2 Scope of Work
General Parameters
This ToR has been provided to articulate MCA-Indonesias expected focus, direction and
organization of the consulting work undertaken though this TAPP Grant. It is not meant to limit any
necessary review, except where specified, of any Project proposal to be funded by MCA-Indonesia. It
is the responsibility of the Grantee to provide MCA-Indonesia with information related to:
Capability of the proposed Project design and construction to meet production and operation
Conformance of the Project with good engineering practice and industry standards (design
criteria). As per the CfP, the relevant standards are PLNs engineering, construction and
operating standards;
Sufficiency of the Project structure related to construction and operations; Adequacy of the
inputs, parameters, assumptions, and reasoning of the Project pro forma analysis;
Risk assessments and allocation of risks to the Project, to local communities, and to the natural
Examination of the logistics in delivery of all construction plan, equipment, construction materials,
etc. to ensure that the Project can be constructed and operated.
At all times, the overriding conditions of the Project as declared in the CfP should be adhered to.
It is expected that the Deliverables of the assignment funded through TAPP Grants shall include
reports with text, duly supported by underlying data, calculations and analysis. Besides this ToR,
please also refer to the CfP for further details on expected work. These shall include, but not be limited
to, the following:
(1) Cost/benefit analysis and Economic Rate of Return (ERR) in excel format split out in years 1-20
as well as a separate tab with the cost estimate for required Project inputs that the RE Grant
will support, split out by: Project management, training and reporting; civil works; plant
and equipment (mechanical and electrical equipment);

Identified Gaps
Through Technical Appraisal Panel (TAP) and Project Survey Visit activities, MCA-Indonesia has
identified some key gaps within the project and/or its project preparation documents. These are listed
below. MCA-Indonesia does not claim that this list is exhaustive and expects the Detailed Project
Review to place forth a comprehensive description of the key gaps.

2.2.1 Technical Gaps

1) Weakness on COD Analysis/Study, Energy Analysis, Topography Data and Geotechnical
Study. The availability of Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB) supply is from own plantation and also
depends on external suppliers. Even though the mill is under expansion from 30 TPH to 60
TPH, the historical FFB data shows a declining trend and feedstock security is an issue.
Within the COD analysis, there is neither description nor data that the POME (Palm Oil Mill
Effluent) flow rate has been measured by flow meter. There is also lack information on POME
COD level data. Thus, the energy analysis becomes inconsistent in regards to potential power
generation. It is not clear potential power generation in MWh/year will be sold to PLN and
parasitic load biogas system including gas engines. Topography analysis data is not clear.
Geotechnical Study has not been carried out. In general the project uses an outdated
Feasibility Study. So it is necessary recalculate the proposed power plant capacity to match
the availability of feedstock
2) Weakness on Basic Design, Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Financial Analysis,
Detail CAPEX and OPEX calculation to optime the invesment.
3) Weakness on Project Milestone and Schedule.
4) No Interconnection Study.

2.2.2 Environmental & Social Gaps

1) The project is currently under process to obtaining the UKL-UPL document and
environmental permit approval from Muaro Jambi District government.
2) No land acquisition is needed. The biogas (POME) power plant facilities will develop in
company own land. However, it is necessary to ensure that the land acquisition process of
the existing land is clear and no potential conflict with others parties.
3) The feasibility study document provided a limited information on environmental and
social impacts like economy, environmental and technology transfer.
4) Due to unavailability of UKL-UPL document during the technical review stage, then due
diligence should be conducted prior to Grant Agreement.
5) A gap analysis is required to ensure that the project will meet the IFC Performance
Standards and other related study
6) The project must strengthen the ESIA/ESMS document to accommodate the aspect which
is not covered in UKL-UPL, such as organization capacity and competency, LARAP, IP study,
stakeholder engagement and grievance mechanism.
7) Limited information of pollution prevention in FS document such as the mitigation in
construction and operation of biogas plant for air pollution and waste water leaking.

2.2.3 Social and Gender Gaps

1) The proposal SGIP is developed with a sufficient preliminary Social and Gender Assessment.
The benefit sharing is not clearly presented. The target is set as 7% for the community to get
the benefit and fund for much needed assistance.
2) There are key social issues such as the oil palm plantation has the contribution to change the
farming behavior from traditional farmer to day laborers.

