Water Utility Improvement Program: Indonesia
The Australian Water Association in partnership with the Peak Water Supply Association of Indonesia (PERPAMSI) and with the support of the Australian Water Partnership (AWP) is undertaking a Water Utility Improvement Program between three Australian utilities and three Indonesian Water Utilities (PDAMs).
The program supports the Government of Australia’s New Aid Policy (New Aid Paradigm) launched in mid-2014, which references water as a priority. The program will take forward key water reform objectives of the Indonesian Government in its efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal aimed at universal access to safe and clean water by offering Australian expertise in delivering safe and reliable potable water, wastewater and drainage services to water professionals in Indonesia.
The program which commenced in March 2019 will run for an initial period of 20 months with each utility pair identifying areas to share knowledge and build capacity in over this time.
