At the request of USAID, the WCUprepared a budget to support the MWRI’s National Communication Strategy, and CherylGroff prepared a proposal for funding from Coca-Cola/USAID Water and DevelopmentAlliance (WADA).• Finalized work on 3 new illustrations by the artist Mohamed Sami for use in banners, posters,and other public awareness materials. An illustration on water quality for a poster is inprogress with another illustrator, Yasser Gaessa.• Produced a set of 12 banners/posters in English providing an overview of the IntegratedWater Resource Management Project for display at USAID and the project office. 12 flipbooksof the banners were prepared to introduce key stakeholders to the project. A sub-setof 10 banners were produced in Arabic and distributed to the MWRI, all IWRM Regional,Directorate, Under Secretary, and District offices. A sub-set of 3 banners were producedand distributed to each BCWUA.• Work on a package of public awareness materials to support Task 1.3 with the introductionof high-value, low-water consuming crops is underway, including a 12-page newspaper and a15- minute video for farmers. A 2 nd draft rough-cut video has been prepared and is in review.Prior to initiating work on these materials meetings were held with representatives ofMUCIA, ACDI/VOCA, and the GTZ Egyptian-German Water Resources ManagementReform Program to determine need. All Arabic publications on relevant topics availablefrom the Ministry of Agriculture have been collected for consideration as part of thematerials package for BCWUAs.• Briefing Books were prepared for the USAID/MWRI/MIC Field Visit, and the WCU videocrew /photographer participated on the first 2 days of the tour.• An IWRM East Delta map was produced and distributed to all Directorates, UnderSecretaries and IWMDs.• A prototype photographic wall display of all IWRM activities was produced for the projectoffice and is being considered for replication and distribution.• Periodic field visits to IWMDs and BCWUAs have been conducted throughout the year toobserve training, discuss communication needs, encourage IWMD staff and initiate gatheringof success stories for further dissemination.• 10-week (2 session / week) training for five WCU staff on the video editing program, FinalCut Pro, was started and will be completed in January 2011.Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 21

4. PROBLEMS AND ISSUESTASK 1.1: FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF BRANCH CANAL WATERUSER ASSOCIATIONSDuring Year 1 the process of establishing the new IWMD structures on the Directorate and Districtlevels took longer than anticipated and delayed the start of training for BCWUA formation. Thetraining is now well underway and the program is back on schedule at the end of Year 2. TheBCWUAs with the IWMDs are in the process of identifying maintenance priorities and preparingaction plans. Monitoring and reporting by BWWUAs on Branch Canal water supply will begin at theend of Year 3 as part of the participatory water management program.Establishing BCWUAs covering 1200 branch canals in eight Directorates is a challenging undertaking.Adaptive management techniques have been applied to ensure that:• Priority on available project resources is given to establish and activate the BCWUAs.• Limited project resources are leveraged to ensure well-functioning, sustainable BCWUAs inall the Districts of the targeted Directorates.• BCWUAs are in place regardless of the status of the revision of Law 12 and they can adjustas necessary in the event that Law 12 is approved, or a ministerial decree is issued, providinglegal status to the BCWUAs and giving them authority to raise revenues from their members.• BCWUA participate in water resources decision-making and maintenance of the waterconveyance infrastructure.Originally, the USAID funded Integrated Water Management Unit (IWMU) was expected to take thelead on behalf of MWRI. USAID funding was discontinued for the IWMU on 1 April 2010 and theIWMU was closed on 1 September 2010. The project is in the process of reviewing TA and budgetrequirements with USAID and MWRI to adjust procedures to replace the IWMU contribution. IRGhas now hired staff on leave without pay from MWRI to support this Task.Priority has been given to implementation of the BCWUAs activities. Success in completing theactivities on schedule continues to depend on full commitment and support by MWRI. It isimportant that IWMDs have fully staffed Water Advisory Teams. It is essential that Under secretariesand General Directors take an active role in the formation and development of the BCWUAs.MWRI is aware of these issues and is doing everything it can to help resolve any problems wheneverthey arise.TASK 1.2: SUSTAINABLE LOCAL FINANCING FOR CANAL AND DRAINMAINTENANCEThe project originally was waiting