Section 1
Insert Section Title

3) Is there any potential conflict between the Melayu Jambi and Javenese in terms of access and
benefit? How the project will address this in the project design and approach, especially with
regards to jobs creation in POME?
4) Affordability of the estimated IDR 75,000/month electricity cost needs to be investigated.
5) A committed community development plan as required to meet MCA-Indonesias goals has
not been set up, it has to be in coordination with local people including marginalized people
and women.
6) The project ensures that local people, vulnerable community, and women will be involved in
community development plan.
7) Support livelihood alternative
8) Employment creation: during construction phase there will be construction jobs, and around
10 12 local people will be hired as permanent staff for energy project.
9) Benefit sharing is done through CSR, through capacity building and initiate household to
adopt strategies of lumbung pangan and economic development for women.
10) The SGIP mentions that collaboration with local NGOs and organizations will be forged in the
implementation of social inclusion and gender targeted activities.

6 Lifescape-Landscape (L-L), Environment,

Social and Gender Analysis
L-L Analysis
The Landscape-Lifescape (L-L) Analysis is an operational tool derived from the integration of the
Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) and the Social and Gender Integration Plan
(SGIP). A landscape is a socio-economic and agro-ecological system that consists of natural and/or
human- modified ecosystems, with a configuration of topography, agricultural lands, waterbodies, vegetation, land use, and settlements that is influenced by the ecological, historical, economic
and cultural processes and activities of the area. Landscape boundaries may be discrete, correspond
to watershed or sub-watershed boundaries, distinct land features, and/or jurisdictional boundaries,
or across such demarcations. Landscape management units are typically clusters of villages nested
within larger yet agro-ecologically and socio-economically comparable areas for any potential
future scale-up. Landscape Analysis is an assessment of the geographical area in which the
proposed GP investments will be implemented and includes desk review and mapping of the
natural resources and land use pattern in the GP Project location areas. The Project location will be
called Investment Landscape (IL), while the surrounding environment impacting on IL will be called
Development Landscape (DL). Lifescape Analysis is a participatory assessment of the people (women,
men and different social groups), institutions (formal and informal) and relationships within, and
with, the landscape. The analysis seeks to understand how social structures and social context affect
the livelihoods of communities and, in turn, shape the natural resources and the potential to manage
them well within a particular landscape. This analysis identifies key social and gender constraints of
proposed GP Project, how to mitigate risks of social jealousy/conflict, and reduce elite capture of
In addition to the L-L Analysis Grantees are required to carry out a Project-specific Environment and
Social Impacts Assessment (ESIA). Details on the GP ESMS Tier 2 and ESIA can be found at Depending on
scale and location, the Project might also require an Environmental permit (Ijin Lingkungan), and
necessary assessment (AMDAL or UKL/UPL), or Letter of Commitment for Environmental
Management (SPPL). ESIA is conducted on the basis of the ESDS, and response to GoI and MCC
requirements. The ESIA identifies Project specific environmental and social risks to be mitigated and
these will be included in an ESMP as a compliance tool. Among other things, the L-L Analysis will be
informed by the findings of the ESIA. L-L Analysis and ESIA can be done together or in parallel,
depending on Grantee resources and staffing structure.
Together with the ESIA, the L-L Analysis will strengthen social and economic viability by ensuring
(1) adequate sources of human, social and natural capital, (2) safeguards against unintended or
uninformed social and environmental consequences, and (3) social inclusivity to reduce the risk of
divisive social jealousy for any local communities feeling excluded from the Project. It provides
relevant and practical information to Grantees and other stakeholders about the existing natural
resources, people, their livelihood, institutions and relationships as well as the dynamic relationship
between investment and its surrounding development landscape. The methodology and tasks for
conducting L-L Analysis is the subject of this Guidance and in the following sections.


Section 1
Insert Section Title

This Guidance builds off the approved methodology and budget provided in the proposal.

