4. PROBLEMS AND ISSUES<br />

TASK 1.1: FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF BRANCH CANAL <strong>WATER</strong><br />

USER ASSOCIATIONS<br />

The target is large— coverage of 1200 branch canals in 45 Districts and 8 Directorates—but<br />

achievable. IWRM I developed a practical, effective and efficient mobilization approach which will<br />

continue to be the vehicle for formation of BCWUAs. The original approach was to create all of the<br />

BCWUAs within the first year of the project and build capacity in subsequent years. The process of<br />

establishing the new integrated water management structures on the Directorate and District levels<br />

took longer than anticipated. This delayed the assignment of water advisory teams (WAT). This in<br />

turn delayed the start of training for BCWUA formation. Although the target of establishing 50% of<br />

the new BCWUAS to be created in the East Delta by the end of Year 1 was not met, considerable<br />

progress has been made towards achieving the goal. Initial (Orientation and Preparation) training<br />

materials were reviewed, updated and delivered by the end of October, 2009. During November, the<br />

District Water Advisory Teams collected the data needed to determine the boundaries of BCWUAs.<br />

Establishment Training was given to all teams in December, 2009 and all teams will be in the field<br />

mobilizing prospective BCWUA members in January. The current target is to have 100%<br />

establishment and Boards elected and functioning by end April, 2010.<br />

Competition among resources and IWMD staff time for other activities needs to be monitored.<br />

MWRI staff must understand that formation of the BCWUAs is an MWRI policy and a project<br />

priority. This must be emphasized at all levels and continually made clear at the monthly Directorate<br />

staff meetings.<br />

IWMU is expected to play a major role in the implementation of Task 1.1 on behalf of the project<br />

and MWRI. Success in completing the remaining activities on schedule depends on obtaining the full<br />

commitment and support by IWMU. Priority will be given to implementation of the BCWUAs<br />

activities during Year 2. Progress will be carefully monitored. A review will be made of additional<br />

resources and options available to support the task, and if necessary additional TA resources and<br />

training will be provided to support the implementation program.<br />

Water user association (WUA) concepts are not new in the East Delta, due to earlier pilot activities<br />

and some initiatives of different Directorates. The task of creating BCWUAs may be easier in the<br />

new lands than in the established areas. This issue needs careful monitoring to determine if there are<br />

differences in new and old areas in terms or farmer responses and farmer needs, and be prepared to<br />

tailor activation and follow up activities, accordingly. Where WUA exist these organizations should<br />

be left intact and encouraged to maintain their established routines and traditions, adding new<br />

responsibilities, if appropriate, to maintain consistency throughout the area.<br />

The survey of BCWUAs and District Engineers from IWRM I although useful in some ways did not<br />

provide sufficient information in identifying concrete needs for follow-up support to the BCWUAs<br />

(600) formed under IWRM I. Although the survey did determine the level of “participatory water<br />

management” by the various IWMDs/BCWUAs and identified strengths and weaknesses in the<br />

cooperation between MWRI and the BCWUAs regarding O&M, it fell short in identifying the<br />

differences between the more successful BCWUAs and the less successful BCWUAs. To formulate<br />

more specific recommendations it has been suggested that focus groups to identify characteristics of<br />

the most successful groups as well as the constraints and impediments faced by the least successful<br />

ones be conducted during Year 2 in each of the IWRM I Directorates. This is under review.<br />

Annual Report Year 1 (January – December 2009) 21


TASK 1.2: SUSTAINABLE LOCAL FINANCING FOR CANAL AND DRAIN<br />

MAINTENANCE<br />

IWRM <strong>II</strong> is mandated to introduce cost-sharing by users at the branch canal level. The concept of<br />

cost-sharing being proposed under IWRM <strong>II</strong> is different from the standard notion of cost recovery,<br />

which usually means that the BCWUA should generate revenues to pay for maintenance on behalf of<br />

an irrigation authority. In sharp contrast to the traditional cost recovery approach that focuses on<br />

extracting payments from water users, this approach essentially shares with the BCWUA an existing<br />

