Indonesia Irrigation Sector Project – Detailed Design Mission
The overall objective for IFAD’s draft interim strategy for Indonesia (2014-2015) was to support the Government of Indonesia in achieving its agriculture and fisheries development targets and to empower smallholder producers to become more productive and better integrated with markets to achieve enhanced food security, increased incomes and reduce poverty and vulnerability. The latter because the Government of Indonesia prioritized poverty reduction and requested its partners to assist in developing a more strategic and sustainable approach to strengthening organizations of smallholder producers, enhancing their productivity and facilitating their links to the markets through active participation with the private sector. The Government also renewed its commitment to the empowerment and protection of the smallholder farmer in the country.
The goal of the mission was to undertake the detailed design of the Indonesia Irrigation Sector Project with the ADB. The project design was developed in close consultation with ADB, with a focus on aligning and harmonising the design processes and related outputs, but also considering key stakeholders (government, civil society, private sector, development partners) and the country-owned development and sectoral priorities. The final output was the elaboration of a joint draft project design document based on ADB format and procedures.
