Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs
Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Status of the safeguards output is as follows: (i) equivalence assessment for both for involuntary resettlement and environment safeguards is completed and draft reports have been prepared; (ii) draft recommendations to mitigate gaps in the equivalence assessment have been prepared for further consultations; and (iii) the acceptability assessment case studies in four projects (energy, water resources, urban planning, and transport sectors) have been carried out, and the draft report is being prepared.

Status of the procurement output is as follows: (i) recommendation for improvement of NCB Annexes is completed; (ii) drafts for SBD NCB are completed and discussed with LKPP; (iii) final draft of SBD ICB for Works is completed and being submitted to ADB for approval; and (iv) SBD for Plant (NCB and ICB) is being drafted and discussed with LKPP.

The first draft of the operation manual has been produced, as a result of several Focus Group Discussions with the relevant stakeholder. ADB has mobilized resource persons to improve the draft manual and prepare action plan for finalization of this output. Subsequently, individual consultants were recruited to prepare and finalize the subsequent manuals. The new consultants are expected to be fully mobilized in the second week of April 2016. The readiness criteria manuals prepared by the new consultants will ensure the following aspects are met: (i) integration of procurement and safeguard aspects; (ii) alignment to the existing ADB policies and procedures and GOI regulations (e.g. in BAPPENAS Ministerial Decree No. 4/2011); and (iii) Clear alignment aspects between ADB and BAPPENAS project processing procedure, including: required documentation, timeline, etc.

Capacity development aspect is integrated as a part of the major aspects in the project (project readiness, procurement, and safeguard). The implementation for all outputs is ongoing.
