Impact, Outcome and outputs of project
• The impact of the project is to improve national capacity to manage
disaster risks in Cambodia
• Expected outcome of the project is to improve policy and institutional
capacity for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Cambodia.
• Main outputs of the project are:
Policy environment for effective DRM established and strengthened
Institutional capacity of DRM structure at the national level improved
Institutional capacity of DRM structure at the provincial level improved
Effective TA management
Output 1: Policy environment for effective disaster risk
management established and strengthened.
• Objective: to ensure the country has a unified strategy for DRM that is
mainstreamed throughout the different sectors.
• Activities:
Drafting, consulting, and finalizing relevant DRM policies, strategies, and priorities,
taking into account gender concerns, for approval by the Council of Ministers;
Assigning and training DRM focal points from line ministries and working with them
to incorporate DRR actions into sector plans;
Organizing high-level dialogue with line ministries to incorporate DRR activities into
the midterm review of the National Strategic Development Plan (2014–2018) to
provide strategic direction for all DRR stakeholders; and
Preparing and adopting support policies such as standard operating procedures on
DRM and national guidelines for integrating DRR into the subnational planning
Output 2:Institutional capacity of disaster risk
management structure at the national level improved.
• Objective: to build the DRM technical capacity and gender analysis skill of
the NCDMS staff and sector focal points to perform DRM functions
effectively through a series of capacity-building activities on technical
aspects of DRM.
• Activities
Needs assessment and training of NCDM staff and sector focal points;
Review of the roles and functions of NCDMS staff, assessing the possibility for
establishing policy and planning and disaster management information system
Developing standardized tools, guidelines, and protocols; and
Establishing a training pool for all technical aspects of DRM and gender
specialization with qualified NCDM and other line ministry staff.
Output 3: Institutional capacity of disaster risk
management structure at the provincial level improved.
• Objective: to build capacity for DRM at the subnational level to identify
risk; analyze gender issues; prioritize and implement risk reduction
• Activities
Establishment of the PCDMs,
Contingency planning formation and training of provincial disaster response teams
on gender inclusive DRM,
Establishment and capacity building for a subnational disaster management
information system, and
Contingency planning and regular coordination of preparedness and disaster
response activities.
Output 4: Effective technical assistance management.
• Objective: to ensure that the project will be completed in a timely manner
within the specified budget, with best gender responsive practices and
innovative approaches documented for replication and rolled out to other
• Activities
Timely assigning the counterpart staff for the implementation of the TA activities with
women staff represent at least 30% of the total counterpart staff,
Reviewing the availability of information and identifying the venues for documentation and
Raising public awareness on DRM,
Collecting and sharing information on traditional and/or indigenous DRR practices, and
Monitoring and reporting of progress regarding national DRM priorities.
Project progress
• Inception workshop was organized in December 2014 in Battambang to provide project briefing
to the subnational levels
• One year protracted delay in the implementation due to the delays of recruitment of

Impact, Outcome and outputs of project
• Impact: To reduce the negative impact of floods and other disasters on the most
vulnerable communities in Cambodia
• Outcome: To Improve disaster management and response capacity at the district
and commune level to address natural disasters
• 4 Main Outputs:
Institutional and technical capacity of priority districts on DRR and Disaster management
Capacity of target communes for DRR, climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster
management enhanced
Community-based DRR and CCA activities implemented (Investment Fund)
Effective project management and dissemination of best practices and innovative
Output 1: Improved Institutional and Technical Capacity of Priority
Districts on Disaster Management and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), and
Climate Change Adaptation (CCA).
• Objective: To develop the institutional and technical capacity of 18 priority districts from