for the approval of the Amendment to Law 12 BCWUA beforefinalizing the cost sharing guidelines. MWRI has indicated that implementation on a pilot basis cango ahead through Ministerial decrees. To our knowledge no Ministerial decrees including for theFayoum Water Users Organisation Project have been issued to date allowing the BCWUAs to makecontracts, open a bank account, or to collect fees. The legality of such a decree is also in question.Cost sharing guidelines are now under preparation and will be submitted for approval during Year 3.However sustainable implementation of activities under this Task is dependent on the approval ofthe Amendment to Law 12 that, among other things, will provide legal status to BCWUAs allowingthem to make contracts, open a bank account, and to collect fees. The Amendment is currently withthe Peoples’ Assembly Agricultural & Irrigation Committee for review.Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 29


TASK 1.3: IMPROVEMENTS IN WATER PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCYAssessment of water productivity as one of the project objectives is not easy to monitor directly inthe project area. To show improvements in water productivity it will be important to demonstratechanges in cropping patterns that benefit farmers and save water. The shift in the cropping patternand its corresponding water use will be evaluated over the life of the project. However, the numberof feddan on which the cropping pattern will change is relatively insignificant given the entire projectarea. For the short term, the project will rely on the change in productivity at the demo sites and theselected interested BCWUAs.USAID is encouraging IWRM II to work with MALR entities, private sector and NGOs on this Task.The project will rely on MALR data for estimating the value for each crop rotation to show the"increase in water use efficiency". Collecting cropping pattern information will be through theinformation provided by the MALR. Focus group information will be used to verify the field data.BCWUAs will play a key role in the successful implementation of Task 1.3. Buyers would like to havea strong and legal entity to work with. Until BCWUAs are recognized legally the project will rely onthe linking BCWUAs and Agriculture Cooperatives.The rapid expansion of this initiative may also need to take into account concern among projecttechnical staff regarding the appropriate timing of introducing this HVC initiative to newly formedBCWUAs. This needs to be monitored and studied further to ensure that BCWUAs are able to meettheir roles and responsibilities first and foremost as water user associations.Procurement funds proposed for carrying out demonstration site activities for Task 1.3(Improvements in Water Productivity and Efficiency) were not approved by USAID. Therefore,IWRM II will continue investigating ways to leverage funds or maximize the use of existing programsfrom potential partners.TASK 1.4: WASTEWATER REUSEWastewater reuse is not a main activity under HCWW mandate nor does the agency have strongexperience in agriculture and agribusiness. The project completed the feasibility study on reuse oftreated wastewater; however HCWW was unable to encourage investors to participate through a freeand open tender process. IRG proposed the concept of pilot areas with a size of 1000 feddan,because this is deemed a minimum to interest potential investors. . HCWW requested that IRGdiscuss this concept with the HCWW Legal Committee. If the Committee accepts the IRG conceptthis will open the opportunity for working on two pilots managed by investors.Although the use of treated waste water for irrigating commercial crops is practiced worldwide, theagro climatic conditions, soil conditions, availability of inputs, yields, and value chain opportunitiesvary by location. Most of the crops allowed under the Egyptian Code for wastewater reuse are beinggrown in Egypt. However, based on initial field visits and discussions with research agencies there islimited scientific information on a number of critical items needed to properly evaluate economicreturns on these crops. In the absence of local data the project relied on data available frominternational sources.IWRM II, at the request of USAID, provided support to turn over operation of the three wastewatertreatment facilities constructed under the Global Development Alliance (GDA) for “EnvironmentalServices for Improving Water Quality Management in Rural Areas in Egypt” between Coca ColaAfrica Foundation, USAID, MWRI, IRG, and UNICEF implemented under IWRM I. The level ofeffort and resources used to support this transfer were not part of the original IWRM II contract.30 Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010)


