During Project Design

During the PPTA, the consultant will identify how the main stakeholders will participate in the project design to improve living standards in the entire community. From point of view of Inclusive Growth, the project focuses on poor and low/middle income households in agriculture sector. To promote redistribution in the community, consultants analyze correlation between income levels and land areas at three steps: pre, in action and post surveys, and investigate how the project impacts on households' income by income/land area levels.

Key initial stakeholders are: (i) farmers and their family members, who spend a lot of time and effort on delivering water and housework, and obtain irrigation water-use skills and irrigated agriculture practices; and (ii) water users' committees responsible for domestic water-use systems in community level, and (iii) farmer's organizations responsible for irrigation water-use in on-farm level under the output 2 of the Project. WUCs and farmers' organizations will participate in preparing detailed engineering designs in irrigation and domestic water distribution systems in arid areas. Farmers and community members will participate in forming WUCs and farmers' organizations. Further, farmers will participate in preparing the design and construction of water courses in each subproject in arid area.

During Project Implementation

Consultant team and individual consultant were recruited in August and have been fielded on the first week of September 2014. The contract was extended up to 30 April 2016.

In July 2015, ADB approved an additional $200,000 grant financing and TA extension up to 30 April 2016 to provide additional resources and time needed to implement the inclusion of additional 2,000 ha and 200 ha in PHLCE Project and Chapra Dam core sub-project.
