According to ADB website, Indonesia has one of the lowest coverage rates of conventional off-site urban sewerage in Asia. Only 11 out of its 330 cities have partial sewerage systems with only 2% of the national urban population connected to central wastewater treatment plants. The remaining urban population depends on poorly constructed and maintained septic tanks and unlined pit latrines with leachates penetrating the aquifers.
The Project will provide improved urban wastewater services in the cities of Cimahi, Jambi, Makassar, Palembang, and Pekanbaru in the Republic of Indonesia. These cities currently lack any piped sewerage and wastewater treatment facilities. The Project will respond to the needs of urban communities, including low-income households, by constructing new separate sewerage systems and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), setting up local wastewater infrastructure management institutions and strengthening the relevant departments of respective regional governments.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
