Indonesia: Flood Management in Selected River Basins Project (Phase II)

Sovereign Project | 35182-022 Status: Closed

Summary

The objective of the TA was to prepare the proposed Flood Management in Selected River Basins Sector Project which will support the Government of Indonesia (the Government) and communities to better manage and mitigate flood risks. The project aims to shift from project-oriented flood control centered around structural measures, to programmatic flood risk management (FRM) that provides a well-balanced mix of non-physical interventions, institutional and capacity building and structural works to mitigate the negative impacts of floods. The project will address the following concerns: (i) strengthening of watershed conservation activities; (ii) providing public information on flood risks for flood plain management; (iii) improving conveyance of the river for reduction of flood peak; (iv) strengthening community's preparedness for emergency flood management; and (v) improving capacity of the government in the flood sector.

Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Preparation of the MFF will be undertaken in three phases as follows:

Phase I TA Studies (October 2009 - January 2010): will prepare the initial Roadmap and will be co-led by the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) and the Directorate General of Water Resources (DGWR), in consultation with the TWG. The outputs of the first phase of the TA studies will be: (a) a national flood management sector assessment to determine the sector development needs; (b) a problem tree analysis to identify the key issues in the management of floods; and (iii) a multi-stakeholder driven, long-term Sector Roadmap and indicative Investment Program suitable for ADB MFF funding for flood management in selected river basins in Java.

Phase II TA Studies (February 2010 - September 2010): The outputs of the second phase will be: (i) formulation the MFF interventions and refinement of the Roadmap and (ii) detailed preparation of the first tranche activities under the MFF.

Phase III TA Studies (October 2010 - March 2011): ADB will engage individual specialists to assist DGWR and BAPPENAS with the preparation and finalization of documentation for ADB and GOI approval of the MFF and to assist the Government to ensure that project readiness criteria are met.
