ADB Helps Improve Sanitation in 2 Indonesian Cities

The Asian Development Bank is aiming to help improve sanitation facilities in two key Indonesian cities.

The bank approved July 20 a USD35 million loan to help rehabilitate and expand sanitation facilities in Yogyakarta and Medan. The loan will finance the construction of some 280 communal sanitation facilities in the two cities’ poor regions and two wastewater treatment systems in Medan’s low-cost housing districts.

ADB is also providing a USD500,000 technical assistance grant to the project, which will be executed by the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works.
