The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-and-a-half-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:
1. An increase of 1,100,000 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
2. An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation.
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. In support of these components, USAID IUWASH PLUS also implements a Local Sustainability and Innovation Component (LSIC) that is designed to stimulate WASH innovations that strengthen community, private sector and government WASH service provision.
B. Activity Background
Sanitation for All! Although often considered a ‘back end,’ sanitation management services for domestic wastewater or human feces are essential because they involve the quality of life of Indonesian people. “Even though it is a rear matter, sanitation is the front line because it is closely related to the quality of life of the people, which in turn will contribute to increasing the productivity of Indonesian people and determining the success of future development,” said the Minister of National Development Planning Agency, Mr. Bambang Brodjonegoro on City Sanitation Summit XIX event.
Indonesia has shown progress in providing sanitation access. In 2018, community access to latrines reached more than 74.5%, including 7 percent safe sanitation. But, this achievement is not accompanied by a decrease in the prevalence of diarrhea and stunting. In 2018, the average incidence of diarrhea in Indonesia reached 7%, and the stunting rate is still above 30%. And in 2017, the Ministry of Environment stated that 75% of rivers in Indonesia are polluted, 60% of the pollutant are contributed by untreated domestic wastewater.
Safe sanitation is actually not a foreign concept. If the area has or is trying to achieve Open Defecation Free (ODF) or Stop Buang Air Besar Sembarangan (BABS), then the region has actually taken the first step towards safely-managed sanitation. As a ladder, Stop BABS is the first rung, and safely managed sanitation is the last rung. Safely managed sanitation includes a series of activities to ensure that feces are collected (latrines are connected to a septic tank), vacuumed or transported, or distributed (individual or communal scale septic tanks and feces sludge transportation: scheduled and unscheduled), and processed in the Fecal Sludge Treatment Plant. All of these activities need to be carried out to ensure that domestic wastewater is safely managed along the sanitation chain.
One reason is the pollution of water resources due to domestic wastewater that is not managed correctly before being discharged into the environment. This means that there is still much homework to be done to improve access to safe sanitation. One of them is supporting sludge services. The implementation of safely managed sanitation must provide a comprehensive solution to protect public health and cut off water source pollution. If it only focuses on the construction of facilities without the management of fecal sludge, the problems due to open defecation will not be solved. When the area has been managing its sludge well, an essential component of safe sanitation has been implemented. Safe sanitation is a mirror of the civilization of an area.
Considering the importance of safely managed sanitation as a life-sustaining resource, USAID IUWASH PLUS, together with one of the partners, plans to organize activities to launch intensive awareness campaigns to ensure access to safely managed sanitation for all in Indonesia. This collaboration aims to strengthen the WASH sector to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets, especially goal 6, about ensuring access to safe water sources and sanitation for all. And also in carrying out public engagement in the form of ‘Kumpul Blogger’ would provide information on what we can do as joint campaign ‘Sanitasi Aman, Mulai Kapan?
