Resource recovery from wastewater provides a significant opportunity in Indonesia. Overcoming some of the institutional barriers, operational shortcomings and financial constraints would be critical to expand wastewater treatment and reduce pollution. Capitalizing on the new technologies to recover valuable resources from wastewater can provide a new impetus for the sector and improve its financial viability.

The report has been prepared based on extensive desk studies and discussion with key actors in the water and wastewater sector in Indonesia. It forms part of a collaboration between ARCOWA SA and PEMSEA, supported by the GEF and UNDP, as a contribution to further mobilizing investment in the seas of East Asia’s blue economy.
