1 Mainstreaming of DRR in Development Planning -Tajikistan Case Study Khusrav Sharifov, Manager, Disaster Risk Management Programme, UNDP Tajikistan DIPECHO Regional Conference, Bishkek, November 2009

2 What does DRR mainstreaming mean? Mainstreaming: used to describe the consideration of Disaster Risk Reduction in national (and regional) decision making processes (planning, budgeting, development etc.)

3 Why mainstreaming is necessary? Various findings indicate that poor people (usually rural population) are the most vulnerable to impacts of natural disasters; Local communities are rarely consulted or able to influence decision-making; The main objective of DRR mainstreaming into local planning is to reduce the vulnerability and create resilience at the local/community level.

4 Lack of local human and financial capacities to deal with disasters; Protection of the population and key infrastructure; Ad hoc responses (short-term responses, uncoordinated processes, isolated projects, etc.) are NOT a solution. Why mainstreaming is necessary?

5 Mainstreaming of DRR in Tajikistan: Background information MDG and PRSP documents highlighting decentralization and local capacity building; UNDP project on Building Local Capacity for Planning and Budgeting Project with Ministry of Economic Development and Trade: Overall goal to localize MDG and to strengthen local governmental structures. Piloting development of 15 District Development Plans (DDP); Guidelines for the development of DDPs.

6 What does mainstreaming include? Development of the Section on Disaster risk reduction, prevention and preparedness to natural disasters, which includes: Situation analysis; Sectoral goals and development strategy; Development program and DRM priorities.

7 Achievements to date DRM chapters for seven DDPs developed; Each chapter includes: Overall damage of the district for the last 3 years; Dynamics of damage for the last 3 years; Major types of disasters specific to district and jamoats/villages; Available district disaster response and preparedness structure; Basic disaster risk issues of the district; Disaster reduction recommendations.

8 Mitigation projects in pilot districts based on the joint assessment and identification of priorities; DRM trainings for communities at risk. Achievements to date

9 Actively work with local governments on inclusion of DRR priorities into local planning; Ensure allocation of funds specifically for DRR measures from the local budgets (rather than from center); Use a combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches (legislation at national level, consultations at local level). Conclusions – Next steps
