Indonesia: Integrated Citarum Water Resources Management Investment Program

Evaluation Document | 27 December 2019

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).
