3 I. INTRODUCTION 1. In October 2011, the Government of Thailand asked the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help prepare an international forum for countries to share experience and knowledge on flood management and response. ADB, in cooperation with the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB), organized the forum during January Subsequently, NESDB requested ADB to provide technical support for select key areas of the government s Master Plan on Water Resources Management, approved in January In response, ADB included the proposed technical assistance (TA) in its country operations business plan, for Thailand. 1 ADB fielded a reconnaissance mission in March and a fact-finding mission in June 2012, and reached agreements with NESDB, the Office of the National Water and Flood Management Policy (ONWF), and the Royal Irrigation Department (RID) on the scope, impact, outcome, outputs, implementation arrangements, costs, and financial arrangements for the TA. 2 II. ISSUES 2. During the last quarter of 2011, Thailand experienced its worst flooding since The floods affected almost 14 million people in 65 of Thailand s 77 provinces, with widespread damage and loss to homes, factories, businesses, transport and energy infrastructure, social service facilities, and crops and livestock. The Ministry of Finance estimates the total economic damage and loss caused by the floods at approximately $45 billion. Manufacturing experienced the most damage and loss, which is estimated at $32 billion. 3. The government responded to the 2011 floods with measures to strengthen flood management in the overall context of water resources management. In January 2012, it passed the Master Plan on Water Resources Management and an emergency decree for the borrowing of B350 billion 3 for investment in flood and water management projects. It set up the National Water Resources and Flood Policy Committee (NWFPC), chaired by the Prime Minister, to formulate policies in accordance with the master plan; and the Water and Flood Management Commission (WFMC), which reports to the NWFPC. The WFMC, chaired by the minister of sciences and technology, is responsible for formulating action plans and approving water management investment projects, monitoring their implementation, and evaluating their impact. The NWFPC and the WFMC include representatives from all relevant line agencies. The Office of the National Water and Flood Management Policy (ONWF) was established under the Prime Minister s Office to serve as an operating arm and secretariat to the NWFPC and the WFMC. 4. The government recognizes that flood management must be closely linked with broader issues of water resources management. The master plan calls for an integrated approach to investment in projects related to water management. It includes action plans for urgent measures to be implemented by 2012 and for activities beyond Activities are organized under eight major themes: (i) restoration and conservation of forests and ecosystems; (ii) management of major water reservoirs and formulation of a national annual water management plan; (iii) restoration and efficiency improvement of current and planned physical structures; (iv) development of an information warehouse, forecasting, and disaster warning system; (v) response to specific geographical areas; (vi) designation of water retention areas 1 ADB Country Operations Business Plan: Thailand, Manila. 2 The TA first appeared in the business opportunities section of ADB s website on 27 November According to the emergency decree, the borrowing must be completed by 30 June 2013; the investment can be completed after that date.

4 2 and recovery measures; (vii) improvement of water management institutions; and (viii) creation of stakeholder awareness, acceptance, and participation in flood management. 5. Guided by the master plan, the government is inviting submission of a conceptual plan for the design of infrastructure for sustainable water resources management and flood prevention from international communities. The WFMC chair is responsible for evaluating bids and supervising implementation of the subsequent investment projects. ONWF, as the WFMC secretariat, is responsible for preparing the groundwork for bid evaluation, coordinating with the winning bidder and all relevant line agencies in implementing projects, and monitoring and evaluating output and outcome of all water management projects. 6. To ensure overall project relevance and feasibility in the context of the master plan, each investment project must be prepared, appraised, implemented, monitored, and evaluated in relation to integrated water resources and flood management principles, following a standard set of project guidelines. 4 Water and flood management projects that focus only on localized conditions fail to take account of the downstream impact; therefore, basin wide impacts need to be identified prior to any project approval. Plans must also be adjusted to fully integrate with the overall master plan for water and flood management. ONWF must be able to identify and manage these issues. The government recognizes that appraisal, monitoring, and evaluation of water and flood management projects need to be carried out with oversight from senior national bodies, including NESDB, ONWF, and the Public Debt Management Office (PDMO). 5 With improved project proposal screening, monitoring, and evaluation, the cabinet will be able to make more informed decisions on integrated water resources and flood management based on systematic analysis and reporting from NESDB and ONWF. 7. The Yom River basin is an important upper Chao Phraya watershed needing strengthened regulation, as well as structural and nonstructural water management and flood control measures. Currently, the main stream of the Yom River has no structure to regulate water. Many studies have been prepared on options for structural measures in the basin. However, relevant agencies acknowledge that the studies do not address several aspects, such as adequate assessment of the social, ecological, and economic impacts of the proposed investment alternatives. Proposed construction of reservoirs in the Yom River basin has resulted in protests by communities that may be affected. For effective implementation of water management projects within the basin, additional reviews, studies, and consultations are needed to enable selection of the most technically, economically, and socially feasible options. The 2011 floods brought new recognition among Yom River communities of the need to consider better management of the basin. In addition, both the community and the government must realize that any structural measures in the Yom River basin should be considered in the context of overall water resources management. In 2008, ADB supported pilot and demonstration activities in the Yom River basin, which developed a network of communities and a stakeholder participation process. 6 The proposed TA is well placed to build on recent developments in integrated water resources management and to ensure that stakeholders are effectively engaged in developing the Yom River basin road map and assessing development options. 4 Integrated water resources and flood management principles are the step-by-step process of managing water resources to achieve water security-for-all, and managing the risks of too much or too little water, including preventing and mitigating water-related disasters. 5 The Public Debt Management Office is responsible for borrowing under the emergency decree to finance water and flood management projects. The office will use the disbursement benchmark to monitor project progress. 6 ADB Piloting an Adaptive Approach to Implement Integrated Water Resources Management in the Yom River Basin. Manila.

