Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Some gender elements
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

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

DGWR reported 94,052 ha. from national schemes and 122,871 ha. from subnational schemes rehabilitated in 2017.

DILL now reviewing achievements with social and environment screening tools to ensure Category A irrigation schemes were not included.

Modernization guidelines drafted.

As of 31 Dec 2017, guidelines for PROM, SETIP; WUAs; and IAMP are being updated.

Methodology to establish the certification system was consulted with DGWR, MOA, and MOHA through national convention.

The irrigation commissions performance indicators guidelines have been updated as the basis to assess operationalization of irrigation commissions.

The RP2I guidelines have been drafted. Once issued, DOM will review the 12 RP2Is that have been reported in the program area.

The program will support updating and improvement of RP2Is as relevant.

Gender audit is ongoing. Based on audit, gender mainstreaming elements are included in these guidelines and monitoring forms.

A draft capacity development framework (CDF) has been developed and will be implemented on a yearly basis. The CDF comprises 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. Most of 2018 CDF activities will be implemented in 2018 in cluster basis.

All technical toolkits that describe legal basis; implementation guidelines and examples are being finalized by respective technical units for dissemination. Toolkits will form the basis of the training modules to support implementation of the CDF.

Conceptualization of an updated IAMIS software has started and is expected to be upgraded to a web-based geospatial system by Dec 2018.

Will start to review quality of 0.2 million ha and integrate them to IAMIS.

WUAs performance indicators are being updated. As of to May 2018, inception mission 3720 WUAs have been inventoried in the program area.

List of registered WUAs within the program area is being compiled.

The SETIP guidelines have been updated (DLI2). The updated guidelines include gender mainstreaming elements, and environment and social safeguards information.

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.