TASK 2.2: FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF INTEGRATED WATERMANAGEMENT DISTRICTSThere are issues that still need to be addressed to ensure sustainable implementation of IWMDs. TheEgyptian Public Authority for Drainage Projects (EPADP) and the Irrigation Department (ID) haveagreed to transfer the drainage maintenance budget from EPADP Financial Department to IDFinancial Department for the purpose of maintaining and operating drainage facilities transferred tothe Integrated Water Management Directorates/Districts established under IWRM I & II. However,there are still some issues affecting integration of drainage activities at the District and Directoratelevels. Some of the larger drains remain under EPADP jurisdiction. Some of the drainage equipmenttransferred from EPADP to the newly formed IWMDs is in need of repair, but resources to affectthe needed repairs is lacking.To ensure sustainability MWRI has agreed to provide sufficient budget to support the expandedresponsibilities and roles of the newly formed IWMDs. However, the funds have either not beenrequested or released. MWRI is aware of this situation and is addressing these issues.Under the USAID Implementation Letter, IRG was dependent on IWMU to take a major role withimplementation of Task 2.2 activities. With the IWMU disbanded, additional TA resources will benecessary to support program implementation. The effects on the project budget and varioussolutions are under review.TASK 2.3: ESTABLISHMENT OF INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMSFOR SUSTAINABLE WATERDelays have occurred in the implementation of several of the planned Task 2.3 activities for variousreasons. Because the IWMDs were not established until August 2009 instead of April 2009 asoriginally expected, the introduction of the MISD, water quality, and groundwater activities werepostponed until Year 2. Delays were experienced during May & June 2010 because of a moratoriumby MWRI on training to allow field engineers to focus on water distribution during the peak summerseason. Another setback occurred when a waiver request to contract the MWRI Regional TrainingCenter for Water Studies (RTCWS) as a training provider was denied by USAID. Finally, with theending of USAID funding and the closing of the IWMU, delays have occurred while the projectsearched for alternative mechanisms to support the training programs and activities previouslycarried out by IWMU.Under agreement with MWRI in accordance with the USAID Implementation Letter, IWMU was totake a major role with implementation of several Task 2.3 activities. With the IWMU beingdisbanded these activities are by necessity being taken over by IRG. Additional TA resources will benecessary to support program implementation. The effects on the project budget are under reviewand proposed solutions are being developed. With support from USAID and MWRI it is hoped thatimplementation of the planned activities for Year 2 & 3 can be completed by the end of Year 3.TASK 2.4: CAPACITY BUILDING OF MWRI PERSONNELThere are issues that have limited implementation of this Task. Out of 50 MWRI personnelprogrammed for enrollment in the M.S. Program, only 36 were identified to by MWRI to participate.Only 20 of these persons were accepted and have been enrolled in M.S. programs.The M.S. degree at AUC requires two years for full-time graduate students if their English languageskills are strong enough to enable them to enroll directly in the M.S. program without extensiveEnglish language training. To date only one student selected had the required English languagecompetency. Others who were admitted to AUC had to complete the intensive language trainingAnnual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 31


program before starting degree related study. In addition, only three students have been either willingor approved for Leave-Without-Pay status from the MWRI. One qualified candidate accepted for theFall 2010 semester was not approved by MWRI and was required to drop the program. Three AUCcandidates were put on probationary status after completion of the Fall 2010 semester. Two of thesepersons are not on LWOP and both working and studying.It is unlikely that MWRI staff interested in participating in the AUC program, and not currentlyenrolled would be able to complete their degree before the end of the project (Sept. 2012). Therefore,no new applicants will be accepted to begin in Year 3 or 4. The only proposed exception for AUCwill be one student who is currently enrolled in the AUC Intensive English Program.For graduate students at the other local universities, usually 3 years are required to complete M.S.degrees attending on a part-time basis. The expenses of any students approved by the MWRIentering or continuing M.S. degrees at local universities will be covered up to the maximum of 50students.During