Indonesia: Enhanced Water Security Investment Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51157-001 Status: Proposed

The proposed Enhanced Water Security Investment Project will support the Government of Indonesia to improve selected dimensions of water security (economic water security and resilience to water-related disasters). The project will promote an integrated water resources management approach to: (i) improve water resources planning and management to meet rising demands for irrigation and non-agricultural use; (ii) minimize spatial and temporal variations in water availability by improving water storage and conveyance; and (iii) increase resilience to climate change.

Description The proposed Enhanced Water Security Investment Project will support the Government of Indonesia to improve selected dimensions of water security (economic water security and resilience to water-related disasters). The project will promote an integrated water resources management approach to: (i) improve water resources planning and management to meet rising demands for irrigation and non-agricultural use; (ii) minimize spatial and temporal variations in water availability by improving water storage and conveyance; and (iii) increase resilience to climate change.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Although the national water security index progressed from 40.9 (over a scale of 0 -100) in 2013 to 49.8 in 2016, Indonesia is still at risk. The country is deficient in certain dimensions of water security, especially in household water security, urban water security, and resilience to water-related disasters, for which progress has been slow. This slow progress is affecting economic development and poverty reduction.

The project is aligned with the government strategies and with the priorities of ADB country partnership strategy 2016 2019 for Indonesia. The project is included in the ADB''s country operations business plan, 2018 -2020 for Indonesia. The project is aligned with the Water Operational Plan 2011 2020 and to the Climate Change Operational Framework 2017 -2030. The project will help achieve sustainable development goals 6.4, 6.5 and 13.

Indigenous Peoples C
Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Category A is recommended for Environment as project activities include: (1) improving capacity of the existing water storage; protecting infrastructure; and constructing sediment traps and/or new storages; (2) inter-basin water transfers; and (3) upgrading of groundwater infrastructure.
Involuntary Resettlement While the general areas of the project are known, at the current stage, the subprojects sites are being reviewed and will be determined during project preparation. Given the potential of resettlement impacts, the project team consider category A for involuntary resettlement impacts. A Resettlement Framework will be prepared for sector project and a Land Acquisition and Resettlement Plan will be prepared for any subproject triggering involuntary resettlement safeguard.
Indigenous Peoples The project is categorized B for Indigenous Peoples (IPs), because the project's impacts are not deemed significant. The physical displacement of IP groups from their traditional and customary land is not expected. While the general areas of the project are known, the subprojects' sites are being reviewed and will be determined during project preparation.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders (local floodplains, farmer communities and urban and rural residents) will be involved during project design.
During Project Implementation The main stakeholders (local floodplains, farmer communities and urban and rural residents) will be involved during project implementation.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services Consultants will be selected and engaged by ADB in accordance with the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time).
Procurement ADB will engage consulting firms and individual consultants and all TA financed Goods shall be procured in accordance with ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated Project Administration Instructions/TA Staff Instructions.
