|Description||ADB and the Government of India are working together to make irrigation systems in the state of Odisha more productive, efficient and sustainable. The Orissa Integrated Irrigated Agriculture and Water Management Investment Program is improving irrigation systems in four northern river basins and a part of the Mahanadi River Delta in Odisha state. The program is renovating and extending irrigation systems; helping to form community water user associations that help manage local water resources; and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of government agencies that deal with water issues in the state. About 1.7 million people are benefiting from the program through the improvement of irrigation systems that serve 215,000 hectares of farm land. The reliable water supply obtained from improved irrigation systems is increasing the outputs of farmers; creating jobs in agriculture; improving nutrition; increasing incomes; and lowering poverty.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Despite India''s rapid overall economic growth, agricultural development has been stagnant. Farmers in India are making a slow transformation to more intensive and high-value production and processing systems. Bottlenecks in water resources are also increasingly seen as a major constraint to economic growth in the country. In this context, irrigation is drawing major attention because it accounts for 84% of total water use. Irrigation is crucial for agriculture and rural growth, but much of the existing irrigation infrastructure is inefficient and underutilized. This is particularly true in Odisha, one of the poorest states in India. Agriculture is the backbone of the state economy and is key to reducing rural poverty. Improving irrigation infrastructure is an effective method of supporting agriculture and thereby reducing poverty in the state.|
|Impact||economic growth, including agricultural growth, in Odisha is sustainable, broad-based and more inclusive (12th Five-Year Plan: 2012-2017).|
|Description of Outcome||productivity of agriculture in selected river basins in Odisha increased.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||The Loan closed on 17 September 2018, financial closure under process. Balance works beyond loan closure will be completed by the State through its own resources.|
|Description of Project Outputs||
Water resources and irrigation management of state and water user institutions strengthened
Irrigation system and associated infrastructure modernized and managed.
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||
The state confirmed during MTR Mission that less likelihood of any tangible outcomes on IWRM under the remaining period, and reduction of this component from the project scope.
Pani Panchayat Act and Rules were refined with amendments in 2008 and 2014 and DOWR refined its vision and strategy and established a PIMCAD Directorate.
Reducing the PP numbers from 169 to 138 WUAs. Currently 110 PPs elected (achieved 80%).
The Scope of work reduced on for O&M plans from 169 to 138 O&M plans as MCII CAD works are dropped.
Gender targets are being met.
Implementation is underway for all the 7 irrigation systems. Works on about 71 CW contracts has been completed and the remaining 47 CWs contracts are under different stages of completion. The State has committed to complete the balance works through its own resources.
Modernization of irrigation infrastructure on 4 major and 3 medium subprojects to improve 108,091 ha of irrigated area may be partially achieved as CAD works for MCII subprojects dropped from the project,
Asset management plans prepared and being implemented for 6 irrigation system, excepting MCII subproject. Pani Panchayat (PP) microplans are prepared by WALMI and are at approval stage with the government.
Scope revised from 57 km to 46.4 km due to restrictions from CRZ regulation.
Scope for about 750 MLI schemes has been reduced from the project.
Loan closed on 17 September 2018. Financial closure in the process.

|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||It comprises irrigation system modernization, WUA strengthening, and rehabilitation of embankments. Initial environmental examinations have been prepared for all subprojects and an environmental assessment and review framework prepared for the MFF. Environmental impacts are positive, including improved water availability, water use efficiency, and increased agricultural production. Institutional strengthening for IWRM will deliver further benefits through river basin management. Potential negative impacts include deterioration of water quality due to agriculture intensification and impacts during construction of infrastructure. These are mitigated by introducing integrated pest management and effective soil nutrient management and ensuring safe and environmentally sound construction with environmental monitoring (sampling and reporting) to the PIM-CAD Directorate. During the safeguards review conducted in May 2018, a revised time-bound corrective action plan has been agreed to by the executing agency to achieve compliance with the environmental regulations of India pertaining to the environmental clearance for the earth from borrow areas used in the project activities.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||DOWR prepared RPs for Macchagaon, Pattamundai (0-37 km and 37-80km), Mahanadi Chitropola Island subproject, and HLC Range-1 (0-10 km and 10-53km) subprojects in 2014. All RPs were disclosed in accordance with the SPS and PCP, and meaningful consultation and information disclosure were conducted with the affected people. The RP and corrective action plan implementation for Macchagaon, Pattamundai, HLC Range-1 (km10-41) and Mahanadi Chitropola Island subprojects have been completed. In Mahanadi Chitropola Island subproject, land compensation for some APs has been deposited with the civil court by the district administration in accordance with the legal provisions as the APs failed to collect the compensation amount after the notifications. Safeguards reporting from the PMU to ADB is being submitted on a semi-annual basis. A time-bound action plan has been agreed to by the executing agency to complete the RP implementations and update the RPs.|
|Indigenous Peoples||Odisha has a relatively high indigenous population (22%) compared with other states. There are IP populations of 79.3%, 45.4% and 52% in the Project 2 medium irrigation subprojects of Kansbahal, Kanjhari and Ramial, respectively. The scheduled tribe households are culturally and economically integrated into the mainstream population, and the subprojects will not cause any differential impacts on these communities. These communities will benefit from their participation through WUAs and will gain better access to on and off-farm employment opportunities through grant financing. Project 1 has demonstrated that there is a high representation of IPs in WUAs and they have been included in decision making. Investment program has an approved IP development framework and the IPs to benefit from the positive impacts of subproject development through inclusion in the WUA, livelihoods activities and availability of water for irrigation.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||A participatory process was used during the preparation of the investment program. Consultations were carried out with women, the landless, scheduled tribes & other vulnerable groups in the subproject areas using participatory rapid rural appraisal techniques. An inventory of local needs was prepared, covering problems/ constraints on (i) water resources in relation to agriculture, fisheries, transport, environment, & other uses; (ii) possible solutions to resolve the constraints identified including their positive & negative impact on various local interest groups; (iii) implications of solutions for poverty reduction; & (iv) prioritizing water resources needs compared with other development needs. The role of service providers, people s willingness to contribute to O&M, & the scope of enhancing impacts of water interventions with others such as micro credit, & extension services were also discussed. Non-government organizations were engaged to facilitate this process. This process identified the future actions to institutionalize community participation in the expected implementation areas.|
|During Project Implementation||Farmer beneficiaries are involved at each stage of subproject planning and implementation and take the lead role in command area development and sub-minor canal construction works. Detailed micro-plans are prepared by each WUAs, covering agriculture, livelihood enhancement, organizational development, and O&M and water management. Women and other vulnerable groups receive support to ensure their meaningful participation in all subproject activities.|
