URBAN SANITATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Access to improved wastewater facilities in Indonesia is below 60 per cent. Moreover, the presence of large quantities of sewage and uncollected garbage intensifies the problems of already inadequate drainage networks.

Since 2006 the Indonesian government has intensified its efforts to increase access to sanitation. In 2010 it launched the Program Percepatan Pembangunan Sanitasi Permukiman (PPSP) or Accelerated Sanitation Development for Human Settlements program, which sets specific goals for the three sub-sectors of wastewater, solid waste and urban drainage.

The Urban Sanitation Development Program is a technical support project within this program. Funded by Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the aim of the program is to support the Indonesian government in reaching PPSP goals.

The USDP supports over 400 cities and districts throughout Indonesia with technical, institutional and health related services. The program requires frequent interaction with different ministries and departments at local, provincial and national level. Key to this approach is the city sanitation strategy which has a five-year implementation plan. This methodology was developed by the 2006 -2009 ISSDP project.

USDP began on February 1, 2010. This program goes hand in hand with PPSP program and had the same five-year period. Two approaches were developed by USDP are:

  1. Provide general guidance and support to the PMU, PIUs and the consultant, with a focus on development/capacity building and training as well as the transfer of knowledge, skills, expertise, and experience from previous ISSDP programs;
  2. Specific guidance and support to local governments and their consultants to six stages of PPSP.

THE AIM AND OBJECTIVES

The overal aim of the USDP is to facilitate and support the implementation of PPSP.

More specifically, the objectives are:

CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT

Develop capacity in the PMU and PIUs responsible for implementing the PPSP in effectively managing the development of the sector together with the stakeholders at the provincial and local levels;

CONSOLIDATION OF STRATEGY PLANNING AND SUPPORT OF IMPLEMENTATION

Consolidate the SSK approach for use by government facilitators and cities throughout the country, while ensuring that the SSKs address the needs of the poor and underserved citizens;

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

The USDP consultants will provide technical assistance to the PMU and the PIUs to strengthen their capacity in supporting the Provinces and cities with the planning and implementation of sanitation improvements.

  • CAPACITY BUILDING

    Develop capacity of responsible PMU and PIUs in PPSP implementation effectively by managing development of the sector together with the stakeholders at the provincial and local levels;

  • CONSOLIDATE THE SSK APPROACH

    Consolidate the SSK approach for use by government facilitators and cities throughout the country, while ensuring that the SSKs address the needs of the poor and underserved citizens;

Our Strong Points Ipad
  • SUPPORT THE IMPLEMENTATION

    Support the implementation of fundable project proposals following the outcomes of the SSKs;

  • TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

    The USDP consultants will provide technical assistance to the PMU and the PIUs to strengthen their capacity in supporting the provinces and cities with the planning and implementation of sanitation improvements


USDP took a role to facilitate and further strengthen GOI institutions at the national, provincial and, indirectly, at the local level involved in implementing the Accelerated Sanitation Development for Human Settlements program (PPSP).

In order to accelerate planning of and investments sanitation development in Indonesia, the Government of Indonesia (GoI) defined a range of targets, elaborated in the Roadmap to PPSP 2010-2014. This roadmap targets 330 cities and districts having sanitation problems and is focusing on three goals to be achieved by 2014: Eradication of open and careless defecation, at-source reduction of waste generation by 20% via the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) and environmentally-friendly waste management and reduced urban flooding.

The Urban Sanitation Development Program (USDP) provides technical assistance to PPSP’s executing agencies at central, provincial and local government levels. Systems and procedures for technical assistance has been prepared previously by ISSDP working experience in pilot projects in several cities. Preparation of the system and the procedure is carried out in collaboration with the consultants employed by the local government to help the Sanitation Working Group.

PPSP is designed for the period of 2010 – 2014 in line with the national 5-year planning period. One of the PPSP’s output supported by USDP is large numbers of districts/cities are able to develop poor inclusive district/city wide sanitation strategies. Even though in 2014 the target is not fully achieved as accelerated sanitation development in the 330 districts and cities just have started with implementation of sanitation improvements defined in the SSKs (last stage in PPSP roadmap), but the fact that numbers of district and cities having joined PPSP has reached 444 is an impressive PPSP achievement. This also means that the vast majority of districts and cities in Indonesia already has able to develop their city-wide planning on sanitation developments.
