The Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (IUWASH) project

The Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (IUWASH) project is a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI). IUWASH works with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in Indonesia’s urban areas. The overall project goal is to assist the Government of Indonesia make significant progress in achieving its safe water and sanitation Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets by expanding access to these services. The expected results to be achieved are: (a) Two million people in urban areas gain access to improved water supply; (b) 200,000 people in urban areas gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and (c) the per unit water cost paid by the poor in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%. To achieve the above, technical assistance is divided in three main technical components: 1. Mobilizing demand for water supply and sanitation service delivery; 2. Improving and expanding capacity for water and sanitation service delivery; and 3. Strengthening policy and the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation service delivery. Under Component 1, IUWASH has the mandate to support and attract financing from private sector (CSR) to enhance IUWASH program objectives. Under Component 2, IUWASH has mandate to assist local governments and PDAMs in preparing and implementing climate change adaptation measures, based on preliminary raw water sources vulnerability assessments. IUWASH has recently developed a joint program with Coca-Cola Foundation Indonesia (CCFI) to increase recharge of a large spring that serves the City of Mojokerto, The project will continue a successful approach applied by IUWASH in Sibolangit (North Sumatra) which promotes the installation by local communities of infiltration ponds in spring catchments to collect rainwater runoff. The approach includes the provision of training in pond construction, quality control, system operation, and regular monitoring through measuring changes in flow. USAID/IUWASH will continue this approach by introducing and replicating this best practice in other areas to help local water utilities (PDAMs) to replenish their raw water supply. Water Replenish Project USAID-IUWASH and CocaCola Foundation Indonesia(CCFI) USAID/IUWASH in partnership with CCFI will implement a “water replenish” project in Mojokerto, East Java. The project objective is to facilitate recharge of a spring aquifer (Pacet area) which contributes to the drinking water supply for Kabupaten Mojokerto. Over the last years discharge has been deteriorating at a rate of 5% per year. In addition to this, the Trawas spring is a critical contributor to raw water supply of PDAM Djoebel Tirta Kabupaten Mojokerto. If this decline continues (or even increases as may be the case due to negative effects of Climate Change, PDAM Djoebel Tirta Kabupaten Mojokerto will lose one of their most reliable water sources, with immediate impact on the supply of safe water to many people. PT Coca Cola, as a major company heavily reliant on safe water supplies is very concerned over the availability of clean water for this area and has taken the lead in supporting this water replenish initiative in partnership with USAID/IUWASH for technical support and a local NGO as the main implementer. CCFI will provide a grant to the local NGO to install infiltration ponds during a period of one year. The IUWASH program has a fully functioning and staffed office in Surabaya, but since specialized and dedicated Project Liaison to this program is so critical in reaching one of IUWASH goals, to provide example for replication and to further build the partnership between Coca Cola and USAID, it was agreed to provide specific project support for the expected duration of this program.
