USAID Indonesia Urban Resilient Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (USAID IUWASH Tangguh) is a five-year Activity to advance Indonesia’s development goals in increasing access to safely managed drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in vulnerable urban areas and strengthening climate-resilient WASH services and water resources management. In close partnership with the Government of Indonesia (GOI), USAID IUWASH Tangguh supports Indonesia’s work to achieve their Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets to ensure access to water and sanitation for all (SDG 6) and to make cities and settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable (SDG 11).
Using an Integrated Resilient IUWASH Systems (IRIS) approach—which aligns actions and incentives between upstream and downstream actors, while crowding in collaboration with key stakeholders through partnerships that accelerate the enabling environment and key enabling factors, such as finance and data—the USAID IUWASH Tangguh team will provide technical assistance to GOI, private sector and civil society stakeholders to achieve four objectives: 1) Strengthened WASH and WRM Sector Governance and Financing; 2) Increased Access to Poor-Inclusive, Climate-Resilient, Safely Managed Drinking Water and Sanitation Services; 3) Improved Water Resources Management to Support Resilient Drinking Water Services; and 4) Increased Adoption of Behaviors and Improved Women’s Participation and Leadership Roles that Contribute to Improvements of WASH and WRM.
Indonesia is vulnerable to climate change, particularly to changes in temperature and rainfall that can affect seasonal changes with prolonged dry season or wet periods with too much rain thus creating flood risk. Given this situation, the National Medium-Term Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional-RPJMN), 2020-2024 emphasizes that as part of all the National Priorities (Prioritas Nasional-PN), PN 6 addresses the importance to build disaster and climate resilience. Water is among the four sectors that is the focus of resilience building, e.g., securing water availability in the face of climate change.
In parallel, the Enhanced Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) 2022, focuses that it is critical to build climate resilience in water sector. It is essential that building water resilience is to fulfil the needs of the growing population. The NDC suggests that integrated watershed management is the key program that encompasses broad strategies and actions.
Both the RPJMN and NDC emphasis that capacity building is one of key aspects in building resilience. To address this, USAID IUWASH Tangguh will hold a training program on building climate resilience for water sector. The framework of building resilience will align with the climate change adaptation that centers on reducing climate risks, e.g., through capacity improvements and/or reduction of vulnerability. In addition, USAID IUWASH Tangguh emphasizes that building resilience shall also address sustainable landscapes issues, e.g., conservation of watershed. The training program will mainly comprise classroom lectures on key and critical topics, field exercise, and group works in defining vulnerability and risks, developing climate actions, and integrating them into policy and planning. The field exercise should be conducted in a location that experiences problems associated with lacking and/or excessive water during dry and wet seasons respectively. Location for the field exercise shall be identified and proposed by bidders.
