USAID IUWASH Tangguh Supports Indonesia Achieve its National Targets for Safely Managed Sanitation Through Roadmap Development

Expert Staff of South Sulawesi Governor, Mohammad Hassan, highlighted that the government will use the roadmap as a reference for preparing the regional medium term development plan

USAID IUWASH Tangguh supports the Government of Indonesia to achieve its 2020–2024 National Medium Term Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional/RPJMN) and Sustainable Development Targets for sanitation by assisting local government partners to develop safely managed sanitation roadmaps.

USAID IUWASH Tangguh and South Sulawesi Province organized a kickoff meeting on the development of safely managed sanitation road map for the province in Makassar city on September 22nd, 2023. This event saw active participation from representatives from South Sulawesi’s Regional Infrastructure Agency and 24 district and city governments.

According to Mr. Mohammad Hassan, the expert staff of the South Sulawesi Governor, the province aims to achieve 15 percent access to safely managed sanitation by 2030. Further, the provincial government will use the roadmap document as a reference to prepare the 2025–2045 regional medium term development plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Daerah/RPJMD) considering Indonesia’s centennial celebration as a republic in 2045.

However, the Government of South Sulawesi Province still face challenges, such as limited functioning septage treatment plants and domestic wastewater operators.

In the meeting, districts and cities verified information on their respective sanitation condition. This information will serve as a baseline for the provincial government to calculate and designate safely managed sanitation targets for each of the districts and cities.
USAID IUWASH Tangguh continues to support national and local government partners to strengthen regulatory frameworks to aid the government and service providers to expand safely managed sanitation access to the larger Indonesian population