MWRI maintenance budget that would otherwise be spent on maintenance contracts. BCWUAs will<br />

still be encouraged to generate resources to undertake repair and maintenance activities that they<br />

deem to be important; however the major effort will be to encourage participation in cost-sharing for<br />

O&M, rather than traditional cost recovery. The cost sharing approaches developed under the APRP<br />

Water Policy Reform Project and introduced by the Fayoum Water User Organization Project are<br />

excellent starting points to engage BCWUAs actively in decision making and planning and carrying<br />

out maintenance works.<br />

The project will approach the cost-sharing issue in two different ways. First, IWRM <strong>II</strong> will continue<br />

to encourage BCWUAs to assume that there are no practical restrictions on their activity—they do<br />

not have to wait for official sanction to take decisions and actions that serve their members. The<br />

second part of the approach will be to incorporate the concepts of cost-sharing and turnover into<br />

training at all levels and continually update the training materials to utilize new experiences and the<br />

findings of assessments, both ours and others.<br />

The effective implementation of this activity depends on amendment of Law 12 allowing legal stature<br />

of BCWUAs. H.E. Minister MWRI decided to reorganize Law 12 and a separate Law on<br />

Stakeholder Participation was prepared and submitted to the Cabinet. This law covers the necessary<br />

legal framework necessary to initiate sustainable local financing for canal and drain maintenance; if<br />

approved this will facilitate the implementation of Task 1.2<br />

The target for Year 1 was to draft a Ministerial Decree on participation. The result has been more<br />

significant: a draft law on participation in water resources management was approved by the Cabinet<br />

for submittal to the People’s Assembly. Similarly, the plan was to review cost sharing mechanisms<br />

and develop guidelines during Year 2. Instead, the review has taken place in Year 1 and guidelines<br />

should be completed during the second quarter of Year 2. Awareness raising and training will start<br />

simultaneously.<br />

TASK 1.3: IMPROVEMENTS IN <strong>WATER</strong> PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCY<br />

USAID requested that Ken Swanberg, DCOP/Ag Economist, be replaced in May 2009. This activity<br />

was under direct supervision of Dr. Swanberg. As a result of this decision Dr. Wadie Fahim<br />

Mankarious (LTTA Senior Organization/Institutional Development Specialist) was appointed<br />

coordinator for this task. This resulted in major adjustments in the program and a revision of the<br />

original work plan.<br />

To show improvements in water productivity it will be important to demonstrate that changes in<br />

cropping patterns can benefit farmers and save water. The shift in the cropping pattern and its<br />

corresponding water use will be evaluated over the life of the project. By estimating the value for<br />

each crop rotation we should be able to show the "increase in water use efficiency". Collecting<br />

cropping pattern information on the recommended "crop rotations" and determining the cropped<br />

area for each dominate crop grown by region will not be an easy task. Focus group information will<br />

be used to verify the field data.<br />

22 Annual Report Year 1 (January – December 2009)


BCWUAs will play a key role in the successful implementation of Task 1.3. Until BCWUAs are<br />

formed in the 8 project target directorates in the East Delta, initial efforts will focus on a BCWUAs<br />

formed under IWRM I in West Sharkiya Directorate. Experience and lessons learned will be<br />

transferred and extended to other East Delta Directorates after establishment of the new BCWUAs.<br />

USAID is encouraging IWRM <strong>II</strong> to work with MALR entities, private sector and NGOs on this task.<br />

Procurement funds proposed for carrying out demonstration site activities for Task 1.3<br />

(Improvements in Water Productivity and Efficiency) were not approved by USAID. Therefore<br />

