The civil works included in the Project will be limited to rehabilitation and improvements to existing infrastructure, and these shall not involve resettlement of people, relocation of houses, or land acquisition.
The Project will proactively include indigenous people among its beneficiaries. Because the Project will not involve negative impacts and will be fully based on community-driven development principles, compliance with the ADB policy on indigenous peoples will be de facto ensured by the main design and implementation mechanisms. Nonetheless, the selection criteria for infrastructure include provisions to ensure that indigenous people and other vulnerable groups are part of the capacity building, planning, implementation, and post-implementation processes, as well as that they will benefit proportionally from the improved access to rural infrastructure, the training, and construction-related employment opportunities.
All schemes selected under the Project at the village level will undergo rigorous technical and social evaluation prior to actual project approval and implementation. By using environmental screening criteria specified in the environmental assessment framework, only those schemes having no or very minimal environmental impacts will be selected.

|The Project's long term objective is to improve welfare of the rural communities, and the immediate objective is to improve access of poor and near poor in the rural areas to basic rural infrastructure.|
The Government's National Poverty Reduction Strategy identifies lack of basic infrastructure in the rural areas as an underlying cause of poverty, and the Medium Term Development Plan 2004-2009 (MTDP) identifies investing into rural infrastructure as a key action for reducing poverty. The MTDP identifies investment needs of about $145 billion in infrastructure necessary to maintain a sustained GDP growth rate of 6% and for making steady progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) during the planned period. Of these, public sector requirements are estimated at about $25 billion for infrastructure, such as that for rural areas, that is traditionally unattractive for the private sector. However, investments in infrastructure have seen drastic decline from about $16 billion in 1996 to $3 billion in 2001 and to $1.5 billion in 2002.
The urgency of investments in rural infrastructure has further risen with the Government's ambitious plan to reduce fuel subsidies. The direct impact on the poor and near poor of, for example, a recent 186% rise in the price of kerosene is potentially substantial. Impacts resulting from higher transportation and energy costs will raise the general inflation levels. The direct and indirect impacts could further aggravate poverty levels and may lead to slippages in progress towards attaining MDGs. To mitigate these impacts and aid the poor and near poor, the Government has adopted a number of measures, including the rural infrastructure component of the PKPS-BBM, to provide basic infrastructure to rural communities. On account of resource constraints, the coverage of the PKPS-BBM in 2005 is limited to about 12,800 (about 20%) of the villages in Indonesia, which leaves a large unserved rural population. In 2006, the PKPS-BBM targets an additional 9,000 villages. The Project will support expansion of the Government program in an additional 1,800 villages with high incidences of poverty and poor rural infrastructure. That will raise the overall Program coverage to 23,600 villages.

An estimated 1,212 person months of consulting services, comprising 12 person months of international and 1,200 person months of domestic consultants, will be recruited to assist the Government in implementing the Project. In addition, 4,200 person months of technical support staff and 9,600 person months of village organizers will be recruited to provide social and technical facilitation to the communities. Three person months of international, 18 person months of domestic, and 8 person months of technical support staff will be recruited on individual basis while remaining services be procured through a domestic consulting firm. Consultants will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants using the quality and cost-based system and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB for engaging domestic consultants.
Civil works will be contracted to the communities following ADB's Guidelines on Community Based Procurement.
