Indonesia: Participatory Irrigation Sector Project

The Participatory Irrigation Sector Project in Indonesia was approved on 19 December 2003 with an estimated cost of $126.0 million equivalent. The project was financed by two loans to a value of $73.0 million from the Asian Development Bank and a $15.0 million grant from the Government of the Netherlands. The project had four outputs: (i) upgraded district capacity to manage irrigation responsibilities, (ii) improved irrigation performance at scheme level, (iii) improved extension services and farmer access to agricultural inputs and services, and (iv) an improved system for water resource management information and asset management.

Indonesia: Sustainable Aquaculture Development for Food Security and Poverty Reduction Project

The investment rationale for the project was based on aquaculture’s increasingly important role in assuring food security and improving household incomes, as well as in generating foreign exchange revenues from exports. Aquaculture—which includes the development of sustainable and community-managed freshwater, brackish water, and marine aquaculture—has become an alternative livelihood for fisher folk who are usually engaged in open sea fishing, and has helped reduce pressure on marine and coastal resources. Poor farming practices, environmental degradation and pollution, lack of access to credit by small-scale farmers, expensive inputs, problems in marketing, and conflicts in the use of coastal areas have lowered the productivity of the aquaculture subsector.

Indonesia: Second Decentralized Health Services Project

Indonesia has made substantial progress in improving the health status of women and children, albeit with substantial disparities across provinces. There was a concern that as a result of the decentralization reforms, Indonesia’s progress in reaching the Millennium Development Goals on maternal and child health would become slow or even at the risk of being reversed. Thus, in 2003, the government requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to finance the Second Decentralized Health Services Project to help improve the health and nutritional status of vulnerable segments of the population, particularly women and children, in eight provinces. Since the decentralization reforms in the early 2000s, district governments have been responsible in managing the country’s health system.

Indonesia: Capital Market Development Program Cluster

The program was formulated as two single-tranche subprograms anchored on the government’s medium-term reform agenda and its financial sector reform programs. The program’s goal was to promote the financial sector’s diversification and resilience. Subprogram 1 undertook reforms to strengthen transparency and information disclosure essential to build confidence in capital markets and institutions, facilitate regulatory oversight, and in turn, to promote price discovery and market liquidity. Subprogram 2 built on the policy actions initiated under subprogram 1 in line with the government’s medium-term reform agenda and the capital market master plan. These included improving surveillance, promoting deeper and more liquid financial markets, and strengthening the role and quality of market participants. This validation is for the program completion report covering both subprograms 1 and 2 (the program). IED overall assessment: Successful.

Indonesia: Power Transmission Improvement Sector Project

In the energy sector, the strategies of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) were to make more energy available in a least-cost and environment-friendly manner and improve access to it for all, particularly the poor. ADB’s Country Assistance Plan 2001–2003 for Indonesia outlined support in the electricity subsector, particularly in Java-Bali and the outer islands. The project was part of the government’s strategy (i) to expand the country’s electricity supply based on a least-cost manner, (ii) improve supply efficiency and reliability, and (iii) make power generation, and distribution more financially viable through the Power Sector Restructuring Strategy of 1998.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Less than successful.