IWRM <strong>II</strong> is investigating ways to leverage funds or maximize the use of existing programs from<br />

potential partners.<br />

TASK 1.4: WASTE<strong>WATER</strong> REUSE<br />

USAID requested that Ken Swanberg, DCOP/Ag Economist, be replaced in May 2009. This activity<br />

was under direct supervision of Dr. Swanberg. As a result of this decision Dr. Wadie Fahim<br />

Mankarious (LTTA Senior Organization/Institutional Development Specialist) was appointed<br />

coordinator for this task. This has resulted in some delays in the original implementation schedule.<br />

MWRI Steering Committee decided that a separate steering committee for Task 1-4 was not required.<br />

As a consequence the project has relied on USAID to assist in helping with coordination with<br />

HCWW and other GOE entities.<br />

Although the use of treated waste water for irrigating commercial crops is practiced worldwide, the<br />

agro climatic conditions, soil conditions, availability of inputs, yields, and value chain opportunities<br />

vary by location. Most of the crops allowed under the Egyptian Code for wastewater reuse are being<br />

grown in Egypt. However, based on initial field visits and discussions with research agencies there is<br />

limited scientific information on a number of critical items needed for properly evaluating economic<br />

returns of these crops. In the absence of local data we will rely on data available form international<br />

sources.<br />

A number of the stakeholders including HCWW and World Bank have made it clear that they are not<br />

interested in focusing on trees as a potential commercial enterprise for waste water reuse.<br />

Initial analysis for the major crop, Jatropha, being promoted by stakeholders as having high potential<br />

for attracting private investors, shows a marginal rate of return under current international fuel price<br />

levels.<br />

Even though the HCWW has started a tendering process for private investment for waste water<br />

reuse, IWRM <strong>II</strong> will continue to prepare the waste water reuse feasibility study in accordance with<br />

the USAID contract.<br />

IWRM <strong>II</strong> at the request of USAID has continued to support the turnover activities of the three<br />

wastewater treatment facilities constructed under the Global Development Alliance (GDA) for<br />

“Environmental Services for Improving Water Quality Management in Rural Areas in Egypt”<br />

between Coca Cola Africa Foundation, USAID, MWRI, IRG, and UNICEF implemented under<br />

IWRM I. The level of effort and resources used to support this activity were not part of the original<br />

work plan and/or project budget.<br />

TASK 2.1: REGIONAL <strong>WATER</strong> <strong>MANAGEMENT</strong> ORGANIZATIONS<br />

The position of MWRI towards regional authorities remains under review. IWRM <strong>II</strong> is relying on<br />

IRU to clarify the MWRI model for implementing RWMO. Until this model is decided, all IWRM <strong>II</strong><br />

efforts will focus on providing support and assistance to MWRI and the IRU in selecting the<br />

appropriate RWMO model. A workshop is expected to be held early in 2010 to decide this issue.<br />

Annual Report Year 1 (January – December 2009) 23


TASK 2.2: FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF <strong>INTEGRATED</strong> <strong>WATER</strong><br />

<strong>MANAGEMENT</strong> DISTRICTS<br />

There was initially some delay in signing the decree forming the 45 IWMDs and 8 IWM Directorates<br />

(May 2009); as well as the decrees assigning District Managers (July 2009) and other key staff (August<br />

2009). This affected startup of training and supply of equipment to the newly formed IWMDs.<br />

MWRI decided to postpone the consolidation of the Drainage and Irrigation Directorates into one<br />

Integrated Water Management Directorate. The affects of this decision on implementation of the<br />

program are being monitored.<br />

Most of the IWMD offices are in need of maintenance. Several of the offices need furniture.<br />