6.1.1 Scope of L-L Analysis

The L-L Analysis is an adaptive, dynamic and iterative operational tool that should operate
throughout the Project development cycle in order to facilitate any needed Project design
adjustment both in the early implementation/start-up phase as well as during the life of the Project as
appropriate. Completing the L-L Analysis and the findings report (using the required template in
Section Error! Reference source not found. below) initially provides a snapshot for a priori risk
identification and improvement of Project design. New major policies and programs, severe weather
events etc., however, may affect the L-L during implementation, and in that case, the analysis should
serve as a tool to inform prompt appropriate adjustments to implementation including the
deployment of mitigation measures.
Applicants are required to conduct an in-depth L-L Analysis no later than 3 months from the date of
effectiveness of the TAPP Agreement in order to improve/expand the preliminary gender, social and
environmental analysis (and accompanying maps) provided in the proposal and inform final detailed
Project design and content/approach of required technical support.
The tasks required for conducting L-L Analysis can be found in Section 6.4 below. The L-L Results
Template in Section 6.5, provides the required format to present the findings of the L-L analysis
indicating how the landscape and the Lifescape upon which the GP investment depends and which in
turn is affected by it in ways which simultaneously and sustainably reduce poverty through local
economic growth as well as reducing carbon emissions. References can be made to more detailed
relevant studies, maps, photos, and other illustrations presented at the end of the template.
Investment-relevant results are placed in the template boxes provided each with guiding topics and
questions. The preferred methodology and indicative tool kit for conducting field work is provided.
There are four (4) sets of tasks required to complete the L-L Analysis, including a desk literature
review and participatory rural field work as described in more detail below.


Section 1
Insert Section Title

Task 1: Finalize Work Plan and Methodology

Building on the preliminary environment, social and gender analysis, finalize the proposed L-L
Analysis Work plan and Budget included in the proposal. This will include confirming key members of
the L-L Analysis implementation team, including structure and composition of the field team and
finalizing the detailed methodology and sampling framework.
Task 2: Conduct Desk Literature Review
As the first phase of the L-L Analysis, conduct a literature review in order to identify any/all critical
information on the environmental, social, economic and institutional conditions and challenges within
the Project location (investment landscape) that need to be addressed in order to implement a
successful GP Technical Assistance and Project Preparation Project. The team conducting the L-L
Analysis should compile all relevant background information from secondary sources to identify gaps
needing primary field research to avoid unnecessary or duplicative efforts. In addition, MCA will
provide Grantee with all existing GP-related information and studies including DRAs; when available,
district level strategic environmental assessments (SEAs); and PLUP activities and mapping exercises.
This first phase desk review will include review of the literature on communities, their economic
activities, institutions, topography and natural resources. Many helpful studies and tools already
completed by other donors, NGOs and governments that are needed to conduct an L-L Analysis can be
found at These include published strategic
environmental assessment (SEA), environment and social impact assessment (ESIA),
environmental impact assessment (EIA), social and gender assessment, institutional and
stakeholder assessment, Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data, Living Standards
Measurement Surveys (LSMS), Poverty impact assessments, CFPRI intra-household and food
security data, migration data carried out by government, donors, academic and research institution.
In addition to the website, NGOs active in Indonesia will be very willing to provide available literature.
As part of the MCA Indonesia District Readiness Assessment (DRA), SEAs have been conducted on four
(starter) districts for MCA Indonesia, including Mamuju. The SEAs also included ecosystem valuation
based case studies. These documents, together with other preparatory studies conducted for the
GP Project can be found at
DRAs have been completed on the following districts (Solok Selatan, Pesisir Selatan, Luwu Utara, Luwu
Timur, Kolaka, Kolaka Utara, Malinau, Mahakam Ulu, Berau, Kapuas Hulu and Sintang).
MCA Indonesias outline of the landscape-based approach is available at
Task 3: Conduct Fieldwork:
The second phase of the L-L Analysis will involve fieldwork to be undertaken in representative
sample locations to validate the desk review findings, understand challenges and risks at the field
level, appraise both successful and failing similar and related programs for understanding key
issues in order support the development and inclusion of key need based interventions, an inclusive
and effective beneficiary selection and stakeholder involvement process. The key stakeholder
groups should also include communities protecting the forest and water resources upland. The
process for mobilizing to conduct field work includes:

6.5Error! Reference source not found. Results Template provides an outline of the minimum
required topics to be included in the analysis. More topics can be added into the analysis as needed to
get detailed information for identifying key areas of activities, including strategy/approach for
coordinating with other similar programs near/in target districts and sub-districts, targeting and
selecting beneficiaries within those sub-districts and villages, community participation and
agreement, governance mechanism, and promoting sustainability of outcomes.

