Description The program will support the Government of Indonesia in implementing its irrigation improvement program (IIP), 2015 2025, which advances the overarching agenda of food security and rural poverty reduction through increased and improved water delivery. The focus of the ADB support will be on improving irrigation system operation, maintenance, and water delivery to farmers. The program will finance a time slice of the government's IIP in 74 districts across 16 provinces from 2017 to 2021. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is providing parallel financing to the Ministry of Agriculture for improved delivery of agricultural services to maximize the benefits of the irrigation improvements.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The program is aligned with the government's long-term National Development Plan, 2005-2025 and National Medium-Term Development Plan, 2015-2019, in which water and food security are priorities. To meet these national goals, the irrigation improvement program calls for participatory irrigation management, better asset management systems, needs-based budgeting, strengthening of water users associations and water resources agencies, and the rehabilitation of 3.2 million ha of irrigation systems. The program is also aligned with the priorities of ADB's country partnership strategy, 2016-2019 for Indonesia. The Program promotes improved operation and maintenance (O&M) and management. The program is included in ADB's country operations business plan, 2017 -2019 for Indonesia. It is aligned with ADB's Water Operational Plan, 2011-2020 and Operational Plan for Agriculture and Natural Resources, 2015-2020.
Impact Improved rural incomes and livelihoods, and enhanced food security
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Sustainable and more productive irrigated agriculture in 74 districts
Progress Toward Outcome

The program, as of 2019, achieved 99,322 hectare of irrigation schemes for DLI8, of which ADB has validated already 43,767 hectares. The remaining schemes are being verified for completeness of technical supporting documents and safeguards compliance.

Single-logon platform for irrigation asset management information system, irrigation performance index, operationalized by Dec 2019. The system is continuously undergoing improvement, to cover performance measurement, damage assessment, prioritization of work handling, and cost estimation for maintenance and rehabilitation.

Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Systems and institutional capacity for sustainable irrigated agriculture strengthened

Irrigation operation, maintenance, and management improved

Irrigation infrastructure improved

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

Four guidelines updated and disseminated as follows : (i) Social, Economic, Technical and Institutional Profile (SETIP) guidelines in July 2018; (ii) Participatory irrigation management or Pengembangan dan Pengelolaan Sistem Irigasi Partisipatip (PPISP) guidelines for Water User Association (WUA) and farmers empowerment in November 2019; (iii) Irrigated Agriculture Management Plan (IAMP/RP2I) guidelines in November 2019; and (iv) Preparation for Operation and Maintenance (PROM) guidelines in April 2020.

Based on audit, gender mainstreaming elements are included in all produced guidelines and monitoring forms.

Methodology to establish the certification system drafted with DGWR, and MOA.

The irrigation commissions (KOMIRs) performance indicators guidelines have been updated and officially issued. As of 2019 68 KOMIRs are categorized as well performing, 17 KOMIRs are categorized as performing and 3 or 3% KOMIRs being categorized as Non-Performing.

DOM will work with the Ministry of Home Affaires (MOHA) to prepare the district IAMP/RP2Is, for completion in 2021.

The capacity development framework (CDF) is being updated annually comprising technical fiduciary (financial management procurement, anti-corruption), environment and social safeguards, and management components to improve capacity of participating agencies to comply with government regulations and agree program action plan. Several trainings have been carried out in 2018, 2019 and early 2020 by NPMU, DOM, DILL and MOHA. . Some trainings are postponed / delayed due to COVID-19 restriction in terms of travel and social gathering.

Water resources accounting prepared manually by SID consultants.

Prepared survey investigation design/detailed engineering design (SID/DED) includes impact of climate change.

Web-based geospatial combining the IKSI and IAMIS upgraded to SQL/interface with view and edit functions (including user manual and the technical specification) in June 2019.

Dataset on irrigation systems for around 545,556 ha migrated. DOM mobilized 10 PAKSI consultants and to mobilize 4 LiDAR companies for selected irrigation schemes to survey 2.5 million ha.

WUAs performance indicators have been updated. Baseline surveys completed, 5820 WUA inventoried and 2530 WUAs validated operationalized. DOM to assess share of women in the governing boards of WUAs.

The program has rehabilitated 99,322 hectare of irrigation schemes for DLI8, of which ADB has validated already 43,767 hectares. Verification for the remaining is ongoing and to be validated by ADB by Oct 2020.

Safeguard Categories
Environment B
Involuntary Resettlement B
Indigenous Peoples B
Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The program safeguards safety assessment (PSSA) confirmed the categorization for environment as B, because the potential adverse environmental impacts are reversible and site specific, and mitigation measures can be readily designed within the program safeguard system.
Involuntary Resettlement The PSSA also confirmed that the categorization for involuntary resettlement as B. Rehabilitation works will occur on existing irrigation canals that already have right-of-way. The works will not require any significant relocation of households or acquisition of productive assets.
Indigenous Peoples The PPSA also confirmed category B for Indigenous People.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The government has a comprehensive framework for participation of beneficiaries in irrigation. Farmers are involved at every step of the process to plan, design and implement rehabilitation works, maintain and operate irrigation systems as laid out in the MPWH regulations 12/2015 and 30/2015. Indonesia has also a regulatory framework which supports gender equality.
During Project Implementation The program design includes enhancing community participation to improve governance and delivery of services.
