Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective of the project is to repair of village access roads and community infrastructure in 7 townships (Ha Kha, Htan, Ta Lan, Falam, Tedim, Tonzaang, Mindat, and Matupi) in Chin State. The proposed project has four outputs.

Output 1 – Restored Village Access: Rural roads and bridges will be restored promoting the concept of build-back better to at least the pre-disaster situation to ensure increased resilience to future disasters. The lengths, locations and cost of repair of damaged roads and bridges in the 7 townships targeted under the JFPR will be reviewed and confirmed in consultation between DRD, State officials, community leaders and ADB during project implementation. Subprojects will comprise (i) priority village-to-village and village-to-town roads and bridges for construction using labor-based methods, and (ii) complementary sections of village-to-village and village-to-town roads and bridges using machine-based construction methods. The design process will pay particular attention to drainage and slope stability and protection with improved vegetative cover for prevention of further landslides. Future sustainability of the access improvements will be enhanced by application of locally adapted design criteria and specifications; capacity building for DRD engineers to review plans for infrastructure restoration to optimize resilience for future disaster events; and capacity building for communities on O&M. 36.

Output 2 – Restored Community infrastructure: The project will repair: (i) power systems (mini-hydro and solar) in 25 villages; (ii) village water supplies in 44 villages; and (iii) priority community infrastructure (e.g. restoration of irrigation systems and reclaiming farmland) funded from cost savings and contingences were available. Future sustainability of community infrastructure will be enhanced by application of locally adapted design criteria and specifications; capacity building for DRD engineers to review plans for infrastructure restoration to optimize resilience for future disaster events; and capacity building for communities on O&M. 37.

Output 3 – Community disaster risk management capacity strengthened: The JFPR will support a process of capacity building based on recent experience and draw on regional and international best practice for community based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR). This process will include strengthening disaster risk management systems at state, township, village tract and village level using disaster risk information in preparing respective disaster management plans at all levels and strengthening their linkages with development planning processes; and capacity building of state and local government officials, civil society organizations and communities in identifying risk, prioritizing risk reduction measures and implementing non-structural measures to strengthen disaster resilience. 38.

Output 4 – Project management capacity strengthened: Consultants will be engaged to provide capacity to the DRD Grant Management Unit (GMU) at the Union level to plan, manage, supervise and report on JFPR progress during project implementation. DRD management capacity at the State and township level will be strengthened through the management support provided by a project management and implementation contractor for Outputs 1 and 2.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation
Office Bldg No. 15, Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar
Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries, and Rural Development
Office No. 36 Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
