Following the approval of the knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) on Building Disaster-Resilient Infrastructure through Enhanced Knowledge, the ADB has engaged the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to deliver Output 3 “resilient recovery capacity enhanced”. This Output complements actions implemented under Output 1 and Output 2 of the Technical Assistance (TA), which seeks to strengthen action-oriented disaster risk management knowledge for disaster-resilient infrastructure in Armenia, Cambodia, Fiji and Sri Lanka, four Developing Member Countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The grant fund for the project “resilient recovery capacity enhanced” was received from the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction financed by the Government of Japan through the Asian Development Bank.
Output 3 will strengthen capacity in Armenia, Cambodia, Fiji and Sri Lanka, to ensure that appropriate disaster-resilient measures are defined and can be applied into pre and post-disaster planning for recovery efforts. The activities under this project will concentrate on supporting post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA)  training to government officials, focusing on infrastructure-related sectors, the utilization of contingency and recovery tools and plans, improved financial preparedness planning to help cover the additional costs of building back better, and effective post-disaster budget execution capabilities.
For the implementation of Output 3 UNDP will undertake the following tasks:
The project officially started in January 2021 and will be implemented over a period of about two years by the UNDP Country Offices in coordination with the ADB resident missions and national relevant stakeholders in each country.
In the context of the implementation of the tasks described above, the purpose of this assignment is to provide technical inputs to the Governments of Armenia on developing comprehensive country-specific disaster recovery (DRF) and Post Disaster Need Assessment (PDNA) educational module for Volume A and selected sectors from Volume B (Housing, DRR and Community Infrastructure sectors). This assignment will complement actions undertaken to formulate a Housing and Infrastructure sector-specific disaster recovery plan in Armenia.
The development of this assignment will require the engagement of relevant national institutions, such as the Ministry of Emergency Situations, Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructures, State Cadastre Committee, Urban development Committee, DRR National platform and Crisis Management State Academy etc. involved in this initiative. The engagement of these actors in the development of a DRF and PDNA training module will be key to the formulation of practical and feasible educational materials to address the challenges involved in the design and application of the DRF and PDNA assessment to strengthen pre-disaster preparation for recovery and post-disaster recovery capacities.
 PDNA is an internationally accepted methodology for determining the physical damages, economic losses, and costs of meeting recovery needs after a disaster triggered by a natural hazard through a government-led process.
