Description

Access to improved water supply and sanitation results in economic development and poverty reduction, ensures food safety and better livelihoods, preserves the environment, reduces health burden, and empowers communities and provides opportunities for women.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has prepared a sector assessment, strategy, and road map for the water supply and sanitation sector in Indonesia. Aside from a current assessment, the document outlines key ADB initiatives to reduce water supply shortages and improve sanitation. The main urban thrusts of ADB’s investments program are expansion of in sewer system in the main Indonesian cities and a return to the water supply sector. These investment programs are supported by a comprehensive technical assistance program, namely: (i) assisting BAPPENAS with preparing the water supply and sanitation sector provisions of the new National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJM 2015–2019); (ii) establishing water operator partnerships focused on improving the performance of water companies; and (iii) directly assisting selected water companies to improve their financial situation. In rural areas, investment in the water supply and sanitation sector is incorporated in projects that are focused on improving general infrastructure.
