Description The Climate Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (SDP) is proposed to support and accelerate the efficient and effective implementation of the Strategy on Agriculture and Water (SAW) and the _Policy on the Promotion of Paddy Production and Rice Export_ (the Rice Policy). It will address food security and rice commercialization by prioritizing: (i) strengthening the rice value chain; (ii) improving the legal and regulatory framework in agricultural land management; (iii) improving access to credit by paddy producers and rice millers/exporters; and (iv) enhancing paddy production and productivity through improved irrigation water use efficiency, establishment of paddy post-harvesting facilities, and paddy crop insurance pilots. The SDP will (i) address major strategic thrusts of the 2011 2013 Country Partnership Strategy, and sector strategies and roadmap; and (ii) complement the on-going sector initiatives by emphasizing the commercialization aspects of rice.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Development Context. During the last decade, Cambodia has achieved impressive economic growth with gross domestic products (GDP) averaging 10% per annum during the 2004-2010 period. Despite its declining GDP share from 46% in the 1990's to 34% in 2010, agriculture remains an important sector in the national economy. It is an important source of livelihood for 85% of the population. Paddy production covers 84% of cultivated land and contributes about 38% of agricultural value added or 13% of the national GDP in 2010. Paddy production has been crucial in creating employment and reducing the national poverty rate from 47% in 1993 to 30% in 2010. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) set the annual GDP growth target of 7% and poverty reduction rate of 1% per annum from 2009 onwards. Given its significant share in the national GDP, rice continues to play a crucial role in enhancing macro-economic stability, food security, and poverty reduction. However, to achieve economic growth on a broader and sustainable basis, substantial constraints in rice value chain need to be removed.

Key binding constraints in rice commercialization observed include: (i) production is largely traditional and unorganized; (ii) value chains are weak and fragmented; (iii) agro-industry small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) are under-developed; (iv) intra- and inter-sector connectivity is limited particularly with energy, finance and transport constraining production and market access; and (v) domestic marketing standards are low and rice trading with regional and global markets is limited. These constraints are due largely to the lack of an enabling legal and/or regulatory environment for strengthening market linkages, productivity enhancement, organized production, and sustainable access to finance, among others. In terms of natural resources, while Cambodia is endowed with ample land and water resources favorable for paddy and other crop production, use efficiency of these resources is suboptimal due to limited capacity in agricultural land management and underinvestment in increasing total factor productivity. Therefore, it is critical for agricultural land to be managed efficiently and effectively by practicing sound agricultural land use zoning, soil productivity potential mapping, water use/irrigation efficiency management, and environmental and climate change risk/vulnerability mapping and management.

Innovative Features. The SDP is among the first initiatives in Southeast Asia that contemplates rice commercialization and simultaneously addresses resilience of its underlying agro-ecological system. As a matter of fact, the evolution and development of a commercial rice value chain will create pressure on natural resources which may cause degradation of the soil, loss of biodiversity or soil and/or water pollution. The SDP's interventions will increase resilience by promoting sound agricultural land use zoning, soil productivity potential mapping, water use/irrigation efficiency management, and environmental and climate change risk/vulnerability mapping. In this regard, the SDP, if implemented successfully, will be a role model for climate resilient cropping practices for rice in response to growing global food demand. Moreover, although the primary focus of the SDP will be on rice commercialization, the enabling legal, regulatory and institutional conditions put in place for rice will also create favorable conditions for the commercialization of other agricultural commodities. This will enable Cambodia to promote agricultural diversification and economic growth on a broader and sustainable basis.

Justifications for Adopting the SDP Modality. The proposed interventions include a policy reform component, an investment component, and an associated technical assistance. The SDP modality is preferred and proposed for the following reasons. Commercialization of rice that addresses resilience of its underlying agro-ecological system will entail adjustments in legal framework and relevant regulations coupled with institutional strengthening of relevant actors. While this is necessary, it will not be sufficient to unlock the potential of supply chain actors including private sector investors and individual households. Therefore, policy and regulatory reforms will have to be accompanied by well sequenced/timed investments that enhance factor productivity. In this regard, adopting the sector development program modality for the proposed interventions is not only desirable, but necessary. Moreover, the RGC is firmly committed to rice commercialization to enhance economic growth and food security. Significant adjustment costs are associated with its implementation.

Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Enhanced Production of Quality Rice in Cambodia while preserving the natural resource base
Progress Toward Outcome

Significant progress has been made toward achieving the 12-policy actions required for the release of second tranche.

The implementation of policy-based loan component has been completed. 11 out of 12 policy actions required for the release of second and final tranche are achieved and one, the draft Law on Plant Protection and Quarantine, is substantially achieved.

