Description

The proposed Balochistan Water Resources Development Project is located in the Zhob and Mula river basins in the Balochistan. The project impact will be the increased farm income in the project area. The project outcome will be the increased agricultural production. The project outputs will be (i) irrigation infrastructure and watershed protection constructed and/ rehabilitated; (ii) command area expanded and improved; and (iii) institutional capacity strengthened.

The project will cost about $125.5 million and ADB will provide finance of $100 million and the government of Balochistan will provide the balance.

The project will adopt an integrated water resources management approach for the irrigation development activities. The project will support implementation of the IWRM policy, and in turn supports and strengthens several principal elements of ADB's water policy, including: (i) improving the efficiency of water use and delivery; (ii) fostering water conservation and sustainability of infrastructure; and (iii) improving governance through beneficiary participation and capacity building. In addition to irrigation infrastructure, the project will help establish water resources information system for improved water resources management and monitoring, address watershed degradation by improving vegetative cover and undertaking physical interventions to reduce erosion in critical areas through integrated and participatory approaches. It will further seek to strengthen the capacity of and coordination between the agencies in charge of watershed management through the project implementation process. Improved on-farm water management is critical to raising cropping intensities and optimizing productivity increases from the investments in irrigation infrastructure. In addition, the project will support high value agriculture which is essential to improve farmers' income in Balochistan. These aspects also form an integral part of the project design and will help to achieve benefits that would not be possible through investments in water resources infrastructure alone.

To address the GoB's limited capacity and experience in data collecting and processing, the project will work in partnership with Pakistan Council for Water Resources to establish and maintain a water resources information system to strengthen GoB's capacity to collect, transmit, process, and share hydrometeorology data for improved water management. The project design also explicitly recognizes the institutional, social, and cultural barriers to women's empowerment and the impact this may have on access to and participation in water resources development activities. Female community organizers at the project's implementing offices will collect data and information on the roles and responsibilities of women and assess their specific requirements. The possible effects of scheme development for women will be assessed and practical opportunities to develop and implement gender-specific interventions identified, particularly provision of efficient on-farm water and agronomic management and high value agricultural production.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Pakistan has to increase food production by 40-50% to meet the needs of a projected population of 221 million by 2025. ADB's interim country partnership strategy (2014-2015) emphasizes revitalizing agriculture for food security and poverty alleviation. ADB's midterm review of Strategy 2020 recognizes infrastructure and agriculture as the main focus area and proposes a 10-point program on ADB strategic directions in 2014-2020. The country assistance program evaluation, 20022012 assessed Pakistan's agriculture and natural resource sector less than successful, but it evaluated the program relevant in terms of its alignment with government and ADB strategies, and satisfactory for its strategic positioning. The evaluation is viewed as appropriate in ADB's commitment to support Pakistan in responding to the need to rehabilitate and expand the irrigation system.

Of the 13 million Balochistan population, over 70% live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Agriculture accounts about two-third of the provincial domestic product, 60% of the labor force, and supports several industries by providing raw materials. However, the agricultural sector suffers from water shortage, frequent drought, and poor agricultural practices, which expose the rural communities to high vulnerability especially women and children who suffer from inadequate domestic water supply. The Balochistan Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper emphasizes the need to expand cropped area, rehabilitate agricultural infrastructure, and reduce vulnerability to drought.

Balochistan's water resources comprise groundwater (4%), water share from Indus Basin (39%), and floodwater (57%). The groundwater is over-exploited and requires a comprehensive reassessment. Balochistan's Indus water share remains underutilized and needs appropriate policy for optimum benefits. Floodwater has further development potential with only 40% of the floodwater resources being utilized and 60% flowing down to the sea. The perennial irrigation (including canals and drains) is seriously deteriorated and requires rehabilitation.