Year 2, it became clear to both AUC and IRG that a fixed price Purchase Order was not aworkable contractual mechanism for this activity, and a new contract is with USAID contracts forapproval.USAID has decided to fund the remaining MWRI Study Tours through Coca-Cola/USAID Waterand Development Alliance (WADA). The project will assist USAID and MWRI as required butprime responsibility for the Study Tours will be with the WADA training provider (GlobalEnvironment & Technology Foundation-GETF).MONITORING AND EVALUATIONBecause the IWMD data systems are still being established all the outcome indicators for Year 1 and2 are not yet available. Relevant information such as water supply for Year 1 and 2, and waterdemand for Year 2 will be back calculated and included in future M&E reports.A number of steps are necessary before this data becomes available, so there will be delays in havingaccess to the data for M&E purposes. These steps include specifying IWMD boundaries, designatingauthorized measuring points for all significant inflows and outflows for each IWMD, developingrating curves for each measuring point, and computing water volumes from stage readings beingcollected as an ongoing function of the IWMDs. Likewise, linkage with local AgriculturalAdministration Unit and harmonization of MALR and MWRI boundaries is required before accuratecrop area data becomes available to the IWMDs. Fortunately, needed data on flows and on croppingpatterns can be computed retroactively, and so while there will be lags in reporting M&E informationbased on these data, a complete set of data should ultimately be available for all four years of theproject.EDUCATION, COMMUNICATION, PUBLIC AWARENESS ANDPARTICIPATIONGiven that the primary objectives of the IWRM II program are to build capacity and influence both waterusers and water suppliers to adopt new practices, strategic communication is viewed as key tosustainability of integrated water resource management. Communication is needed to rally and maintainsupport for the IWRM policy at the Central and Directorate levels; to motivate IWMD staff to practicedata based decision-making practices, and to value the benefits of water user participation; and to increasewater user participation in BCWUAs. Public awareness is needed to strengthen the associations, tomake the process increasingly representative and democratic, and to provide water users with theinformation needed to increase water productivity and improve water quality. Particularly in Year 3 with32 Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010)


the focus on activation of the BCWUAs, strengthening of IWMDs, and the promotion of the pilotinitiatives in High-value, low-water use crops, strategic communication is critical to success.An increase in effort is needed to support communication, particularly at the IWMD level. It is plannedthat in Year 3, selected members of the Water Advisory Teams be identified and trained to serve ascommunication specialists in their respective IWMDs and Directorates. IWRM II will provide specializedtrainings and follow-up with this cadre of Communication Specialists. The IRG Expat CommunicationConsultant will continue on a regular short term basis with support from various local communicationspecialists. IRG will also continue to search for a qualified senior local specialist acceptable to USAID tojoin the IWRM II TA team to provide long term support.TRAININGBecause of summer water shortages and the need to have district staff in the field full time, MWRIrequested all May & June 2010 training be postponed until July. This postponement delayedimplementation of certain components of the training program. MWRI is aware of this situation andis doing everything it can to help accelerate the training program. Improved proceduresrecommended by MWRI (Irrigation Department) for approval of training schedules and trainerswere implemented.Unfortunately, the Annual Year 2 Workshop scheduled for April 24 – 26 was postponed initially atthe request of MWRI and ultimately that of USAID. As a consequence the project was not affordedan opportunity to present the annual work plan to HE Minister and USAID for formal comment.Because the IWMU was dissolved and staff reassigned to other sectors in the Ministry, these personsare no longer available to assist with training activities.To continue to engage qualified MWRI staff in the project training programs and to ensuresustainability, IRG was hoping to have MWRI Regional Training Center for Water Studies (RTCWS)conduct a number of the training courses. Unfortunately, because of RTCWS’s status as agovernment organization, a waiver is required from USAID. USAID has informed IRG that theycannot support a sole source justification needed to approve the waiver. As a result the GIS DigitalMapping