6.1.2 Indicative Tool Package for Field Work

Various participatory rural appraisal (PRA) tools such as focus group discussion (FGDs); key
informant interview (KIIs); natural resource mapping, participatory community/social mapping;
livelihood mapping, vulnerability and trend analysis; transect walk; and participant observation will
be used for L-L analysis. The teams/firms working on L-L Analysis need to develop a field guide on

b. Transect walks and direct observation. These are systematic walks with key informants through
the area of interest, observing, asking, listening, looking, and seeking problems and solutions.

Key informants interview (KII). This is guided interviewing and listening in which only some of
the questions and topics are predetermined; other questions arise during the interview. Using a
guide or checklist, the multidisciplinary team poses open-ended questions and probes topics as
they arise. New avenues of questioning are pursued as the interview develops. KIIs are a central
part of all participatory methods.

Environment and Social Requirements

As one of the three main Projects under the Indonesia Compact, the Green Prosperity (GP) Project is
subject to comply with environmental and social safeguards described in the MCC Environmental
Guidelines. To achieve this, MCA-Indonesia has developed the MCA- Indonesia Environmental
and Social Management System (ESMS) Framework as the main reference for environmental and
social management in MCA-Indonesia and to act as the Tier- 1 main policy and implementation
framework for the tiered approach ESMS in the Indonesia Compact. At the GP Project level, MCAIndonesia also developed the Tier-2 GP Project ESMS as a framework to guide environmental and
social performance for the GP Project.
All Green Prosperity investments and operations shall comply with the MCA-Indonesia Tier 1 ESMS
Framework and Tier 2 GP ESMS, which is based on safeguard laws and regulations of the Government
of Indonesia, MCC Environmental Guidelines, MCC Gender Policy and the Green Prosperity Social &
Gender Integration Plan (SGIP), and are consistent with the IFC Performance Standards (IFC PS) on
Environmental and Social Sustainability. The proponent is responsible for developing and
commissioning the Project-level ESMS, and Environmental and Social Impact assessments (ESIA),
shall include Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) and the L-L Analysis as well as
necessary environmental and social studies and/or assessment identified specifically for this GP

6.2.2 Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)

The Proponent is responsible for commissioning the environmental assessment, which comprises
of either an AMDAL or UKL/UPL or an SPPL, following the Indonesian regulations that govern
determination of an appropriate level of Study.
The scope of the AMDAL or UKL/UPL shall follow Indonesian government guidelines, but be
complemented or strengthened in several areas to ensure compliance with Project ESMS (and thus
the IFC Performance Standards).
In the event that no AMDAL or UKL/UPL is required by Indonesian regulations, then the preparation
and submission to the Indonesian authorities is not required to be undertaken, but the ESIA for MCAIndonesia purposes should meet the IFC PS standards.
Areas that need to be strengthened in the AMDAL or UKL/UPL may include (but are not limited) to
the following:
Assessment of stakeholder engagement which include stakeholder identification,
stakeholder mapping and stakeholder engagement plan;
Assessment of social impacts (issues related to women and marginalized groups, indigenous
peoples, cultural heritage, human trafficking, discrimination in the workplace);
Assessment of impacts related to land acquisition and resettlement, if required;
Public participation in the AMDAL process (particularly to ensure that women, marginalized
groups and indigenous peoples are adequately consulted).
During implementation of the environmental assessment, the proponent shall conduct
appropriate consultations with affected communities and key stakeholders. For the
Environmental and Social Assessment (EIA) process, the consultations shall follow Government
of Indonesia guidelines, and results shall be formally acknowledged and incorporated in the
environmental and social assessment (ESA) Study and reports. For UKL/UPL, consultations shall
be conducted to ensure that the affected communities perception of potential impacts (even
insignificant ones) is considered in the preparation of environmental and social management and
monitoring plans. In both instances, appropriate dissemination of information and IFC Performance
Standards regarding informed consultation shall be conducted to ensure that target groups are
prepared to provide comments, inputs and express aspirations in a manner that is consistent with the
requirements of the IFC Performance Standard triggered.
The proponent shall ensure that all AMDAL or UKL/UPL documents produced by proponent are of
good quality and follow accepted standards set, at minimum, by the Ministry of Environment or
local level agency. MCA-Indonesia ESP and/or GP technical assistance teams shall provide support to
proponent should they require it, particularly regarding review of draft AMDAL or UKL/UPL
documents prior to submission to the Government for approvals.
As part of the environmental assessment, the proponent (or their consultants) shall gain an
understanding of how the environment (and changes therein) may affect the viability and
sustainability of MCA-Indonesia GP investments. If an assessment has been done by MCA- Indonesia,
results shall be shared with proponent (and their consultants), and such findings shall be
incorporated into or influence Project-specific designs and/or environmental assessments. A
strategic environmental assessment, or other method of baseline assessment agreed with the MCAIndonesia ESP Director, will address this issue.

