Project Description

The project will support the Government of Indonesia and river-based communities in better managing and mitigating flood risks. The project has been designed as a sector loan to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Water Resources, 2015 -2019 (SPWR) of the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (MPWH). The SPWR includes policy measures and priority investments in 63 river basin territories (RBTs) in Indonesia. The project will finance subprojects in the Cidanau Ciujung Cidurian (Banten province) and Ambon Seram (Maluku province) RBTs. Project interventions will (i) enhance hydrometeorological data and analysis, management, and institutional coordination for managing flood risks; (ii) upgrade and develop flood protection infrastructure; (iii) improve watershed conditions to moderate runoff peaks and soil erosion; and (iv) prepare communities to manage floods. The project will promote effective flood risk management (FRM) by coupling infrastructure investment with supporting software measures. It will contribute to the achievement of the government's National Medium Term Development Plan, 2015 2019 (RPJMN) sector target to reduce the magnitude of economic and social damage due to floods.

The project will support implementation of part of the SPWR calling for a $3.06 billion investment in flood management. The Cidanau Ciujung Cidurian RBT (which is affected by river floods) and the Ambon Seram RBT (which experiences flash floods) have been initially selected to demonstrate FRM in implementing the RPJMN. The investment will help the government accelerate implementation of Rencanas in selected RBTs, and provides (i) a long-term partnership between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the government for policy dialogue and capacity development, and (ii) the potential to investment in other priority areas to ensure continuity in combining infrastructure with nonstructural components.