Drainage equipment has been transferred to the newly formed IWMDs. However much of the<br />

equipment is in need of repair. Ismailia General Directorate is suffering from staff shortages. To<br />

ensure sustainability MWRI should provide sufficient budget to support the expanded responsibilities<br />

and roles of the newly formed IWMDs. MWRI is aware of this situation and is addressing these<br />

issues.<br />

TASK 2.3: ESTABLISHMENT OF INFORMATION <strong>MANAGEMENT</strong> SYSTEMS<br />

FOR SUSTAINABLE <strong>WATER</strong><br />

Although considerable progress was made on Task 2.3, it was less than originally planned. Similar to<br />

several of the other tasks, the delay in issuing the decrees forming the IWMDs and assigning staff<br />

affected the establishment of IWMD information systems. The major affect was on the<br />

establishment of the water resources databases. Only 2/5 (water level & complaints) were<br />

customized and installed. The introduction of the MISD, water quality, and groundwater databases<br />

was postponed until Year 2. With the expected support from the MWRI organizations responsible<br />

for each of these databases the project activities should be able to catch up during Year 2.<br />

The restriction of GIS data sharing between IWMU and the IRG team was a problem under IWRM<br />

I. It will be difficult, if not impossible, for IRG and its partners to work with the MWRI staff on GIS<br />

and digital mapping activities without sharing vector and raster data collected from the IWMDs.<br />

MWRI is aware of the problem. If data sharing becomes a problem under IWRM <strong>II</strong> then more<br />

formal discussions between USAID and MWRI on sharing and releasing data collected under project<br />

funding may be necessary.<br />

Task 2.4: CAPACITY BUILDING OF MWRI PERSONNEL<br />

Initial results of the training needs assessment show that there are a limited number of qualified<br />

candidates from the East Delta Region able to meet the AUC graduate admission standards. Out of<br />

50 MWRI personnel expected to enroll in MS programs 36 have been identified by MWRI. It is<br />

expected that 5 persons will be enrolled at AUC and 10 persons will be registered at local universities<br />

by January 2010. The MS degree at AUC takes two years for full time graduate students and at least<br />

three years for local universities part time. This means that 35 additional MWRI staff should be<br />

identified and registered during year 2010 in order to finish before the end of the project (Sept. 2012).<br />

Many of the qualified candidates have indicated a preference to enroll in a part time program and not<br />

to take leave from their MWRI job to attend as full-time graduate students. Arrangements are being<br />

made for AUC selected trainees to receive support funding so they can take leave from their MWRI<br />

positions to enable them to pursue their MS programs on a full time basis and complete their degree<br />

requirements before the end of the project.<br />

24 Annual Report Year 1 (January – December 2009)


At the request of MWRI and USAID Short Term Overseas Study Tours for 50 persons will be added<br />

to the IWRM <strong>II</strong> program. This was not included in the original training budget and will require a<br />

reallocation of funds.<br />

MONITORING AND EVALUATION<br />

Because the IWMD data systems are still being established the outcome indicators for Year 1 are not<br />

yet available. Relevant information such as water supply and demand for Year 1 will be back<br />

calculated and included in future M&E reports.<br />

EDUCATION, COMMUNICATION, PUBLIC AWARENESS AND<br />

PARTICIPATION<br />

The project was unsuccessful in identifying a qualified person for local public awareness and<br />

communication specialist acceptable to USAID. Because of this IWRM <strong>II</strong> is behind in producing<br />

startup materials such as project brochures. To address this problem USAID has agreed to allow the<br />

project to bring in an Expat communication specialist for 1 year to support the project.<br />

TRAINING<br />

The IWRM <strong>II</strong> training program assumed that IWMDs would be formed within the first quarter of<br />

Year 1. The delay in establishing the IWMDs and identifying and officially assigning staff affected the<br />

original training schedule. The training program has been revised to adjust to the delays.<br />

