USAID ENV – IUWASH PASAR

Mercy Corps Indonesia (MCI) is a local Indonesian non-profit organization, which implements humanitarian and development assistance programs throughout the country. MCI’s mission is to empower people in Indonesia to become healthy, productive, and resilient communities. Resilience means an ability to recover form or adjust easily to misfortune or change.

 

Program / Department Summary

Indonesia has made considerable progress in the water supply and sanitation sector over the past twenty years. As part of its “Vision 2045,” Indonesia seeks to enhance water security and achieve SDG targets related to access to safe water and sanitation for all, with the following interim mid-term development targets by 2024: 100 percent access to improved water supply system, including 15 percent access to safely managed drinking water supply services; 10 million new water connections; 90 percent access to improved sanitation services, including 15 percent access to safely managed sanitation; 100 percent open defecation free; 20 percent solid waste reduced at source, and 80 percent solid waste handled.

Given the need for massive investment in WASH infrastructure and broad changes in individual and collective behaviors to achieve the countries targets by 2024, the involvement of communities, households, and the private sector will be pivotal at every stage at every stage. Closing the financing gap will require diverse resource investments, reducing costs, increasing tariff, taxes, and transfers, and exploring alternative financing tools. Market-based solutions that can connect unserved and underserved populations to WASH products and services may help close this financing gap.

Mercy Corps Indonesia has worked for over 20 years and is preparing a full application for the USAID NOFO for Indonesia: ENV – IUWASH Pasar. The overall goal of IUWASH Pasar is to catalyze and grow local markets for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) products and services in Indonesia’s vulnerable urban areas. Target urban areas are to be determined, but will be located at least in 3 (three) USAID high priority provinces. To achieve the overall goal, the Project will focus on the following three main objectives:

  1. Improve business environment to foster greater private sector contribution for WASH services and products
  2. Enhance viability of WASH businesses and increase availability of affordable, desirable WASH products and services to underserved market segments.
  3. Improved key WASH behaviors for increased demand with correct and consistent use of WASH products and services.
