IWSH Solidifies Plans for Next Community Plumbing Challenge Program in Indonesia

The International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation unveiled plans for the next phase of the Community Plumbing Challenge Indonesia program during a presentation at the inaugural Indonesia Sustainable Construction and Plumbing Conference. ISCOP was co-located with Konstruksi Indonesia and Indonesia Infrastructure Week at Jakarta International Expo, which took place Nov. 6-8.

The new CPC Indonesia program will be presented in collaboration with Badan Standardisasi Nasional, the Indonesian standardization body, and PT. IAPMO Group Indonesia. It will be hosted in the coastal village of Kampung Nelayan Untia, on the outskirts of Makassar, South Sulawesi. The project’s initial focus will be the design and construction of a new public toilet and hand-washing facility, intended to support ongoing efforts to drive further tourism to the village alongside improving local sanitary conditions for residents and the surrounding community.

The new CPC Indonesia program commences with a Design Week project in Untia village, which will run from Nov 18-21. Over four days, a skilled international volunteer team comprising plumbers, architects and engineers will collaborate with local community host partners to develop a design and work plan for the new public toilet and hand-washing facility, which will then be built to these specifications via a larger Construction Week project in May 2020.
