The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-year initiative designed to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in increasing access to water supply and sanitation services as well as improving key hygiene behaviors among urban poor and vulnerable populations. USAID IUWASH PLUS works with governmental agencies, the private sector, NGOs, communities and others to achieve the following “high level” results:
I. An increase of one million people in urban areas with access to improved water supply service quality, of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population (also referred to as the “Bottom 40%” or “B40”), vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces; and
II. An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation and all of whom are from the “B40”, vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces.
To ensure that improvements in access to WASH services are sustained, USAID IUWASH PLUS is guided by a development hypothesis that focuses on strengthening service delivery systems, so they can more effectively reach the poorest and most vulnerable segments of the population. In order to achieve this at scale, the program undertakes activities through four interrelated components, including: 1) improving household WASH services; 2) strengthening city WASH institutional performance; 3) strengthening the WASH financing environment; and 4) advancing national WASH advocacy, coordination and communication.
The main objectives of this support program are to promote WASH microfinance through the development of a “WASH Microfinance Toolkit” that will :
1. Serve as a primary guide and reference manual to Microfinance Institutes (MFIs) in the development of their own WASH microfinance initiatives; and
2. Serve as a key reference to GOI partners and others in their promotion of WASH microfinance programs and development of related support programs.
Under the supervision of Component 3 Team Lead, the tasks and responsibilities of the Service Provider will include, but not be limited to, the following:
1. Conducting a desk review of relevant reference materials, including those from IUWASH, IUWASH PLUS, other WASH based organizations and any others that may be relevant.
2. Visiting project stakeholders and sites to better understand current WASH microfinance efforts and challenges. Institutional stakeholders may include: Bappenas, OJK, LPDB, Ministry of Cooperatives, Microfinance Institutions, etc. Other stakeholders may include: IUWASH PLUS staff, MFI agents and loan recipients, local construction companies, etc.
3. Developing an annotated outline for the Toolkit based on the draft included in Attachment A to this SOW.
4. With the assistance of the Service Provider’s supervisors, developing a workplan and timeline for Toolkit production. This will involve:
o The designation of IUWASH PLUS staff at the national level who can serve as technical resources for each section or subsection. Staff are expected to include National Coordinators and Specialists working in the areas of microfinance, WASH product marketing, household sanitation systems, and water supply programs.
o Conducting a brief workshop with staff to establishing a timeline for production.
5. Oversee Toolkit production, including the coordination of input from various program specialists, as well as the identification (as needed) of additional resources that may be required. This is expected to involve periodic meetings with those involved in Toolkit production.
6. Produce an initial draft for review that will be shared with IUWASH PLUS partners at the national level for feedback. This will also involve conducting a one-day workshop with a small group of MFIs to pre-test the Toolkit and solicit feedback.
7. Oversee and ensure the graphic and layout work, including artwork, of the toolkit
