activity will provide operational guidance for how the Government of Indonesia
can improve the quality of village infrastructure and its resilience to climate
risks. Specifically, the GFDRR grant will support three key
activities: a regulatory assessment of village infrastructure; an expenditure
review of village O&M which disaggregates village spending based on climate
vulnerability providing; and the design of a technical assessment of village
infrastructure projects, with a particular focus on how villages assess
environmental impacts of and on infrastructure projects.The proposed
grant activities will enhance the implementation of the Institutional
Strengthening for Improved Village Service Delivery Project (P3PD, P165543). P3PD aims
to strengthen institutional capacity for improved quality of spending in
participating villages. With the largest share of village budgeting being spent
on infrastructure projects, ensuring the quality and resilience of
infrastructure projects is critical to this goal. Specifically, the proposed
GFDRR activities will support P3PD’s
objective of “promoting climate-resilient village development planning
and spending, facilitating peer-to-peer exchange of climate-resilient village
innovations, and building climate awareness and preparedness of systems for
service delivery to villages in climate-sensitive regions.” The results of
activities proposed here will directly contribute to the formulation of
policies, as linked to Component 2.1, particularly related to the design and
technical assistance provided to villages for infrastructure projects. The
results will also feed into the newly added frontline services component in
helping improve coordination between different levels of government to ensure
climate resilience and sustainability of infrastructure investments linked to
district services, particularly for clean drinking water.
