|Description||The proposed Jalalpur Irrigation Project is located in Punjab, Pakistan. The project will provide irrigation from summer floods to 65,000 hectares and will increase agricultural production of rainfed areas in Jhelum and Khushab districts. The project will (i) construct over 200 kilometers of new irrigation canals, (ii) introduce a farmers-based irrigation management, and (iii) train farmers in good farming practices.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The project design advance (PDA) and the ensuing project are listed in the country operations business plan for 2016 2018. The project is estimated to cost $190 million, including taxes, duties, physical and price contingencies, and interest and other charges on the loan during implementation. ADB financing of $150 million from ordinary capital resources (OCR) is proposed. The project follows the priorities set in the country partnership strategy, 2015 2019.|
|Description of Outcome|
|Progress Toward Outcome||The consultants hired under the Project will help make the Project procurement-ready and will enable the Project to award contracts and start disbursements on or shortly after loan effectiveness. Recruitment of construction supervision consultants for the ensuing loan is ongoing. Issuance of Request for Proposal to shortlisted firms was approved on 22 February 2018. Draft bidding documents being reviewed by ADB.|

|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The design consultants recruited under PDA will conduct structured meetings with the farmer's and other stakeholders.|
|During Project Implementation||The project implementation consultant will create awareness raising, develop water users associations and farmers' organization and private agriculture support services; all through consultation following the participatory approach.|
|Consulting Services||All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. The three consultancy services with an estimated 823 person-months including 4 person-months of international and 819 person-months of national experts are required to (i) facilitate PDA project management and implementation, (ii) strengthen the institutional and operational capacity of the implementing agency, and (iii) design review for quality assurance and efficiency. The national consulting services will be used due to adequate in-country capacity of similar assignments, lack of availability of quality international experts due to security reasons and cost effectiveness. Consulting firm for the detailed design will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a quality: cost ratio of 90:10. The Consultant will field their core staff for all key components. The consultants, who were involved in the upstream work such as feasibility study of this project, will be considered eligible to compete for detailed design, should they express interest in doing so, their current activities do not grant them an unfair competitive advantage (see para. 1.12 of the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants; 2013).|