5 3 III. THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE A. Impact and Outcome 8. The impact will be reduced damage and loss from floods. The outcome will be an improved decision-making process for integrated water resources management, focusing on flood management. B. Methodology and Key Activities 9. The TA has two components. 10. Component 1: Develop planning and implementation guidelines for water management project assessment, monitoring, and evaluation. The TA will help ONWF develop guidelines, checklists, and a management information system for assessing, monitoring, and evaluating proposed national, provincial, and local government flood management projects in the context of the Master Plan for Water Resources Management. This is to ensure that proposals are consistent with the principles and context of the integrated water resources and flood management approach and plans. The component has two outputs. 11. Output 1: Guidelines and checklist for water management programs and projects. The TA team will (i) undertake a review of current water resources and flood management policy and planning procedures in Thailand, including relevant legislation and regulations; (ii) study the current strategy for reducing flood risk and the proposed program of works and measures ready for implementation under the master plan; (iii) prepare guidelines for good practice for water management project planning; and (iv) develop a checklist for ONWF to assess project implementation readiness, taking into consideration integration with the Master Plan for Water Resources Management and broader aspects of water resources management, including water conservation and water supply; and with safeguards necessary to secure social and environmental outcomes. Training workshops will be conducted to introduce the guidelines for good practice in water management to key government and nongovernment stakeholders in water resources management. 12. Output 2: Guidelines and management information system for monitoring implementation and evaluating impacts of water management programs and projects. The TA team will (i) develop a set of guidelines for monitoring implementation and evaluating impacts of post-implementation phases of water management projects to ensure effective integration and management, assess how well the intended benefits of projects and programs are being realized, identify associated problems and/or issues, and propose remedial measures where required; (ii) develop a management information system for monitoring implementation and evaluating impacts that will integrate data and information available from existing platforms and systems of relevant agencies, analyze data according to specifications using data visualization techniques, and generate required reports and executive summaries; and (iii) conduct workshops on the use of the guidelines and management information system. 13. Component 2: Review water management options and strengthen the participation process for the Yom River basin. The TA will (i) demonstrate an integrated approach to flood and water management through a pilot study of the Yom River basin; (ii) provide frameworks for water assessments and system analysis, and update existing information; and (iii) build on earlier stakeholder consultations and institutional development work to develop innovative approaches and sustainable mechanisms for participation. The component has three outputs.

6 4 14. Output 3: Water resources assessment and systems analysis guidance for the Yom River basin. To update the assessment of basin water resources, the TA will (i) review previous studies on water storage in the basin, considering flood management and strengthening of water supply security, and (ii) identify information gaps and recommend appropriate methodology to updating assessments of current and future demand for water in the basin. 15. Output 4: Framework for systems analysis of surface and groundwater in the Yom River basin. The TA will recommend (i) appropriate methodology and approaches for analysis of alternative storage and/or a combination of storage for mitigation of flood and drought impacts, and (ii) an appropriate evaluation technique for the potential role of upland water conservation, soil and run-off management, and reforestation to improve flood and water resources management. 16. Output 5: Yom River basin consultative process and participation mechanism. The TA will facilitate a revived consultation process between communities in the river basin and relevant government agencies, academia, and civil society. It will support the design of a consultation process and train government agencies, academia, and civil society to engage stakeholders in identifying and defining basin management objectives, water management strategies, and investment alternatives. The findings of earlier economic, social, and environmental impact studies will be communicated to communities and relevant agencies to create a shared understanding. Through lessons from the consultative process, appropriate social and environmental safeguards and monitoring and evaluation programs will be proposed. The TA will document the consultative process and lessons to serve as examples for other river basins. C. Cost and Financing 17. The TA is estimated to cost $2,000,000, of which $1,500,000 will be financed on a grant basis by the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction and administered by ADB. The Government of Thailand will provide counterpart support in the form of office accommodation, communication facilities, information technology platform and server, counterpart staff, and other in-kind contributions. The detailed cost estimates and financing plan are presented in Appendix 2. D. Implementation Arrangements 18. NESDB will be the executing agency. For component 1, ONWF will be the implementing agency. The TA will also work closely with the Public Debt Management Office to develop monitoring and evaluation guidelines and the information technology-based system. The WFMC will provide strategic guidance for TA implementation. For component 2, RID will be the implementing agency. TA implementation offices will be established in ONWF and RID. A TA project steering committee will be established and chaired by NESDB, with all relevant agencies, including Department of Water Resources, ONWF, PDMO, and RID, represented as members. 19. The TA is tentatively scheduled for implementation from December 2012 to December A consulting firm and two individual consultants will be recruited to undertake the TA activities; about 73 person-months of consulting services will be required, comprising 19 personmonths of international and 54 person-months of national consulting services.
