ECONOMIC CONSULTING ASSOCIATES

The objective of this assignment was to develop a framework to be used by the Government of Indonesia to improve urban water service provisions through efficient allocation of available sources of finance for the sector to appropriate investment or service improvement projects. The framework includes an incentive based investment grants that are accompanied by technical assistance and capacity building component. To support the framework, a self-assessment tool (SAT) for local governments and water utilities (PDAMs) was developed to measure baseline performance and monitor progress. The framework has been accepted by the GoI and is planned to be implemented by mid-2017 and the SAT is currently being piloted in selected PDAMs.