PROCUREMENT<br />

The IWRM <strong>II</strong> procurement program assumed that IWMDs would be formed within the first quarter<br />

of Year 1. The delay in establishing the IWMDs and identifying & officially assigning staff affected<br />

the original procurement schedule. The delivery schedule was revised to adjust to the delays in<br />

forming IWMDs and assigning staff.<br />

Annex A: M&E Plan Update<br />

Performance Monitoring Plan<br />

A Performance Monitoring Plan 1 (PMP) was<br />

produced in July 2009 to guide the M&E<br />

program for the project. Its purpose was (a)<br />

to provide feedback to project managers<br />

during project implementation and (b) to<br />

provide a comprehensive and coherent<br />

information base which can be used to assess<br />

its outcomes. Definitions of some basic<br />

terms used in this report are shown in the<br />

box at right. More detail can be found in the<br />

PMP.<br />

The PMP employs two types of indicators.<br />

Implementation (Process) indicators monitor<br />

the progress of implementing the project.<br />

They deal with the pace of activities<br />

undertaken by the project. Outcome<br />

(Results) indicators assess the cumulative<br />

effects of project activities on the project’s<br />

objectives.<br />

M&E Definitions<br />

A goal is a broad statement of what a program would<br />

like to accomplish. It portrays a positive future<br />

condition.<br />

Objectives are specific, measurable, appropriate,<br />

realistic, and time-bound statements describing what<br />

the project hopes to accomplish.<br />

Indicators are objectively measurable gauges of<br />

progress toward achieving an objective or measuring<br />

the impact of a specific intervention.<br />

Targets are specific values of indicators that the<br />

program wishes to achieve through its actions.<br />

A baseline provides a starting point from which to<br />

measure progress.<br />

The Year 1 Annual M&E report will covers the period from 25 January 2009 to 31 December 2009,<br />

Years 2 and 3 will cover calendar years 2010 and 2011 respectively, and Year 4 will cover the period 1<br />

January 2012 through 30 September 2012, the project completion date.<br />

Project Objectives<br />

The primary objectives of IWRM <strong>II</strong>, as given in the Task<br />

Order, are shown in the box at the right. To achieve these<br />

objectives, the project identifies eight principal tasks,<br />

which are shown below.<br />

1. Formation and development of Branch Canal Water<br />

User Associations (BCWUAs)<br />

2. Sustainable local financing for canal and drain<br />

maintenance<br />

3. Improvements in water productivity and efficiency<br />

4. Wastewater reuse<br />

5. Regional water management organizations<br />

6. Formation of Integrated Water Management Districts (IWMDs)<br />

7. Establishment of information management systems<br />

8. Capacity building of MWRI personnel<br />

IWRM <strong>II</strong> Objectives<br />

1. Increased productivity of water<br />

resources<br />

2. Increased efficiency of water<br />

resources<br />

3. More equitable allocation of water<br />

resources<br />

4. Improved water quality<br />

As explained in the PMP, project objectives serve as the basis for the Results indicators of project<br />

effectiveness. The 8 tasks, on the other hand, are the basis for the Implementation indicators.<br />

Table 1 shows the relationship between the 4 project objectives and the 8 project tasks. Major<br />

contributions to project objectives are shown by solid circles. Secondary contributions are shown by<br />

open circles. Note that these are informal judgments by the author and not the result of a formal<br />

Table 1 IWRM <strong>II</strong> Objectives and Tasks<br />

Implementation Indicators<br />

Implementation indicators are used to monitor the execution of project activities. They monitor the<br />

inputs supplied by the project to achieve desired change. Because they are related directly to project<br />

inputs, they can be keyed to the 8 project tasks shown in Table 1. Implementation indicators,<br />

organized by project task, are shown in Tables 2, and 3.<br />

Creation of the implementation indicators is simple and straightforward. Most are simply numbers of<br />

occurrences (e.g. “number of IWMDs with training centers established an equipped) which are<br />

summed across Districts and reported against targets.<br />

Target values have been established for the four years of the project for these indicators, together<br />

with a set of baseline values that represent pre-project conditions. In general, baseline values of the<br />

indicators used in this project will be zero. If necessary, targets will be adjusted as the project<br />

progresses.<br />
