UNDP is developing a programme aimed at supporting the empowerment and capacity development of local CBO’s, women and communities to participate in reconstruction. By investing in grassroots capacities, UNDP will enable affected communities to address both their immediate and longer-term needs and social/economic vulnerabilities, thus building community resilience that would safeguard them against future disasters as well.

The programme will support capacity development that includes the enhancing of management skills, provision of administrative support, infrastructure such as information resource centres and support to build community leadership and outreach. The objective is to empower CBO’s to move from an ad hoc sub-contractual relationship with development partners to a genuine partnership.
