Project Description

The proposed project will support the piloting of an approach and technology for the proposed Revitalization of Informal Settlements and their Environments using a Water Sensitive Approach (RISE) project. Pilots will be undertaken in Makassar City, Indonesia and in the Greater Suva Area, Fiji. In line with ADB's existing knowledge partnership with the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), the piloting represents the first adaptation of CRCWSC's water-sensitive approach to infrastructure in a development context. The technology aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of a water-sensitive approach which uses decentralized, green infrastructure to biologically treat contaminated and polluted water, and in doing so improve the environmental quality and health of the community. Experiences and lessons from the demonstration activities undertaken through the TA are expected to inform technical design, implementation arrangements and cost estimates for the proposed RISE project.
