1. Partially achieved, as only basin transfer facilities and Tan Bien main canal so far put into operation. Construction of Duc Hoa main canal expected to be completed by end of 2014 or early 2015.
Contractor did not hand over an O&M Manual for Phuoc Hoa Headworks.
In late 2009, BVI Consultants drafted a 9-part Sustainable Systems Management (SSM) Plan, of which Parts 1-8 were sent to the members of the TF (including IMC representatives in the TF) on 5 February 2010 for comment. During 2010, the SSM Plan was systematically updated and improved and Parts 1, 2 & 3 of the SSM Plan were sent to ICMB9 in June 2011 for review, but no further action was taken.
The whole SMP has not been implemented, as proposed by BVI Consultants, because further consulting services, equipment and funding were needed, which were not then available, and it is now envisaged by ICMB9 as a long-term goal towards which progress may be steadily made, year by year.
A proposal from SIWRR to AFD for O&M Regulations and Management Model for Dau Tieng Phuoc Hoa Water Resources System is under preparation.
Construction of primary, secondary and tertiary canals (NCB contracts) expected to be completed between December 2014 and April 2015.
2. Partly achieved. By April 2014, 86 Tertiary Units (TU) had been established in Tan Bien ISP and 120 TUs in Duc Hoa ISP, and some WUGs were formed, but they are not effective yet. A TU is a unit of command area that abstracts water from a tertiary canal.
The target of 50% of farmers adopting crop diversification by 2016 is rather ambitious. For example, in Duc Hoa, Winter-Spring season, farmers grow rice 44%, corn 16%, and peanuts 35.8%. The only high value crops grown are vegetables, 2%, and a few farmers have invested in flowers and orchids.
Therefore, the target percentage of diversified and higher valued crops is unlikely to increase to 50% within the next few years, even if additional water were available now.
3. Partly achieved but with 1-year delay. By April 2014, 7,611 AHs had been resettled and compensated without livelihoods loss.
Compensation to all AHs was fully paid by March 2014.
Social Support for AHs expected to be completed by 2017, funded by the AFD loan. Social Support includes 3 or 4 year term school scholarship credit programs.
4. Partly achieved. Implementation of the EMP is on-going.
Package OP1 proposed to be carried forward into the 2015-2017 period to cover the remaining Phase 2 construction activities.
Package OP2 to be carried forward to cover post-construction operation of Long An Water Supply Station during the remainder of Phase 2 up to 2017.
5. Fully achieved, but with delay of five months, as construction of the Phuoc Hoa barrage and transfer canal was completed in December 2011.
6. In the PAM (2004) an additional 48,130 ha of land were to be receive stable irrigation supplies by 2011.
In September 2008 the area was reduced to 29,980 ha (MARD Decision 2851), mostly by cancelling Binh Long ISP.
In December 2010 (MARD Decision 3415), the area was reduced to 20,545 ha (Tan Bien 6,725 ha and Duc Hoa 13,821 ha), with an allowance of 900 ha for Thai My irrigation area.
In MARD Decision 3184 (Dec.2012), the area was further reduced to 16,588 ha (TB 6,408 ha and DH 10,180 ha).
Reductions were due to urbanisation, avoiding acid sulphate soils, and conversion of rice land to rubber plantations. An additional 900 ha in Thai My irrigation area (within Duc Hoa ISP) may be included during 2015-2017, if funds are available.
On-farm canal networks to be constructed from 2015 onwards by WUGs under guidance of OSDP Consultants and stakeholders, such as IMCs / IMEs / ISs, funded by AFD loan.
