Project Liaison for Climate Change (PLCC)
Short Term Technical Assistance (STTA)
The Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (IUWASH) Project (or, the “Project”) is a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of DAI. IUWASH works with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in Indonesia’s urban areas. The overall goal of IUWASH is to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in making significant progress in achieving its safe water and sanitation Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets by expanding access to these services. The expected results to be achieved are: 2 million people in urban areas gain access to improved water supply; 250,000 people in urban areas gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and the per unit water cost paid by the poor in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%. To achieve the above, assistance provided by the project is divided under three main technical components, including:
1. Mobilizing demand for water supply and sanitation service delivery;
2. Improving and expanding capacity for water and sanitation service delivery; and
3. Strengthening policy and the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation service delivery.
PDAM Serang District struggles with issues concerning raw water resources sustainability, both surface water and water spring. Based on vulnerability level measurements and studies (CCVA), Serang's water resources is gradually decreasing, including those used by PDAM Al-Bantani as their raw water source. The discharge has declined to 35% up to 50% from the initial discharge. As an example, in 1990, Sukacai water springs has a discharge of 60 liter/second, comparing to today's discharge which only reaches 27 liter/second (about 55% decrease).
Decreasing discharge and quality level of water resources will worsen with climate changes that affect rainfall patterns that tends to be shorter (decreased number of rainy days) but with a higher intensity (heavy rain or storms), also the dry seasons getting longer and more dry. As a result of changes land use and the climate, it will affect to the stability of slopes and ground soil that can lead to landslides or land movements that can damage various water resource facilities, and infrastructures which will also damage PDAM's water distribution facilities and/or other public facilities.

The implementation of these activities will be conducted by a third party (contractor), which will be selected in accordance with the procedures established by the IUWASH team, both technically and administratively.
The objective of this technical assistance program is to assist of the process of monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the infiltration program in Serang District and rehabilitation in Kalanganyar intake will be implemented correctly, including the quality, quantity and timing of the implementation.
