USAID Indonesia – Hygiene/Sanitation Project in Urban Areas

Program: Environment (Increase Access to Safe Drinking Water and Adequate Sanitation)
Dates: April 2011 – April 2014

“High 5” Kelurahan will improve hygiene and sanitation practices at the household and community levels in urban areas with high diarrhea prevalence. The project will contribute to the achievement of the national sanitation campaign (Sanitasi Total Berbasis Masyarakat/ STBM) and citywide sanitation strategies (Strategi Sanitasi Kota/SSK) in three cities: Medan, Surabaya and Makassar.

This three-year project will result in the following benefits to Indonesia:

  • 12,000 households have access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation facilities;
  • Improved hygiene practices and sanitation in 20 villages; and
  • Improved hygiene practices and sanitation in 20 schools.

To achieve these results, activities under the following components will be implemented:

  1. Generate demand for improved water and sanitation facilities in select sites through community mobilization, public-private partnerships, and communications campaigns;
  2. Increase visibility of urban water and sanitation issues to gain support for STBM through engaging media; and
  3. Work under the SSK to ameliorate inefficiencies and streamline the cities’ solid waste collection systems.
