Indonesia: Integrated Citarum Water Resources Management Investment Program
The government of Indonesia wanted to improve land and water management in the Citarum River Basin, and requested assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to develop a long-term integrated water resources management (IWRM) investment program as part of its strategic road map. In December 2008, ADB approved a multitranche financing facility (MFF) for the Integrated Citarum Water Resources Management Investment Program to support the implementation of the IWRM road map in the basin. A periodic financing request was formulated to implement priority activities from the road map. ADB also funded a project preparatory technical assistance in 2005 to help develop the 15-year road map or strategic investment plan for IWRM in the basin consisting of interventions to achieve an integrated river basin management, with estimated cost of $3.5 billion.
This report validates the completion report's assessment of the program. IED overall assessment: Less than successful (Tranche 1) and unsuccessful (MFF).
