Water and other urban infrastructure and services - Urban policy, institutional and capacity development - Urban sanitation - Urban sewerage

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming
Description The Project will provide improved urban wastewater services in two regional governmtns (RGs): Kota Medan (provicne of North Sumatra) and Kota Yogyakarta (province of Yogyakarta) including neighboring Kabupaten Sleman and Kabupaten Bantul.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Indonesia has a population of approximately 230 million people, of which over 100 million are living in urban areas. By 2015, the population will have increased to about 250 million, and the share of the urban population is expected to approach 60%, with more than 140 million living in urban areas.

Following decentralization in 2001 provision of basic urban services is the responsibility of RGs. The responsibility for off-site wastewater management (sewerage) in large and metropolitan cities is shared with the central government. Currently only about 2% of the urban population has access to off-site wastewater services.

Indonesia is lagging behnd many other countries in the region in the provision and management of basic urban services. In particular, the situation in the wastewater sector is considered to be of serious concern. The main issues include: (i) the low coverage and efficiency of the wastewater sector, and (ii) the acute environmental problem of gross pollution of water resources in urban areas caused by poor management of wastewater and human waste. The Project will address these issues by responding to wastewater discharge needs of the urban population (including low-income households) in both participating RGs, where inadequate service delivery continues to negatively affect human development outcomes.

Impact Improved public health and reduced environmental pollution in the participating cities.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Increased access to improved wastewater in the participating cities.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The Project has been prepared in close consultation with city sanitation working teams (CSWT) that were established by the participating city governments. The CSWTs assisted with the selection of target groups during the conduct of socioeconomic surveys and focus group discussions, adn provided feedback and information to stakeholders and the executing agency (EA).
During Project Implementation During project implementation the CSWTs, int he form of city coordinating committees, will continue to play an important part by providing recommendations to the city government's concerning the planning and design of proposed sanitation projects, particularly regarding the selection of community-based sanitation components. In Indonesia, NGOs have historically played an important part in providing community infrastructure and the Project will involved such organizations from the start, particularly in the planning and implementation of community-based sanitation projects.
