Indonesia: Urban Sanitation and Rural Infrastructure Support to the PNPM Mandiri Project

Evaluation Document | 26 December 2017

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.

This report validates the completion report's assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Successful.
