Capacity Development for DRR
Impact at national and local level
Beatrice Progida, Special Advisor, Knowledge Management for DRR and Climate Services
beatrice.progida@unitar.org
Objectives
1. Explore strengths and weaknesses of current DRR
capacity development endeavors and reflect on
key principles
2. Present UNITAR’s contribution to national and
local capacity development
Part 1. Capacity
Development for DRR- Dos,
don'ts and principles
Based on: “Strategic Research into National
and Local Capacity Building for DRM”, IFRC
2015
AND
substantiated by own experience
1. Capacity Development for DRR-
Outcomes and Impact
Should generate sustained capacity to plan for
and implement DRR (outcome)
so that the risks from disasters to lives and
livelihoods are reduced (impact)
2. What we measure: Outcome vs
Impact
Outcomes: Local DRR structures
Integration of DRR into development plans
Cross-sectoral partnerships
Impact: missing research and evaluation investments
3. Strengths of DRR Capacity
development investments
• Ownership is taken seriously
• Good adaptation to the local context
• Sustainable and innovative
approaches to training
4. Shortfalls of DRR capdev
investments
• Prevention, mitigation and recovery are overlooked
• Limited funding (max 1m USD), scattered and not
strategic. Limited timespan (2 years average)
• The ‘missing middle’ of sub-national investments
• Focus on non-conflict areas
• Limited sync between functional and technical
investments
• Limited focus on vulnerable populations
5. (continued) Shortfalls of DRR capdev
investments
• DRR for present rather than long-term risks
• No sustained investments in mainstreaming
DRR
• No formal sustainability strategies (exit)
• Weak M&E
• Weak gender mainstreaming
• None to incomplete capacity needs
assessments
6. Recommendations for DRR capdev
• Create platforms (system-wide, multi-scale), for networking and South-
South
• Strengthen capacity needs assessment
• Ownership & partnership
• Foster ownership and plan your exit strategy
• Longer-term investments
• Attention to governance
• Balance between present and longer-term risks
• Integrate gender
• Mainstream conflict-sensitivity
• Improve the impact of training
Part 2. New initiative to strengthen
DRR capacity development at national
and sub-national levels
UNITAR K4Resilience hub
1. Why a new initiative
Demand: CADRI requested UNITAR to develop a knowledge hub on DRR
Opportunity: UNITAR is already engaged in DRR through its UN:CC
Learn hub, prep training for Sendai, Preparedness Training for municipalities,
Hiroshima Women’s Leadership in Tsunami-based Disaster Risk Reduction
Training Programme, UNOSAT’s capacity building for the use of GIS in Early
Warning
Mandate: As part of the UN Family, UNITAR is committed to strengthen its
work in support of the COP 21 commitment, the Sendai Framework and the
Agenda 2030. Training and learning are key elements of all these inter-
governmental commitments
2. Rationale
Capacity development for national and local DRR
Transfer of knowledge Transfer of technology
and infrastructure
Advocacy for positive
change
Uncoordinated training initiatives (77)
Space for economies of scale
Lack of expertise in adult learning
Limited facilitation of peer-to-peer
learning
Limited mainstreaming of
knowledge & learning strategies
3. Scope
4. Strategies
5. National
support strategy
Strengthens and
connects knowledge
using critical planning
entry points

Capacity Development for DRR: Impact at National and Local Level

  • 1. Capacity Development for DRR Impact at national and local level Beatrice Progida, Special Advisor, Knowledge Management for DRR and Climate Services beatrice.progida@unitar.org
  • 2. Objectives 1. Explore strengths and weaknesses of current DRR capacity development endeavors and reflect on key principles 2. Present UNITAR’s contribution to national and local capacity development
  • 3. Part 1. Capacity Development for DRR- Dos, don'ts and principles Based on: “Strategic Research into National and Local Capacity Building for DRM”, IFRC 2015 AND substantiated by own experience
  • 4. 1. Capacity Development for DRR- Outcomes and Impact Should generate sustained capacity to plan for and implement DRR (outcome) so that the risks from disasters to lives and livelihoods are reduced (impact)
  • 5. 2. What we measure: Outcome vs Impact Outcomes: Local DRR structures Integration of DRR into development plans Cross-sectoral partnerships Impact: missing research and evaluation investments
  • 6. 3. Strengths of DRR Capacity development investments • Ownership is taken seriously • Good adaptation to the local context • Sustainable and innovative approaches to training
  • 7. 4. Shortfalls of DRR capdev investments • Prevention, mitigation and recovery are overlooked • Limited funding (max 1m USD), scattered and not strategic. Limited timespan (2 years average) • The ‘missing middle’ of sub-national investments • Focus on non-conflict areas • Limited sync between functional and technical investments • Limited focus on vulnerable populations
  • 8. 5. (continued) Shortfalls of DRR capdev investments • DRR for present rather than long-term risks • No sustained investments in mainstreaming DRR • No formal sustainability strategies (exit) • Weak M&E • Weak gender mainstreaming • None to incomplete capacity needs assessments
  • 9. 6. Recommendations for DRR capdev • Create platforms (system-wide, multi-scale), for networking and South- South • Strengthen capacity needs assessment • Ownership & partnership • Foster ownership and plan your exit strategy • Longer-term investments • Attention to governance • Balance between present and longer-term risks • Integrate gender • Mainstream conflict-sensitivity • Improve the impact of training
  • 10. Part 2. New initiative to strengthen DRR capacity development at national and sub-national levels UNITAR K4Resilience hub
  • 11. 1. Why a new initiative Demand: CADRI requested UNITAR to develop a knowledge hub on DRR Opportunity: UNITAR is already engaged in DRR through its UN:CC Learn hub, prep training for Sendai, Preparedness Training for municipalities, Hiroshima Women’s Leadership in Tsunami-based Disaster Risk Reduction Training Programme, UNOSAT’s capacity building for the use of GIS in Early Warning Mandate: As part of the UN Family, UNITAR is committed to strengthen its work in support of the COP 21 commitment, the Sendai Framework and the Agenda 2030. Training and learning are key elements of all these inter- governmental commitments
  • 12. 2. Rationale Capacity development for national and local DRR Transfer of knowledge Transfer of technology and infrastructure Advocacy for positive change Uncoordinated training initiatives (77) Space for economies of scale Lack of expertise in adult learning Limited facilitation of peer-to-peer learning Limited mainstreaming of knowledge & learning strategies
  • 15. 5. National support strategy Strengthens and connects knowledge using critical planning entry points

