Indonesia: Second Decentralized Health Services Project

November 16, 2015 | Indonesia | Validation of Project/Program Completion Report

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.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Successful.

Pakistan: Punjab Millennium Development Goals Program

October 23, 2015 | Pakistan | Validation of Project/Program Completion Report

In December 2008, ADB approved the Government of Pakistan’s request for support to attain Punjab’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially MDGs 4 and 5 relating to children and women’s health. The expected outcome of the program was to improve access to quality health services and make them more equitable. The program was designed as a cluster of three subprograms. Subprogram 1 was approved in December 2008 for a single tranche loan of $100 million. Subprogram 2, originally scheduled to be implemented between November 2008 and November 2009, was approved in June 2010 for a single tranche loan of $150 million. Subprogram 3, however, did not materialize as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) terminated its Stand-By Arrangement with Pakistan in October 2011 because the government failed to meet its commitments on implementing certain agreed reforms. The IMF country assessment letter for Pakistan, a prerequisite for ADB program loans, was not issued. After delays in moving the IMF program forward, ADB and the government agreed to cancel Subprogram 3 and the program was terminated.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Unsuccessful.

Indonesia: Rural Infrastructure Support to the PNPM Mandiri Project II

September 3, 2015 | Indonesia | Validation of Project/Program Completion Report

The community-driven development approach introduced in Indonesia in 1998 allowed communities to have control over planning decisions and investment resources so as to improve service delivery. The process mobilized local people, enabling them to prioritize their development needs, design activities, seek technical assistance, manage resources, and implement and sustain development actions. This organized collective action aimed to empower poor villagers by engaging local governments and national agencies to improve delivery of pro-poor services. Encouraged by the success of community-driven development programs and following more than a decade of implementation, the government formally adopted the community-driven development approach for the National Program for Community Empowerment (Program Nasional Pemberdayaan Masyarakat [PNPM]) Mandiri, a nationwide poverty reduction program launched in August 2006. The program aimed to expand its coverage to all 6,408 kecamatans by the end of 2009 and to reduce poverty by promoting community participation in development planning and management, and using the community-driven development approach to deliver basic services and infrastructure.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Successful.
