Key City Development Issues

 The Strategic Pengembangan Permukiman dan Infrastruktur Perkotaan (SPPIP) produced by the Department of Public Works (DPW) sets out the overall development strategy for the City of Palembang. Consistent with the Rencana Tata Ruang Wilayah (RTRW – Land Use Plan), the goal of the city was to achieve Palembang BARI – Bersih, Aman, Rapi dan Indah (Clean, Safe, Orderly and Beautiful). Specific to the project study area, DPW Decree 63 specifies a protected corridor of 15 m on both banks of the Musi River. Land rehabilitation was called for along the entire length of the river corridor together with appropriate drainage and flood protection, wastewater, and solid waste management improvements.

Details of Cooperation

CDIA-supported activities include: 

a) Reviewing road infrastructure and transport links in the Musi Riverbank area to assess and analyze the impact on the local community of enhancing road infrastructure capacity;

b) Evaluating alternative road expansion proposals and produce a strategy to enable the city to effectively deliver improved connectivity;

c) Preparing a phasing and implementation plan with respect to road infrastructure expansion and its associated impact on local development; and

d) Conducting a comprehensive municipal and project financial analysis. 

Expected Development Outcomes

 The project is expected to lead to improved access to public transport service for lower and middle- income residents. The improved connectivity will also enhance economic activity and generate employment for local lower and middle income residents. Meanwhile, the drainage improvements will reduce flooding leading to both improved quality of life and enhanced productivity.