  1. An effective capacity building initiative is therefore one that produces outputs that contribute to this change. The focus in this research was on investigating process, outputs and the prospects for successful outcomes.
  2. Ownership does not emerge without effort and deliberate design. The research revealed firstly that DRM practitioners are aware of the importance of ownership for DRM capacity-building effectiveness, and secondly that programmes include steps to ensure those targeted for capacity building are centrally involved in its design and implementation. STILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT Several practical steps can be taken to assist implementing agencies in tailoring their programmes to the local situation. In particular, developing an understanding of context is best achieved through building up longterm engagement and relationships in an area. At a community scale, those involved in DRM capacity-building programmes have found that linking with target communities’ everyday lives and livelihoods improves effectiveness. Several programmes revealed that people were much more engaged when livelihoods were used creatively as access points for discussing DRM. Training. For example, ‘training of trainers’ approaches appear to be widely used and can be very effective if coupled with careful selection procedures and rigorous mentoring of new trainers. On-the-job training and the use of secondments can be effective forms of capacity building for DRM also, if there is an environment of co-working and mutual trust. All training should be interactive, contextualized and based on an attitude of mutual learning. Carefully designed and wellimplemented training programmes can therefore contribute to the creation of sustainable functional capacity, particularly from the perspective of the DRM system as a whole.
  3. prevention and mitigation (eight per cent) or recovery (only two per cent). On limited funding: the overall system for building global DRM capacity is not strategic - instead, it is made up of lots of smaller, uncoordinated projects and programmes scattered across countries. There is therefore potential for donors and international agencies to work more closely together on coordinated programmes of system-wide, multi-scale capacity strengthening within and across countries. On missing middle: DRM capacity-building programmes should therefore give attention to how new capacities at one level can dovetail with capacities and processes at both lower and higher levels, e.g., how district plans might link with provincial budgeting processes. Programmes should also be designed to ensure that their activities maximize inter-scalar collaboration. Non-conflict:In several countries, the research found that when active conflict breaks out in an area, DRM capacity-building programmes are typically postponed or alternative locations are identified. This means that people living in areas affected by conflict are often left out of capacity building for DRM initiatives despite their increased vulnerability to disasters. It is important to note that fragile states do not necessarily have weak DRM capacity; but where there is very weak DRM capacity and infrastructure, the researchers found evidence that small steps in improving technical capacity can be regarded as highly significant.
  4. M&E. independent evaluations of DRM capacity-building programmes are rare, with none of the 15 programmes selected for in-depth study being subject to an external evaluation. However, there is an opportunity to improve M&E because the fieldwork uncovered evidence that donor requirements act as a strong incentive for M&E best practice.
  5. Flexibility and adaptability The need to approach capacity-building interventions flexibly, so that the design of the programme is appropriate to context and responsive to needs (rather than applied as an externally-imposed ‘blueprint’). It includes undertaking careful assessment of capacity needs, and working with and reinforcing existing skills, strategies, systems and capacities. It also includes understanding and accounting for the political and power dimensions that can undermine or strengthen capacity building. Comprehensive planning The need to carefully design interventions so that they can meet their objectives and are likely to be sustainable. It includes appropriate scheduling of interventions so that pressure to show visible results does not undermine capacity building. Also critical is planning for the long-term sustainability of capacity gains after the withdrawal of interventions. Comprehensive planning includes a robust system for monitoring and evaluation. Ownership and partnership The need to ensure that those targeted for capacity building have a clear and significant role in the design and implementation of initiatives (which will again help to ensure they are appropriate, effective and sustainable). Ownership is likely to rest on active participation, clear statements of responsibilities, engagement of leaders, and alignment with existing DRM and DRR strategies. Attention to functional capacity The need to focus on ‘functional’ capacity building. This means doing more than improving technical skills and resources. It means developing the ability of stakeholders and organizations to take effective decisions and actions on DRM. It includes aspects such as improving coordination, and developing policies and plans. It also includes creating an enabling environment for effective decisions and actions, such as developing incentives for good staff performance, and building support among stakeholders to see DRM as a priority issue. Integration of actors and scales The need to build capacity to coordinate across scales and to work with other stakeholders. Capacity building can act to bridge capacity and communication gaps that commonly exist between national and local levels. Initiatives can focus on building capacity of networks of stakeholders, and on building local people’s capacity to interact with other stakeholders. Contribution to disaster risk reduction The need for a more holistic DRR-influenced approach to DRM capacity. This includes attention to: understanding and planning for long-term changes in risk; moving beyond a focus on short-term emergency management to capacity in disaster prevention, mitigation and long-term recovery; prioritizing the reduction of vulnerability; targeting the needs of vulnerable groups; and addressing gender inequalities in both vulnerability and capacity.
