Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 through Community-Led Interventions

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54368-001 Status: Active

This knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the implementation of measures to prepare for and respond to needs arising from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by civil society organizations (CSOs), including community-based organizations and nongovernment organizations (NGOs). The TA will support CSOs to provide services in three areas: (i) community-based mitigation and prevention activities; (ii) social protection for vulnerable communities, including elderly care; and (iii) economic support for those with livelihoods affected by COVID-19. The TA will focus on opportunities for the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to create new partnerships with CSOs in several countries where civil society activity in the COVID-19 response complements the ADB portfolio.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project design responds to the large amount of CSO input ADB has received, where CSOs have shared what work they have been doing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the most urgent needs they report on the ground. As such, the project builds upon a wide range of CSO inputs and mirrors the priorities CSOs are sharing with ADB. The project design incorporates CSO inputs into the approaches for responding to COVID-19.
During Project Implementation The project will be delivered by CSOs, and as such, will incorporate very high levels of stakeholder consultation, participation and communication.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will engage the consultants following the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and its associated staff instructions and Procurement, Portfolio and Financial Management Department memo on COVID-19. ADB will use output-based terms of reference to recruit CSOs meeting the requirements of the terms of reference. ADB will also recruit three individuals to administer the project, one through consulting services and two through non-consulting services.
Procurement The selected CSOs may procure goods and associated services as needed to deliver services to the target beneficiaries.
