Project Outcome

Description of Outcome
Progress Toward Outcome

Twelve FWUCs were established and operational by project completion, and MOWRAM capacity to adopt IWRM was mainly delivered through Apex water committees. For the developing and managing irrigation infrastructure component, all planned river basin studies were completed, and 12 subprojects were rehabilitated by project completion although the gross command area of these was only 10,761 ha, compared to the original target of 16,000ha (plus recession areas of 19,000 ha). IMT agreements between the FWUCs and MOWRAM were in place by completion, and the FWUCs had prepared operational plans and budgets, although only one of them had successfully applied for the O&M subsidy from MOWRAM. Regarding the development of irrigated agriculture, provincial and district staff members had been trained in improved rice and livestock activities and over 10,000 farmers training days had been delivered. While there was evidence of significantly improved rice yields from the demonstration plots at completion, the FWUCs themselves were not institutionally established as vehicles for farmer lead extension by 2012, and the extent of diversification and intensified agricultural activities on farmers' plots was uncertain (and likely modest).

Draft PCR has been sent for the EA's review and comments.

About 68% of the planned irrigation areas have been achieved by the end of the project partly due to the sharp increase in cost of construction material and labour in 2008 and also to availability of suitable areas for development.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The AFD grant will finance approximately 366 person-months of consulting services (133 international and 233 domestic), in the fields of project management, institutional and water policy development, legal aspects, regulation on irrigation management transfer, resettlement and land management, hydrology and river basin development, water resources management, irrigation design engineering and construction supervision, environmental management, project performance monitoring and evaluation, agriculture extension, training, community development and water user formation, and rural credit. Consultants to be financed by the AFD grant will be engaged in accordance with AFD's procedures, with ADB's endorsement of their competence and experience. ADB will finance consulting services to carry out specific activities related to surveys and studies, preparation of detailed designs, and supervision of construction works. The Project will also contract the services of local institutions and local or international nongovernment organizations for community development, specialized training, and external monitoring of the resettlement activities. All ADB-financed consultants will be selected and engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB for engaging domestic consultants.
Procurement Procurement under the Project will be in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Civil works contracts will be procured through international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures for contracts estimated to cost more than $1,000,000 equivalent, and through local competitive bidding (LCB) procedures for contracts estimated to cost $1,000,000 or less. Vehicles, equipment, and materials will be procured by ICB where the cost is more than $500,000 equivalent, or by international shopping (IS) where the cost is $100,000-$500,000. Small or off-the-shelf goods and materials valued at less than $100,000 may be procured using direct purchase arrangements.
