June 2008: Cowater Awarded Six-Year, $18M Contract in Indonesia

The Canadian International Development Agency has awarded a contract to Cowater to manage the “Better Approaches to Service Provision through Increased Capacities in Sulawesi (BASICS)” project in Indonesia. This six-year, CAD 18 million project will assist Indonesia to improve the quality of decentralized social services in an equitable and gender-sensitive manner. It will assist to strengthen and link local planning and budgeting processes in a participatory, pro-poor, gender equal and environmentally sustainable manner, leading to improved social service provision in selected cities/districts in Sulawesi.

This is an exciting project for Cowater and further demonstrates our commitment to and deep interest in promoting development in Indonesia.
