The National Slum Upgrading Program (NSUP) of GOI directly responds to the RPJMN (2015-2019) and has been designed in keeping with the principles highlighted to empower the community and to strengthen local government roles for acceleration of the ‘100-0-100’ movement (100% connection to water supply, 0% Slums and 100% access to Sanitation facilities) in order to alleviate and prevent slums in urban and peri-urban areas through infrastructure improvement and sustainable livelihood, for the period of 2016-2019.
The project objectives meet the Key Strategic Thrusts of “Alleviating Poverty” (IDB’s Key Strategic Thrust No. 2), “Prospering the People” (Key Strategic Thrust no.5) as envisaged in the 10 Years strategy (2015-2025).
The project aims to improve the people’s well-being in urban areas through slum upgrading and prevention by way of community driven development and local government participation. In order to achieve this, the project has the following specific objectives:
Improve community access to appropriate infrastructure in order to alleviate slums
Promote collaboration with stakeholders through empowerment of local governments
Improve community welfare by promoting sustainable livelihoods
The project will reach 4923 kelurahan/villages in 116 districts across additional two provinces (Aceh and North Kalimantan) in addition to the existing 13 Provinces covered under ICDD Phase III which included provinces of Sumatra, West Java, Banten, Jakarta and West Kalimantan.
The principal development objective of the project is to support the higher education strategy of the GOI (2015 – 2019), which aims at improving national competitiveness through innovation in Higher Education (HE).
