In collaboration with the World Bank, ISWMP ​​will be implemented under the supervision of the Director General of Cipta Karya and the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR). This program is intended to support a plan in improving waste management for a number of districts/cities related to the national environmental program of Citarum Harum. The priority districts/cities are Bandung City, Cimahi City, Bandung Regency, and West Bandung Regency. It is expected that the positive impact in Bandung Raya regional waste management will significantly reduce the number of waste accumulated in the Citarum River.