The Government showed its commitment to achieving the draft Law as it has to comply with the WTO agreement and the draft Law is already taken up at the highest level of the Government.

The draft Law has already been subjected to intensive discussion and deliberations and have reached the Council of Ministers (CoM).

The General Directorate of Agriculture (GDA) of MAFF conducted 12 technical working group meetings, 3 regional consultation workshops and 2 public consultation workshops to come up with the draft Law and submitted the draft to MAFF on 27 October 2016. Upon receiving the draft Law, MAFF had conducted 9 review meetings and finalized the draft Law and submitted to the CoM on 12 September 2017. The CoM has conducted 15 technical committee meetings and came up with a final draft of the Law. The draft Law is now being reviewed at the inter-ministerial meetings to attain consensus among the members before submitting it to the National Assembly. Six inter-ministerial meetings were already conducted by the CoM, the last meeting being on 7-8 February 2018. Once CoM agrees to the draft Law, it will be submitted to National Assembly.

MAFF/NIO and MEF/PMO completed all documentation needed for the release of second tranche including the progress report and MEF/PMO has submitted all the documents to CARM on 8 April 2019.

MOWRAM/NIO has completed rehabilitation of six irrigation sub-projects benefitting around 48 villages, 10,343 households including 1,519 female headed households. These six subprojects created a combined potential irrigated area of 10,373 hectares and a total of 49,520 farmer beneficiaries including 25,326 women (20%) got access to water through these irrigation subprojects. A further 3 sub-projects are under contract award stage. Climate resilient design features for each sub-project is incorporated.

Works are on progress. Results will be available late 2019.

A Rice Seed Production Manual including formats for Letters of Agreement (LoAs) for all types of seed production was prepared, necessary approvals obtained and followed to produce 40.5 tons of registered rice seed (RS) at 3 selected agriculture stations. As of December 2018, 18 tons of registered rice seed were sold to ACs in the project target areas while 22 tons were sold to ACs and seed producer groups outside the project areas to produce certified seed (CS) for onward sale to farmers, traders, rice millers, etc. It was estimated that around 1,150 tons of certified rice seed were produced and distributed for quality paddy production. Meanwhile the LOAs for RS production in 15 hectares of land in 2018 have been signed and it is expected that around 35 tons of final product will be produced for sale. In addition, the LOAs for CS production have also been signed with 14 ACs for growing on 20 hectares of agricultural land which is expected to produce approximately 50 tons of final product.

To be assessed.

A second study tour was conducted for the Rice-SDP senior management from EA and IAs, and rice millers who submitted EOIs under PDS facilities were also included to visit modern rice milling facilities in Cambodia and Thailand in February 2018. A total of 39 participants including 4 females (10%) participated in the study tour. The Bulk Handling Study conducted by MAFF/NIO through the engagement of a service provider was completed and the final report was accepted by MAFF/NIO.

Work is on progress. Launching new insurance scheme will be in Q4 2019.

The Letters of Agreement (LoAs) for implementation CAEA are signed between MAFF/NIO and PDAFF from 3 target provinces. The field work in each province commenced in November 2017 with a target to complete 90 CAEAs by 2018. By 31 March 2019, the CAEAs are 100% completed. 2,933 participants (farmers, local authorities, village elders, etc.), of which 899 (30%) were women, participated in the preparation of these CAEAs. The implementation of updating of maps related to rice ecosystems and soil classification in in three target provinces has started after the approval of the Concept Note by the PMO. MAFF/NIO has completed training on soil survey and classification in 3 target provinces with a participation of a total of 81 participants, of which 16 were women.

MLMUPC/NIO has completed training workshops for Commune Land Use Plan (CLUP) in all target provinces.

As part of capacity building activities, MLMUPC/NIO conducted 3 workshops and 5 training programs covering topics such as preparation of CLUP, future land uses technical training, training on Aerial mapping, Remote Sensing and GIS, and CLUP monitoring and evaluation. 354 participants, of which 27 were women (8%) participated in the capacity building programs.

The PMO recruited a service provider to conduct feasibility study (FS) on Weather Indexed Crop Insurance (WICI) in September 2017 and the firm completed its study in March 2018 and submitted the final study report in May 2018. Based on the FS report, the PMO drafted a ToR and following ADB endorsement, initiated recruitment of a detailed design and pilot testing consulting firm. The firm is expected to be mobilized by May 2019.

