Highlights

 “Climate Resilient Urban Sanitation in Indonesia: Hazards, impacts and responses in four cities” presents findings of data collected in 2020-2021 from low-income households, sanitation service providers, and local government. The study was conducted in four cities: Makassar, Lombok Timur, Palu, and Bekasi. The purpose of the report is to present findings on impacts to sanitation systems, capacity to prepare and respond, as well as principles of climate resilient sanitation. This report also provides recommendations for local and national government and water and sanitation stakeholders regarding climate resilient sanitation.

The results are clear – climate hazards are already a significant disruptor to safe sanitation. And climate change has a far-reaching potential to increasingly make matters worse. This report lays out the challenges to be overcome and charts a path forward, with recommendations for the government and stakeholders in Indonesia.
