The Australian Government, through the Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative (IndII), and in partnership with the Indonesian Government, released the final reports from eight applied research innovations in water and sanitation at the Australia – Indonesia Infrastructure Research Awards (AIIRA) Culminating Conference held in Jakarta on July 21, 2016.

Following the Government of Indonesia’s (GoI) major changes to its Public Partner Partnership (PPP) policy and regulation allowing the use of Availability Payment PPPs for delivery of infrastructure including roads, the Indonesia Toll Road Authority (BPJT) and Indonesia Infrastructure Guarantee Fund (IIGF) hosted a Market Awareness/Sounding event for the Proposed Salatiga – Solo Project on 9 June 2016. 

The Government of Indonesia aims to  provide 100 percent access to sanitation by 2019. To develop sustainable, high quality municipal sanitation infrastructure in Indonesia’s largest cities, comprehensive planning and detailed design work are necessary.  

Efforts to support the Government of Indonesia achieving 100% sanitation access can be difficult.  One of the main obstacles faced by a Local Government (LG) is convincing their community of the benefits of sanitation. To help overcome the skepticism regarding sanitation infrastructure, a Training for Trainers (ToT) program was delivered by the LG in Banjarmasin, in partnership with Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative (IndII), to prepare the community for waste water program.

As part of DKI Jakarta’s efforts to achieve a shift away from private car use towards more sustainable public transport modes including buses, PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta) has set itself a target of increasing passenger numbers to 1 million per day, a rise of 70 percent on current levels. To help reach this goal, on Thursday 12 May 2016, the President Director of PT Trans Jakarta, Budi Kaliwono and the Head of DKI Jakarta Transport Agency (Dishub), Andri Yansyah together with Indonesia Infrastructure Indonesia (IndII) team attended a launch event for the new Bus Revitalization Project.