Insert Section Title

6.2.3 Environmental and Social Management Plant (ESMP)

Part of the outcome of the Environmental Impact Assessment (AMDAL or UKL/UPL) process is an
environmental management plan (in the form of RKL or UKL). In order to ensure proper Design and
Implementation of Environmental and Social Action Plans, the proponent shall prepare the RKL or
UKL in such a way that it comprehensively addresses mitigation and management of environmental
and social impacts, and elaboration of stakeholder engagement plan (SEP), public consultation and
disclosure plan (PCDP). Because the contents of the RKL or UKL will become the basis of
Environmental Permit conditions, the action plan shall have the following characteristics: a) specific
and measurable actions, b) clear targets and location of actions; c) realistic frequency or duration of
actions; d) present mechanism to modify actions should monitoring show unexpected impacts.
Aspects or parameters that are not included in the Environmental Permit, shall remain in the
Environmental and Social Action Plan, and shall be implemented with the same diligence as those in
the Environmental Permit. The Project Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) will be
developed based on the GP Tier 2 ESMS and will elaborate further Proponents responsibilities,
actions and management plan for the entire duration of the Project. This ESMP will also be the basis
for planning and resourcing and procuring for the successful implementation of the Project ESMS, and
will form the basis for budgeting.

Social and Gender Integration Requirements

The Social and Gender Integration Plan (SGIP) is an operational tool developed by MCA-Indonesia
that complies with the MCC Gender Policy and the IFC Performance Standards on Environmental and
Social Sustainability. Its objective is to systematize and ensure social and gender integration across
Compact Projects and activities in order to reduce poverty and improve household welfare. It
also aims to minimize social and gender based constraints, provide equal opportunity to both women
and men in GP investments, minimize exclusion of marginalized groups, reduce social jealousy and
conflicts, and potential capture of benefits by elites. A substantial amount of background research,
analysis, assessments and consultations have been carried out during the Compact development
process to help inform this plan. These assessments identified several cross-cutting gaps and
inequalities at the policy, institutional and community levels, which may impact women and
marginalized groups ability to participate in and benefit from different Projects. The SGIP includes
activities to address some of these social and gender based critical constraints, reduce barriers and
identify opportunities for providing equitable benefits to all.

6.3.1 Rationale for Social Inclusion and Gender Integration in Green

Prosperity (SGIP)
The Indonesia Compact commits to equal participation in and benefits from GP Project
investments by women and marginalized groups. Given the commitment, the following are some
key social and gender based constraints that can limit full participation by all social groups and reduce
their potential in GP activities.