As WICI is a cross-cutting topic, the PMO had drafted a concept note and relevant ToR for establishment of a technical working group for providing guidance to study, design and implementation of WICI. The Government has approved the establishment of an Inter-Ministerial Technical Working Group (TWG) comprising of members from MEF, MAFF, and MOWRAM. CambodiaRe (Cambodia Reinsurance Company a Public Sector Enterprise) is also included as a member of the TWG. The TWG worked closely with the firm conducting feasibility study on WICI and provided guidance in the study. The TWG will work closely with the detailed design and pilot testing consulting firm and provide recommendation to the Government on possible scaling up of WICI across Cambodia.

Feasibility Study is completed. Detailed designed (DD) and construction supervision (CS) firm is recruited and mobilized in February 2019. 3 Seed Processing and Storage (SPS) facilities will be established.

Feasibility Study is completed. Recruitment of DD and CS firm is completed and the firm was mobilized on 17 December 2018. Overall ranking of 9 Rice Millers who expressed interest to avail concessionary loan for establishment of PDS is finalized by PDS Selection Committee. Around 6 PDS facilities are expected to be established.

Following the approval of concept note describing the implementation of Land Levelling of agricultural field of farmers within the selected irrigation sub-project sites or agricultural cooperatives (ACs), PIOs have carried out recruitment of service providers and signed 14 contracts to level a total of 1,653 hectares of agriculture field. BY March 2019, 1,300 hectares has been levelled benefitting a total of 5,422 farmers including 2,805 female farmers (52%).

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects An environmental assessment was conducted for policy and project interventions during preparation. Policy interventions focus on improving agricultural practices (chemicals and fertilizer application), land-use zoning (to avoid environmentally sensitive areas), watershed protection, and water management in irrigation systems, all of which will improve the investment decision making and are likely to contribute to sustainable increase in rice production. An initial environmental examination was conducted for three representative subprojects to identify potential impacts, appropriate mitigation measures and monitoring mechanisms. These confirmed that proposed investments are not likely to cause significant adverse environmental impacts. Pre-screening of subprojects against environmental criteria also minimized the risk for negative environmental impact. Subprojects will follow environmental assessment procedures stipulated in the environmental assessment and review framework.
Involuntary Resettlement Limited involuntary resettlement is foreseen under Rice-SDP because of the screening of subprojects completed during preparation and only minor resettlement impacts are anticipated and this can be mitigated accordingly. Rehabilitation of irrigation systems will not cause significant resettlement impacts because works will be along existing rights of way and will mainly require, if any, the acquisition of minor amounts of land from persons living in existing canal rights of way and minor compensation for trees, crops or possibly small part of structures. The development of paddy drying and storage facilities will require the purchase of land on the open market using the principle of willing buyer and willing seller.' There may be small land donations from the community for canal rehabilitation depending on subproject design requirements. All related transactions and consultation will be recorded accordingly. Issues related to compensation of previous canal rehabilitation (if any) shall be addressed by the government before subprojects can commence implementation. Interventions directed at other areas of the value chain involve mainly capacity building and raise no resettlement issues. Rice-SDP is assessed as Category B for resettlement. The Government has prepared a resettlement framework, to be endorsed by the Inter-ministerial Resettlement Committee. All costs related to resettlement and land purchase will be financed by the Government.
Indigenous Peoples Based on commune data-base information, supported by socio-economic survey in the target provinces, there were no indigenous peoples living in the subproject areas. In some beneficiary villages, there are Cham and Lao households. They have been living in Cambodia for several generations and are well mainstreamed into Cambodian society, undertaking the same livelihood pursuits and living amongst their Khmer neighbors. The communities and local authorities have confirmed that there are no indigenous peoples and no negative impact of the subproject investments on ethnic groups. Rice-SDP is assessed as Category C for Indigenous Peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A comprehensive participatory socioeconomic and gender role survey was conducted in 27 villages, involving 243 households.
During Project Implementation Community consultations will continue throughout implementation of the program. During construction, poor households will actively participate and benefit by providing wage labor. Bidding documents will request contractors to pursue such participation where possible.Communities will participate in operating and maintaining completed infrastructure by providing labor. Avenues for civil society participation include (i) participation in consultations throughout implementation cycle, (ii) working with farmer's cooperatives, and (iii) potential engagement as external monitoring agencies. Consultation covers local community leaders, civil society, and local peoples' organizations. The participation of civil society will be ensured by a number of means, including service contracts between Rice-SDP implementing agencies and nongovernment organizations for monitoring and evaluation and appropriate engagement as representatives of the beneficiaries.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services PIC was mobilized in November 2014. Recruitment of consultants for design and construction supervision of irrigation and agriculture subprojects, and weather indexed crop insurance program is in process. All recruitment are expected to complete by 30 June 2016
Procurement Number of packages for some of the procurement will be determined after detailed design of the relevant components.