Course and Groundwater Monitoring Course scheduled for August were postponed.Potential training providers are being identified (MWRI staff, local firms, and local consultants) toconduct the following courses: Management Skills, Administration of Contracts, Water QualityDatabase, Groundwater Monitoring, Groundwater Database, Water Flow Calibration, Intro to GISDigital Mapping, and Digital Maps/BC Areas Survey.PROCUREMENTDuring Year 2 MWRI submitted additional equipment requirements for consideration. Sufficientfunds were available to cover these items, but USAID approval was denied on the grounds that allfuture procurements should be used to support the IWMDs and Directorates in the East DeltaRegion, not at the MWRI central level even though they have been supporting IWRM II. This will bereviewed during preparation of the Year 3 Procurement Plan update process.Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 33

International Resources GroupAnnex A: M&E Plan UpdatePerformance Monitoring PlanA Performance Monitoring Plan 1 (PMP) wasproduced in July 2009 to guide the M&Eprogram for the project. Its purpose was (a)to provide feedback to project managersduring project implementation and (b) toprovide a comprehensive and coherentinformation base which can be used to assessits outcomes. Definitions of some basicterms used in this report are shown in thebox at right. More detail can be found in thePMP.The PMP employs two types of indicators.Implementation (Process) indicators monitorthe progress of implementing the project.They deal with the pace of activitiesundertaken by the project. Outcome(Results) indicators assess the cumulativeeffects of project activities on the project’sobjectives.M&E DefinitionsA goal is a broad statement of what a program wouldlike to accomplish. It portrays a positive futurecondition.Objectives are specific, measurable, appropriate,realistic, and time-bound statements describing whatthe project hopes to accomplish.Indicators are objectively measurable gauges ofprogress toward achieving an objective or measuringthe impact of a specific intervention.Targets are specific values of indicators that theprogram wishes to achieve through its actions.A baseline provides a starting point from which tomeasure progress.The Year 1 Annual M&E report covers the period from 25 January 2009 to 31 December 2009,Years 2 and 3 will cover calendar years 2010 and 2011 respectively, and Year 4 will cover the period 1January 2012 through 30 September 2012, the project completion date. Outcome indicators, however,are related to agricultural seasons and so each annual report will cover the summer season of thatyear (May through September), along with the previous winter cropping season (October throughApril).Project ObjectivesIWRM II ObjectivesThe primary objectives of IWRM II, as given in the TaskOrder, are shown in the box at the right. To achieve theseobjectives, the project identifies eight principal tasks,which are shown below.1. Increased productivity of waterresources2. Increased efficiency of waterresources1. Formation and development of Branch Canal Water 3. More equitable allocation of waterUser Associations (BCWUAs)resources2. Sustainable local financing for canal and drainmaintenance4.

International Resources GroupAnnex A: M&E Plan UpdateAs explained in the PMP, project objectives serve as the basis for the Results indicators of projecteffectiveness. The 8 tasks, on the other hand, are the basis for the Implementation indicators.Table 1 shows the relationship between the 4 project objectives and the 8 project tasks. Majorcontributions to project objectives are shown by solid circles. Secondary contributions are shown byopen circles. Note that these are informal judgments by the author and not the result of a formalprocess. The table simply illustrates the nature of the relationship between the project’s objectivesand tasks and provides a basis for the M&E plan which follows.Project ObjectivesProject TasksIncreased productivity ofwater resourcesIncreased efficiency ofwater resourcesMore equitable allocation ofwater resources1 Formation and development of BCWUAs • • •2 Sustainable local financing for canal and drain maintenance ○ •3 Improvements in water productivity and efficiency • • •4 Wastewater reuse • ○5 Regional water management organizations ○ ○6 Formation of IWMDs ○ • •7 Establishment of information management systems ○ • • ○8 Capacity building of MWRI personnel • • •Improved water qualityTable 1 IWRM II Objectives and TasksImplementation IndicatorsImplementation indicators are used to monitor the execution of project activities. They monitor theinputs supplied by the project to achieve desired change. Because they are related directly to projectinputs, they can be keyed to the 8 project tasks shown in Table 1. Implementation indicators,organized by project task, are shown in Tables 2, and 3.Creation of the implementation indicators is simple and straightforward. Most are simply numbers ofoccurrences (e.g. “number of IWMDs with training centers established an equipped) which aresummed across Districts and reported against targets.Target values have been established for the four years of the project for these indicators, togetherwith a set of baseline values that represent pre-project conditions. In general, baseline values of theindicators used in this project will be zero. If necessary, targets will be adjusted as the projectprogresses.Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 37

