2. Office/Unit/Project Description:
The Initiation Plan for “Capacity Development of Local Governments for Resilient Infrastructure and Livelihood Services (CDRIL)” aims to learn from experience of strengthening capacity of selected local governments of Karnali province to plan, execute and manage resilient and sustainable local infrastructure and livelihood services implemented as a pilot. The Initiation Plan will support the local governments to identify capacity gaps in terms of system, tools, instruments, knowledge and skills required for resilient planning, budgeting, procurement, execution, monitoring, reporting, resource mobilization, partnership, quality assurance and asset management; and build capacities for management of infrastructure projects and delivery of sustainable livelihood services. While doing so, a comprehensive package of capacity development support to the local governments, service providers and other stakeholders will be developed and tested with focus on empowering poor and excluded groups, women and people with disability for their meaningful participation in project selection and benefit sharing. The package of support, among others, will also include building technical capacities for conserving and regenerating the local environment, minimizing social and environmental impacts, promoting nature-based solutions and making sustainable use of resources complementing green recovery. The IP will further support improved coordination between the province and Palikas for strategic planning and investment to enhance overall resilience of communities. The lessons from the pilot will be documented, shared and disseminated with the government and other partners for replication and scaling up across other provinces and Palikas for delivering integrated resilient infrastructure and livelihood services.
The Project Coordinator will be responsible for the implementation of the work plans, ensure the achievement of project results, manage resources as well as coordination with stakeholders for better synergy and greater development impact.
