Mainstreaming Inclusive Resilience in South Asia

(November 2018 - )

The World Bank's South Asia Disaster Risk Management (DRM) team has commenced a new regional Technical Assistance (TA): Mainstreaming Inclusive Resilience in South Asia to proactively incorporate social inclusion in the existing and new DRM lending portfolio. The objectives of this assignment are: (i) to develop action plans for five pilot projects, that are either new or existing, to better address social inclusion in the project design or implementation stage; and (ii) to design and deliver training workshops that help government counterparts and World Bank Teams, particularly the DRM and Social Development teams, to design more socially inclusive DRM projects.
