The program is designed to be a systematic and integrated waste processing. It integrates some activities and benefits for the stakeholders. In this concept, waste is not disposed; rather it is processed and optimized. This system is not centered in the provision of waste processing unit but rather, it is focused on empowerment of the people through soft skill. Financially, the implementation of the program will give financial benefits for scavengers and urban poor people. The beneficiaries of the program are scavengers and urban poor people. This can make scavengers and poor people more independent and has the ability as the operator of waste processing unit. Farmers will be benefited by the supply of organic waste. Other stakeholders will get benefit too. All of innitiative will be developed by mutual partnership on their governance and social enterpreneurship with fairtrade scheeme like as model of social venture capital for invenstment arragement; food (rice etc for kilos of organic waste and appropiate an-organic waste packages.
Opened an Employment opportunities, especially for scavengers and poor people by becoming the laborer / operator in waste processing industry.
- Facilitated an integrated small scale sustainable industry development of plastic ore industry, pulp industry, glass industry, and metal industry, at the capacity equivalent to the volume of urban waste and material fraction contained in the waste.
The resulted main products and by products will supply economically valuable organic and processed non-organic to agriculture, plantation, and forestry.
Promoted an innitiative for Indonesian National Standard Technology for the main and network of urban waste management installation at the capacity of 100 m3 to 500 m3 waste / day.
Transformed slum area around the waste dump sites to residentially- and industrially feasible area for scavengers and poor people through self-reliant and sustainable improvement.
Promoted an environmentally-friendly economic region and clean city. And promoted a best corporate social responsibility from industry firms supported and contributed the program & initiatives
Problem: Describe the primary problem(s) that your innovation is addressing
The volume of urban waste tends to increase equivalent to urban population and activity. It is also related to economic growth in the region. Meanwhile there are some materials that can be recycled in the waste. Those materials include organic and non-organic materials that may be utilized for industrial purposes.
Urban Waste Management in the form of sanitary land fill will find it difficult in near future because of the limited area and for fear of groundwater and air pollution. When the waste is burnt or incinerated, it will produce air pollutant of NOx and other dangerous gases. Present mode of waste management tends to result in the spread of diseases by flies and insects from uncontrollable decomposition process.
Urban waste management that utilizes proper technology will be able to process waste at large scale and open employment to scavengers and poor people because they can work as laborers and entrepreneurs of waste processing industry. Scavenger and poor people lived together in particular period of time. They need each other and create social interaction. Social changes are possible because of the ongoing interaction and feeling of solidarity to change self and group towards a better life. Any attempt to empower urban poor people has not been seriously related to waste management and scavenger empowerment although it has independent economic potential and it is also environmentally friendly.
So far, some waste management project tends to ignore aspect of critical awareness and human empowerment towards independent and collective power with strong institution and adequate assets and good governance.
Actions: Describe the steps that you are taking to make your innovation a success. Include a description of the business model. What might prevent that success?
Component 1: Partnership and Governance: establishing the Forum of Partnership including: Formulating the review of policy and local regulation and proposing the betterment of local regulation / policy; Engaging multi-stake holders for leveraging social business partnership with a public private modality scheme.
Component 2: Capacity building: Establishing environmentally-friendly waste management cooperatives, including: Facilitating training/ workshop (including soft skill, management and business development) for the owners directors, and supply chain of cooperatives; Facilitating support of facilities and infrastructures of institutional development, especially about the legal and formal aspects;
Component 3: Facilitating technical support-friendly technology transfer, including: Facilitating training/workshop/meeting serials for the implementation of integrated waste management installation development;
Component 4: Development of social-environmentally-friendly business, including: Facilitating the development of organic/non-organic waste processing installation with food fair trade; Set-uping factories that process plastic waste to plastic ore, Factories that process paper waste to Pulp, Factories that process glass waste; Factories that process rubber waste, and Hazardous and poisonous waste processing installation Unit
Results: Describe the expected results of these actions over the next three years. Please address each year separately, if possible
1. Partnership and Governance: Year I – III
2. Capacity building for cooperatives, scavengers, and poor people as well as related waste-food fair trade: Year I – II;
3. Tool support and transfer of technology of integrated environmentally-friendly waste processing installation: Year II – III;
4. Scaling up with Investment Support for infrastructure of industrial waste cluster: year IV-V
If your innovation seeks to impact public policy, how?
Sanitary conditions in Indonesia, both in urban and rural areas, is still very worrying. This condition can be improved if the new government district, provincial, national governments, businesses and communities, is committed to improving sanitation services in their respective areas, both related to waste water services, garbage disposal, and drainage. Poor sanitary conditions caused not only by residents with limited access and quality of sanitation facilities are available, but also due to the low awareness (and understanding) the community on issues of sanitation and health.
Still limited capacity for planning sanitation services in a comprehensive, multisectoral, and the response also needs to be one constraint sanitation development. Currently not many districts that have a strategic plan, master plan, and project documents for the improvement of sanitation services. As a result of access to funding sources became limited.
With a portrait like that, the central government, provincial, and local government and communities can no longer look at the matter of sanitation as a business as usual. Currently the central government is formulating a road map for the development of sa
