The overall objective of the Project is the promotion of sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction in Southern Java and Northern Kalimantan as a whole and the project areas in particular. The primary outcome is improved transport accessibility and connectivity.
The project is in-line government’s development plans and a key priority under the government’s 2010–2014 strategies. It is consistent with the recent MCPS of the IDB for Indonesia and is in line with IDB Vision 1440H in terms of prospering the people via planned infrastructure development for economic growth.
The Project, co-financed with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will enhance road transport efficiency and safety generally and improve the road transport network by widening, rehabilitating and building new road sections. The project will also promote regional cooperation, as the rehabilitated roads in Kalimantan are key transport links to the neighboring countries of Malaysia and Brunei.
The project aims to provide basic sanitation services that will improve health and livelihood of communities and to increase the public awareness about Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). The Community Driven Sanitation will help addressing the health issues induced by open defecation and poor sanitation by providing community based infrastructure for sanitation in 13 provinces with a demand responsive approach.
The Development and Quality Improvement of Semarang State University Project specifically aims to improve the access, quality and relevance of the Semarang State University (SSU) through rehabilitating, constructing and equipping the existing and new facilities/infrastructure, as well as curriculum and skills development programs.
