Regional: Revitalization of Informal Settlements and their Environments using a Water-Sensitive Approach

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51290-001 Status: Active

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the piloting of an approach and technology for the proposed Revitalization of Informal Settlements and their Environments using a Water Sensitive Approach (RISE) project. Pilots will be undertaken in Makassar City, Indonesia and in the Greater Suva Area, Fiji. In line with ADB's existing knowledge partnership with the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), the piloting represents the first adaptation of CRCWSC's water-sensitive approach to infrastructure in a development context. The technology aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of a water-sensitive approach which uses decentralized, green infrastructure to biologically treat contaminated and polluted water, and in doing so improve the environmental quality and health of the community.

Description The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the piloting of an approach and technology for the proposed Revitalization of Informal Settlements and their Environments using a Water Sensitive Approach (RISE) project. Pilots will be undertaken in Makassar City, Indonesia and in the Greater Suva Area, Fiji. In line with ADB's existing knowledge partnership with the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), the piloting represents the first adaptation of CRCWSC's water-sensitive approach to infrastructure in a development context. The technology aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of a water-sensitive approach which uses decentralized, green infrastructure to biologically treat contaminated and polluted water, and in doing so improve the environmental quality and health of the community. Experiences and lessons from the demonstration activities undertaken through the TA are expected to inform technical design, implementation arrangements and cost estimates for the proposed RISE project.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Asia-Pacific region is the most rapidly urbanizing region in the world. As populations seek improved economic opportunities in cities, a growing proportion of urban populations are forced to live in informal settlements with inadequate infrastructure and limited or no access to basic services. The capacity of governments in the region to improve urban planning and implement sustainable land use practices is often limited. The conventional approach to urban services including water supply and sanitation usually relies on large scale, centralized trunk infrastructure. This infrastructure typically fails to service lower-income and informal areas, which often have insecure land tenure.
Impact Climate resilience, social, economic, and public health conditions improved.
Project Outcome

Consulting Services The KSTA will finance national consultant inputs and civil works. The national consultant inputs are for conduct of community co-design, disclosure, sub-project design, costing, implementation planning, construction, management documentation and coordination of the activities. International inputs will be provided through the existing knowledge partnership with CRCWSC and as such are not categorized as consultant inputs under this KSTA.
Procurement All TA-financed goods to support the pilot activities shall be procured in accordance with ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated PAIs/TA Staff Instructions.
