1. Recommendation:

Recommendation 1: UNDP to assist DDM in mobilizing resources necessary for rolling out a systematic capacity building strategy of key regional authorities ( DDM, Disaster Management Committees, flood control department, fire services) specifically with regard to dissemination and implementation of EPRP and Earthquake Resilience Strategy

Key actions:

1. In coordination with the DRRWG, identify key agencies in the earthquakeprone regions and conduct coordinated assessments of core capacity needs tailored to each region.

2. Develop a minimum action plan for core capacity development (focused on earthquake preparedness and response) in consultation with the relevant agencies and explore resource mobilisation for this.

3. Strengthen DDM’s capacity in the regions to coordinate a multi-agency approach to earthquake preparedness, working closely with the GAD.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/12/09] [Last Updated: 2020/11/14]

UNDP is actively pursuing partnerships and resource mobilization opportunities, including with the private sector. Its leadership in the DRRWG enables effective coordination of DRR related activities promoting synergy and better targeting of resources, and a common approach for strengthening preparedness, response and recovery.

2. Recommendation:

Recommendation 2: With strengthened presence and role of DDM reinforced in the regions, work towards developing a coherent communication strategy involving all relevant agencies to facilitate community based disaster preparedness taking a multi-hazard approach.

Key actions:

1. Linking with recommendation 1 above, earthquake-related messages on preparedness need to be nuanced with preparedness for other common disasters like floods, high winds, fire, landslides, etc., which occur at more regular intervals.

2. The emphasis of all community-based preparedness and awareness needs to be laid on disaster risk management and a culture of safety at household and community levels.