Additional information is found inthe Year 3 Work plan of the project.Task 1.1: BCWUA FormationWater Advisory Teams were established in all 45 Districts and all 8 general directorates during Year1. During Year 2, a ministerial decree establishing all of the BCWUAs was issued. Maintenance planpreparation and water monitoring and reporting by BCWUAs was scheduled to begin on half of theBCWUAs during Year 2, but these activities have not yet been completed.Task 1.2: Sustainable Local FinancingThe use of a Ministerial decree to authorize BCWUAs to collect fees, make contracts, open bankaccounts is legally questionable. Instead of a draft Ministerial decree a new WUA Law was draftedand sent to the Cabinet in April 2010. It requires action by parliament before becoming effective,which is still pending. Cost sharing guidelines are not yet completed, pending enactment of theamendment to Law 12.Task 1.3: Water Productivity and EfficiencyThe target was for 300 farmers to have received training as of the end of Year 2. In practice, 502farmers received training.Task 1.4: Wastewater ReuseThe draft feasibility plan was completed in June and was reviewed informally by the HoldingCompany for Water and Wastewater (HCWW). It is awaiting a formal review meeting, which is tobe arranged by HCWW.38 Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010)

A second decree was also issued for each integrated directorate defining theboundaries of the integrated directorates and districts. A third decree was issued assigning all seniorstaff to the integrated directorates and districts. All 45 Integrated Districts have completed integratedmaintenance plans and all 45 have training rooms established and equipped. All 8 GeneralDirectorates have operational computer training centers. All 27 IWRM I IWMDs continue toparticipate in monthly coordination meetings.Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010) 39


International Resources GroupAnnex A: M&E Plan UpdateTask 2.3: Information Management System EstablishmentSeveral activities related to information management system establishment were scheduled forcompletion in Year 2 in all 45 Districts. These included calibrating canal structures, installing andemploying MISD software, and installing and employing water resource information systems.Water monitoring networks were established and calibration of the 138 inflow/outflow structures isongoing.An MISD spreadsheet for monitoring biweekly crop data was installed at all the integrated districts.This information is sent to the Central Directorate for Water Distribution and used to schedule waterdeliveries to the eight integrated directorates on a 10 day basis.Five out of six of the planned water resources information systems have been installed and areoperational (complaints, water levels, water quality, MISD, and BCWUA). The ground water database will be installed early in Year 3.Guidelines for completing the integrated water resources management plan have been distributed tothe eight directorates and 45 districts. IWRM II will provide training on both subjects and assist thedistricts and directorates prepare an annual integrated water resources management plan in Year 3.One BC has been equipped with a chart recorder to measure inflows, though none were called foruntil Year 3. The BC is one of the two pilot water productivity improvement BCs and thisinformation will be useful in measuring changes in water productivity on the pilot BC. It isrecommended that the other pilot BC also be equipped with a water level recorder or data logger assoon as possible and that any additional BCs added to the program be so equipped as well.Task 2.4: Capacity BuildingFor the university-level capacity building component, 36 candidates were originally identified in Year1 and 20 have been admitted and/or enrolled, 6 to American University of Cairo (AUC) and 14 tolocal universities. Because it generally takes 3 years to complete the course of study, including Englishlanguage training, it is unlikely that any additional candidates will participate in this program.40 Annual Report Year 2 (January – December 2010)
