Technical Assistance for the Management of Earthquake Early Recovery (TAMEER)

To implement ERRA strategies effectively in these sectors, technical and management assistance support was provided both at ERRA, as well as at subsidiary levels. The project aimed to support ERRA so that it had the capacity to: a) define its organizational structure, needs for expertise and standard operating procedures; b) prepare resettlement and development plans, and establish systems for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of those plans; and c) establish central coordination mechanisms among the Government, international community and civil society. In addition, TAMEER sought to develop ERRA’s skills and specific capacities, especially in the following areas: environmental issues, programme coordination, social protection coordination, disaster risk reduction (DRR), urban planning/reconstruction, resource mobilization, donor-NGO coordination and coordinated dissemination of information through the media.
