- The EU-GCCA funded Climate Change Adaptation Project [CCAP] in the RNR Sector, is currently housed and managed by Project Coordination Unit [PCU], based at CoRRB-Secretariat. The PCU consists of a Project Coordinator, and focal persons from all the Departments and Non-Departmental Agencies, including RDTC Zhemgang.As a prerequisite to the management of all EU funded programs, PCU has prepared the Monitoring Framework [MF] of the CCAP. All stakeholders are therefore requested to use the MF as a guiding document for Planning, Monitoring and Progress Reporting of CCAP activities and Outputs.
The Regional Livestock Development Center (RLDC), Zhemgang organised three days training on TADinfo (Transboundary Animal Disease Information System) usage from 15 -17 January 2015 at RLDC conference hall. The participants comprised of field veterinarians, laboratory technicians and TADinfo focal persons from Dzongkhags and central programs of the East-Central region viz. Bumthang, Trongsa, Zhemgang and Sarpang, through technical support from NCAH Serbithang.
With the mandates of efficient data entry for notifiable disease outbreaks, the TADinfo system has been of immense utility. However, focal persons have not availed appropriate training on the usage and interpretation of existing TADinfo system for some period of time, while some of the competent personnel in database were transferred to other Dzongkhags, creating vacuum. On the other hand, there have been lots of miscommunication and duplication, which needed clear discussion and finalization. Understanding this, the training was conducted solely to solve the aforementioned issues. The training also gained added attention through involvement of DLOs and central programs in aligning the relevant issues for further coordination.
