Mapping complementarity and coordination between the World Bank, the European Union and the UN System

The European Union, The World Bank and the UN System have a desire to have a consolidated overview of the different analysis and assessment exercises that are unfolding within the three institutions. One important step to this effect is aligning and comparing the damage and needs assessment work to ensure that all resources are brought to bear in an eventual post-agreement response. Concord Consulting is helping the institutions in analysing how the different agencies’ assessments of the damage and needs overlap, complement and contradict each other, as well as identifying what knowledge-gaps must be addressed as preparation for a potential Recovery and Peace Building Assessment following an agreement. This is done through a careful and structured comparing of documents and the used methodologies, findings and assessments.
