The project will establish a project performance monitoring system (PPMS) which will show cause - and- effect relationships between the project and its impact, will be updated and reported quarterly, and may include Critical Path Method diagrams. Project performance monitoring & evaluation will be based on the design and monitoring frame work and the baseline surveys specified. Beneficiaries will be involved in project monitoring evaluation, through direct reporting to Project Implementation Unit (PMU). The indicators to be monitored will be formulated by and agreed upon with the executing agency , including indicators pertaining to physical progress and institutional reform activities. The PMCIU will gather disaggregated baseline physical and socio economic data, submit a detail implementation plan for monitoring performance and prepare benchmark information for ADB's review and concurrence within 9 months of loan and grant effectiveness. This will be reported quarterly through the executing agency's quarterly progress reports and after each ADB review mission. These quarterly reports will provide information necessary to update ADB's project performance reporting system.
NWSDB through the PMCIU, will monitor compliance with the covenants. Compliance with covenants will be monitored through ADB's Project Administration Missions - including project inception mission to discuss and confirm the timetable for compliance with the loan covenants; project review missions to review the borrower's compliance with the particular loan covenants and, where there is any non compliance or delay, discuss proposed remedial measures with the Government ; and midterm review missions if necessary to review covenants to assess whether they are still relevant or need to be changed , or waived due to changing circumstances.
Monitoring of the resettlement plan will be undertaken throughout the project period by the PMCIU. This will begin during the pre- construction period to comply with ADB's policy that full compensation for resettlement impacts must be provided before physical or economic displacement occurs.
Environmental monitoring committee will be formed consisting of representatives based in the locations of proposed activities, authorities that have legal jurisdiction over concerned activities or premises and communities to be affected by construction or operation of the sub projects. These committees will monitor local implementation of the project during the construction and O&M phases, in addition to the more structured monitoring activities of the Design and Supervision Consultants Environmental Specialist and PMCIU Environmental Monitoring Officers. This will ensure a cross check of monitoring by PMCIU.
The Gender Action Plan (GAP) and Participation and Community Mobilization Plan will be implemented, monitored and reported by the PMCIU. Implementation of the GAP will be reported as part of the progress reports; and monitoring of the PCMP will be done through quarterly NGO reports submitted in parallel with the Project's progress reports.
The Government and ADB will jointly assess Project Implementation semiannually. The Government, PMCIU and ADB will conduct a comprehensive midterm review 3 years after the project starts or after construction of the sewage treatment plant and treated water mains has been initiated, whichever is sooner. The reviews will
1. Examine the appropriateness of scope, design, implementation arrangements and schedules of activities.
2. Identify changes needed since project appraisal.
3. Assess implementation performance against Project Indicators
4. Establish compliance with loan covenants
5. Identify problems, constraints, and, if necessary recommend changes in the design or implementation arrangements
6. Monitor the effectiveness of safeguard procedures.
Within the 6 months of physical completion of the project the executing agency will submit a project completion report to ADB.