Participatory land use planning (PLUP), village boundary setting and resource mapping
(VBS/RM): If women and marginalized groups are left out of the consultations and decision


Section 1
Insert Section Title

making, the results may not reflect the full scope of marginalized groups and womens natural
resource management and use patterns potentially affecting outcomes in landscapes,
livelihoods, and food security. Therefore, it will be critical to include ethnic communities, and
women in VBS/RM consultations and decision making.
b. Natural resource management (NRM): Social and gender aspects influence individuals roles in
accessing, managing and utilizing natural resources, especially forest. Indonesia has over 300
ethnic communities (adat) and majority of them depend on forests. In forest and ethnic
communities, women depend on forests for income and subsistence, and as such forest is much
more important for women as they derive half of their income from forests. Though both mens
and womens forestry activities contribute to household livelihoods there is considerable gender
differences in access and benefits.
c. Renewable energy (RE): In many rural areas in Indonesia, women especially in indigenous
communities collect firewood and cook over smoky fires, with substantial burdens relating to
health and time use. However, women usually have limited access to modern household fuel,
electricity or technology, which reduces their potential in saving time, enterprise development,
productivity and income. Women working in cacao, coffee and other commodities can improve
their income if electricity, processing equipment and fermenting technologies are available.
d. Sustainable agriculture: Women play a vital role as agricultural producers and are agents of
food and nutritional security for households, however, women have much less access to
productive assets such as land, irrigation, equipment, finance and extension services relative to
men. Research indicated that women have less opportunity to get involved in the farmers
(cocoa/coffee) groups and get less opportunity to be invited into the farmers training (capacity
building), accessing extension services and high yield inputs since only heads of households
could join these groups and access services and training (generally women are not recognized as
head of households).

6.3.2 Key Social and Gender Activities needed for GP


Capacity Building for Proponents and GranteesProject developers and implementers. A series
of capacity building materials, tools, and modules are prepared to help various GP stakeholders
understand and meet the social and gender requirements and to ensure equal access for women
and vulnerable groups.
b. Grantees to follow inclusive participatory process, by including women and marginalized
groups for design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of GP investments. This is key for
ensuring the views, needs, concerns and interests of both women and men and vulnerable groups
are incorporated into Projects.
c. L-L Analysis carried out by Grantees so that this helps reducing elite capture of benefits and
potential conflict: L-L analysis will help identify social, gender, institutional and NRM
relationships, and identify approaches for equal participation and voice for all in GP investments,
which will help develop strategies and social contracts between communities for reducing
elite capture of benefits and potential jealousy.
d. Collect global good practices and proactively support economic opportunities for women and
marginalized groups through GP investments. It also includes supporting the hiring of women
in infrastructure Projects, and complementary activities that encourage womens economic
potential, especially focusing on womens income generation potential.

Are there any sectoral biases and what are these? Will some sectors invest more heavily or benefit
from investment more than others? Are there sectors that should invest, but are not compelled to?
Are any structural policy or institutional challenges or constraints?
Are there tensions between development, donor and research agencies across the same landscape and
what are these?
What are the potential uncertainty and risks to investors?
Are there any governance, dispute resolution and social accountability measure for local resource
utilization and management?


To include descriptions to respond to following questions:

What is the status of natural resources for improving productivity, especially land, soil and
Are there market access and investment opportunities or constraints for local population,
significant to the investment?

upstream or downstream areas of watersheds affecting livelihoods?


To include descriptions to respond to following questions:

Is there potential exclusion of certain groups from investment related economic and other activities
and why? What about forest dwellers who are protecting the forest and water sources? Will they be
adequately compensated or remain excluded from project participation and benefits? Is women
headed household be counted as beneficiaries of the investment related economic and other
Do women and vulnerable groups have access to economic opportunities employment, agricultural
training, inputs and extension services? Describe actions to be taken so that women, the poor and
vulnerable groups will benefit directly from the project investment?
Any divisive social jealousy and reasons? What about forest dwellers, fishers, women headed
households who do not access to services, project benefits and payments. How can GP investments
increase household incomes and economic growth in project locations, as well as support the enabling
environment for promoting equity, stakeholder cohesion, and incentivize some actors/sectors to
invest in relevant sectors for example promoting value chain development, market access for women
and men farmers, fishers and other producers in rural areas?
Any potential dispute and conflict and why?

Standard 3 references the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, produced by the World Resources Institute and
World Business Council for Sustainable Development, which provides guidance on conducting these
types of GHG analyses. See:
In the case where project core interventions have no demonstrable reduction of GHG emission,
propose a credible scheme to offset any additional emissions resulting from project (only Scope 1 of
the GHG protocol, that is, direct effects of the project, whereby these may include effects on the
Investment Landscape and not just on the plots of land treated by the project.
