The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Penyehatan
Lingkungan untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) project is an initiative designed to assist the Government of Indonesia 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 and donor agencies, the private sector, NGOs, communities and others to achieve the following “high level” results:
- An increase access to improved water supply service for 1.1 million people in urban areas of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population (also referred to as the “bottom 40%” or “B40”); and
- An increase access to safely managed sanitation for 500,000 people in urban areas.
USAID IUWASH PLUS will work with 35 Local Governments across Indonesia located in 8 provinces that includes North Sumatra, West Java, Central Java, East Java, South Sulawesi, Maluku, North Maluku and Papua, and 2 special areas in DKI Jakarta and Tangerang District.
To ensure that improvements in access to WASH services are sustained, USAID IUWASH PLUS 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, USAID IUWASH PLUS undertakes activities through four interrelated components, including:
- Improving household WASH services;
- Strengthening city WASH institutional performance;
- Strengthening the WASH financing environment; and
- Advancing national WASH advocacy, coordination and communication.
In support of the above, USAID IUWASH PLUS also manages a Local Sustainability and Innovation (LSIC) activity.
