No comments :

Component C
Financed under the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction (JFPR) is geared towards improved resilience to future disasters and effective project management, coordination, monitoring, and reporting.

This component is a $4,276,900.00 portion of the total $20million grant composed of 2 sub-component implementations handled by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and the ADB


Sub-component 1. Commonly referred to by the project team (and in this blog) as C.1 or C1, this sub-component aims at improving resilience to future disasters. It intends to strengthen the capacity of the LGUs for guiding the reconstruction process, which will contribute to long-term resilience by mitigating the underlying causes of vulnerability related to land use management, management of critical assets, and disaster preparedness, e.g., through information campaigns and community drills. This is to prevent reconstruction in high-risk areas, mitigate risks for existing critical assets, ensure community preparedness, and minimize if not eliminate casualties.

Budgeted with a $3,395,000 allocation from the total grant allocation, this sub-component has the Philippines' Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) as Implementing Agency (IA) with a Consortium of 3 consulting firms - CONCEP / GEOS / ASSURE as Implementing Partner (IP).

Following are the 30 local governments selected by DILG8 as beneficiaries of this intervention:
