|Description||The TA objective is to assist the Government to enhance the legal and administrative framework for land law including land acquisition and resettlement. The TA will pursue this objective by supporting: (i) preparation and approval of a draft Land Law; (ii) consultation on the draft Land Law in selected regions and with the civil society; (iii) presentation of the draft Land Law to the parliament; (iv) preparation of draft regulations for implementing the proposed Land Law including elaboration of the existing land acquisition and resettlement regulations when required; (v) identification of any other regulations that might be needed to support the proposed Land Law; and (vi) a capacity needs assessment and preparation of a proposal for a capacity building program for follow-up financing.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The proposal for TA complements the Indonesia country program emphasis on improving governance, including legal and judicial reform, building human capital, and, within ADB?s program of assistance, improving aid effectiveness, within the overall context of decentralization. It also complements other country-specific regional initiatives to enhance policy, legal, and administrative frameworks for involuntary resettlement. The TA follows on from a key regional activity, RETA 5935 (2000-2002), in which Indonesia was a participant. The decentralization process under way since 1 January 2001 applies also to land acquisition and resettlement. This will necessitate attention to the planning, financing, approval, implementation, management, and monitoring for land acquisition and resettlement at the regional level if ADB infrastructure projects (and other investment projects) are to proceed without bottlenecks and delays. This requires a careful analysis of the relative roles and responsibilities of the central government compared with the regional governments for land acquisition and resettlement matters. Under decentralization, the central Government retains the right to stipulate the requirements and standards for granting land titles, for land reform, for land administration, land service charges, and the national cadastral basic framework. BPN, the National Land Agency, has responsibility for three major land law revisions, including the Law on Land Acquisition and the Agrarian Law. Regions will make their own regulations on land use and their own arrangements for land registration and other matters, and, it appears, would generally be responsible for land acquisition, compensation and financing. The regions would need assistance to build capacity to plan, budget for and manage land acquisition and resettlement.|
