RE BUILDING VILLAGES IN 30 DAYS BY PETER ROBERTS
PRESENTATION OUTLINE Challenges Summary of Oxfam Shelter What we are doing What we learning Where we can do better Workshop in September
TOP CHALLENGES WE FACE… Coordination – (External) Technical Design, Program decisions – (Internal) Obtaining Donor Money – (External) Unable to follow the Cluster Shelter Strategy – (Internal) Up to date damage information for intervention – (most affected) – (Internal) Skilled Shelter staff – (Internal) Areas for intervention – (External) Land rights – (External) Cash Flow – (Internal) Material supply and management – (Internal) Capacity building– (Internal) Skilled labour (masons) – (External)
SUMMARY OF THE OXFAM SHELTER PROGRAM
1 year after the floods most people are still living under canvas, low quality open shelter or dangerous unrepaired damaged buildings People are resilient and survive, but their coping capacity is to bounce back is very low. Increased mortality rates and sickness in children under 5 in non reconstructed villages
OXFAM SHELTER COMMITMENT Location Sindh Dadu (500 tbc) = 1400 Jamshoro + Thata = 750 Total = 2150 Todays presentation is with the work of implementing partner RDF in Dadu “Research and Development Foundation” RDF's vision is of an equitable and eco friendly world
VILLAGE APPROACH Also supported with: Water – Hand pumps Hygiene Promotion Latrines Hygiene Promotion Livelihood programs Poultry distribution Cash for Work Agricultural inputs Shelter Wash Food Security / Livelihood
STATUS 129 Community/ RDF 270 Completed 268 Community /Contractor 900 House Batch 233 Community /RDF Start 15 June Finish 20 August
Add at least 3 ventilations Add Kitchen shelves

THE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS In Detail…..
THE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS BY VILLAGE In Summary 5 days 25 days 5 days TOTAL 35 Days
STRENGTHS Community solidarity strengthen led to Community driven Development plans led to Community driven infrastructure rebuilding led to community resilience more focus on gender equality Housing… led to secure safe private space led to hygiene improvements led to a space to develop further
WEAKNESSES Flexibility – in the size of the house Not following the tranche cluster strategy Not working in areas with land rights Issues Potential conflict with larger cost and lower cost programs Material intervention of CSEB difficult to implement.
OPPORTUNITIES Community mobilisation for community infrastructure for schools for Mosque for hygiene programs for health clinics and programs
LEARNING Standardisation of the design Mobilisation of the community Speed – deliver what you say to the village Level of Approach – Village, not house Contained areas of work Preparedness against bottlenecks Finance Human Resources Material logistics Position closer to field location
LEARNING CONT.… Involve and build relationships with the contractors Monitoring and Quality control Define roles and responsibility Use of drop box Team formation Keep all your work in a contained area. It makes logistics and mutual support easier. Regular Learning Reviews
DON’T RUSH IN!!! So you have carried out a pilot. Did you learn from it? The Design – standardised? The Team Structure The community impact The Processes made into SOP’s. Adjusted the budget based on pilot? Learn, Learn, LEARN!!!!!!
SO NOW YOU WANT TO SCALE UP… Make your life easier by. Scale up your team from Pilot to Operational size before you go to the first village. Spend time capacity building the team Find the contractors before the assessments Keep all your work in a contained area. It makes logistics and mutual support easier.
BEFORE YOU GO INTO THE FIRST VILLAGE… Have you got all the forms ready? Did you test them. Have you got a clear process? Are you ready to follow up with construction soon after assessment?
WORKSHOP Aimed at: The Shelter Managers The Engineers The Social Mobilisers DATE - TBC – 12 – 17 September If interested: Day 1Day 2 MorningField VisitExercise Change and adapt AfternoonBy group – SWOT analysis Discussion - Review
REQUEST TO ERHWG Re-awaken the “design comparison review.” Comparison of designs and modality of implementation to be a constructive feedback and lessons learnt to visit and assess other NGO’s sites. Report rate of progress (Number of shelters delivered / Number of Implementing Partners / No of months working) Bring other NGO’s in to shelter Do no Harm and Build back better
