The operational modality of CDP is based on project cycle management, comprising planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Aligned with the planning cycle of local bodies and pursuant to the 14-step participatory planning process, its key approaches are enhancing the relationship with and strengthening the capacity of the local government bodies (WCF, IPFC, VDC, DDC and other relevant committees at different levels). In conformity with the operational strategy of the LGCDP framework of social mobilisation, monitoring and accountability measures, CDP contributes to improve coherence and minimise duplication by bringing together I/NGOs, civil society, stakeholders and government line agencies. It works with the institutions, mechanisms and service providers from central to grassroots level aiming to contribute to their institutional effectiveness

Following are the major working domains of CDP to provide key interventions through citizen mobilisation, and empowerment, as well as disaster resilient community infrastructure and DRR and climate change preparedness:

  • Strengthening of governance
  • Social mobilisation
  • Livelihood support
  • Disaster resilient basic infrastructures
  • DRR and climate change
  • Promotion of good governance and coherence

Coherence, coordination, harmonisation and enhancing good governance at all levels:

National Level: The line ministries, I/NGOs and private sector are essential aspects of the core of the programme, and liaison with NGO Facility/MoFALD, and consortium partners WFP and OPM. NGO Facility provides with policy framework, facilitates the programme, conducts joint monitoring visits and provides feedback and inputs on implementation, and ensures coordination and complementarities. Likewise, CDP supports the NGO Facility in the relevant areas and provides the foundation for establishing a learning environment for policy and programme implementation.

District Level: The NGO Desk/NGO Coordination Committee is responsible for the overall management and coordination of the programmes, implemented by local NGOs. CDP provides technical support to strengthen this structure and to ensure coherence between non-State and State agencies during planning, implementation and monitoring.

VDC Level: CDP coordinates with the existing VDC level Project Monitoring and Supervision Committee (PMSC). CDP takes a lead role in initiating and activating the WCF formation processes and cultivating the IPFC and WCFs. The public audit, joint monitoring, capacity building, and meaningful participation in IPFC and WCF are emphasised.
