Water Hibah Impact Evaluation Report

This report presents the impact evaluation of Phase I of the Water Hibah program, an initiative that provides incentives for Local Governments to expand their piped water networks. Under the Water Hibah, low-income households pay for the infrastructure cost of connecting their household to the main water line, and the PDAM is reimbursed for the cost of the main-line infrastructure after demonstrating a sustainable con­nection for three months.

Local Government Water Supply and Sanitation Index: Operations Manual

Under the auspices of the Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative, this activity focused on the preliminary design and field test of a Local Government Water Supply and Sanitation Index (WSSI, or “the Index”), an easily understood index to evaluate local government performance in the provision of water and sanitation service delivery. The design effort represents the second stage of a four-part index development process which consists of: (1) the initial concept paper, (2) detailed design and field test, (3) multi-municipality pilot test, and (4) full roll-out accompanied by dissemination and socialisation of the results.


The World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) has been assisting the “next generation” of CBOs through a process of identification and reinvention into water enterprises of the community. In partnership with the Australian-funded Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative, WSP is supporting the Ministry of Public Works and the National Development Planning Agency to develop and test solutions that will move CBOs from existing condition to the improved situation in future through the “Upgrading Community based Piped Water Services with Private Sector Support Project,” tagged as the “Second Generation Project.”


Midterm Review and Verification Survey for Water and Sanitation Hibah

An overview of the allocations of service connections supported by the Water and Sanitation (W&S) Hibah program is given in the following table. The total allocation of service connections supported by the program is 82,000: 77,000 for water supply (target W&S Hibah: 70,000) and 5,000 for sanitation (target W&S Hibah: 10,000).  The table also indicates the achievements per batch for water supply and sanitation house connections.

Design Summary and Implementation Document - WSI Indonesia

The Water and Sanitation Initiative (WSI) was announced by the Government of Australia (GoA) in December 2008.  Its core objectives are to:

  • Expand access to water supply and sanitation services, particularly for the poor, women, and children in schools;
  • Make water and sanitation services more sustainable by supporting sector reform and capacity building;
  • Improve the health and quality of life of the poor and vulnerable by increasing their understanding of good hygiene practices, as well as by expanding their access to water supply and sanitation services.

The approved funding for WSI is A$300 million, of which A$100 million will be channelled through multilateral development agencies and A$200 million to bilateral country programs, including Indonesia.  Bilateral programs are expected to be completed by end-June 2011.