The Balochistan Comprehensive Development Strategy (2013-2020) identifies gaps, sets priorities and associated plans to improve key sectors including agriculture and water resources. The BCDS recognizes (i) increasing water supply and reducing the demand gap, (ii) water logging and salinity, (iii) low irrigation efficiencies, (iv) groundwater mining, (v) neglected spate irrigation farming, and (vi) seawater intrusion in the coastal areas as the main agricultural development constraint. The strategy emphasizes (i) basin water management, (ii) promoting high water use efficiency, (iii) strengthening water management research, (iv) creating Balochistan Water Resources Management Authority (BWRMA), and (v) an investment requirement of PRs68,333 (equivalent $650 million) for the water sector for the strategy period. Sustainable water management in Balochistan's 14 main river basins is a key to increase food production and economic growth. A $300 million World Bank project is already helping the Government in water management in three river basins. Balochistan's integrated water resource management (IWRM) approach identifies 16 areas for improvement including water conservation and better use of surface water resources.

A sector loan is proposed to assist the Government to (i) establish the BWRMA, (ii) adopt an approved BCDS, (iii) operationalize an IWRM approach, and (iv) improve water related infrastructure. Balochistan has a draft BCDS and sector development plan. The Government intended to improve sector policy, institutional and regulatory framework, and sector investment. The proposed project will follow a river basin approach, where policy, institutional, and infrastructural improvements are important. Pakistan has experience in implementing several ADB financed projects in the sector. The IPD has been implementing an ongoing World Bank project. The four river basins will be studied and prioritized following criteria for high development potential, low security risk and return on investment, and feasible subprojects will be developed.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The Project is categorized as A' for environmental safeguards as the same may have significant, unprecedented, and irreversible impacts due to development of Sri Toi Dam. Other subprojects are likely to have site specific environmental impacts which can be readily mitigated through implementation of Environmental Management Plans (EMPs). An environmental assessment and review framework (EARF), environmental impact assessment (EIA) study for Sri Toi Dam and four initial environmental examination (IEE) studies for sub projects 'Karakh , Ahmedzai, Zhob River, Quetta Water Resources Building and Kharzan Hatachi Irrigation were prepared and disclosed on ADB website. The environmental assessments have been prepared by Project Management Office (PMO) of Balochistan Irrigation Department (BID) in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS) 2009. Adequate mitigation measures are included and will be implemented through site specific environmental management plans (SSEMP's) during the construction phase. Overall responsibility for the implementation of the plans will rest with project construction contractors. PMO will also ensure the implementation of the project's environmental safeguards by hiring a dedicated Environment Specialist in Supervision Consultant. An external environmental monitor will also be hired considering the project is categorized as A' for environmental safeguards. Semi Annual Environmental Monitoring Reports (SAEMRs) will also be prepared by PMO and disclosed on ADB website.
Involuntary Resettlement

The project comprises 11 subprojects involving construction of small new dams and command area rehabilitation work including the irrigation schemes. Of these, the subproject of 'Sri Toi Dam is the only project requiring acquisition of about 1093 acres of barren land, owned by 129 landowners. A land acquisition and resettlement plan (LARP) of IR category B has been prepared/updated and uploaded on ADB website. All remaining subprojects are IR and IP category C as these involve no LAR impacts. Social due diligence reports (SDDR) of these subprojects have been prepared and disclosed already. Overall project category for IPs is C as no IPs/groups (as described in SPS 2009) exist in and around the project areas.

Section 5 and 5A of Land Acquisition Act 1894 (LAA) have been completed. Meeting of District Price Assessment Committee (DPAC) for assessment of land price is expected soon following which the land award is expected to be issued in next few months. The internal and external monitoring consultants are onboard and semiannual social monitoring reports (SASMRs) are being issued and disclosed. The next SASMRs are due in July 2022. Currently, there are no issues or complaints concerning safeguards compliance due to project-based grievance redress mechanism well established and functioning.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A stakeholder analysis will identify the poor and excluded who should participate in and be involved in the process of the design and decision on project packages during project preparation. In addition a capacity development component under the proposed project will be proposed to help build the capacity of WUAs to address farmers' demands and complaints. Irrigation projects by definition benefit those with land more than the landless, who are usually the poorest. Irrigation improvement however has indirect effects on local employment especially in terms of productivity gains and improved maintenance.
During Project Implementation The PMU will ensure stakeholder consultations with communities and affected parties are held.
