Indonesia: Urban Sanitation and Rural Infrastructure Support to the PNPM Mandiri Project
The government requested the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) support for the PNPM Mandiri scheme to further upgrade basic rural infrastructure in poor villages and promote community-driven sanitation development. The project was in line with the government’s Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional (National Medium-Term Development Plan), and ADB’s Country Strategy and Program for Indonesia 2006–20093 and Country Operations Business Plan: Indonesia, 2010–2012, which emphasized investment in rural infrastructure.
The modality adopted was project lending. The project was intended to complement other ADB-financed projects in Indonesia including the Rural Infrastructure Support to the PNPM Mandiri Project (RIS-PNPM) for $50.0 million and the RIS-PNPM Project II for $84.2 million. The RIS-PNPM gave the poor significantly better access to nearby markets, improved the supply of water for domestic use, and facilitated access to public health facilities and good-quality education services.
