Utilizing executing and implementing agencies with prior experience of ADB-assisted projects, helps strengthen the support for an emergency assistance project. Their experience with the established procedures could facilitate preparatory activities for an emergency assistance. For instance, competent technical staff from these agencies could be readily mobilized and rapidly deployed during the conduct of disaster project reconnaissance and preparation missions. Moreover, tapping the expertise of these agencies with experienced personnel on the ground helps in expediting the implementation of an emergency assistance. As such, these agencies could be contributory factors in ensuring the success of emergency assistance projects.
