Local Participation in Indonesia's Urban Infrastructure Investment Programming: Sustainability through Local Government Involvement?
A principal objective of Indonesia's Integrated Urban Infrastructure Development Programme (IUIDP) was to enhance local government capacity to manage urban infrastructure investment and construction. It is argued in the following that the IUIDP has achieved little towards this end because it has remained a programme of central government which is still alien to the local governments who should have adopted it. Local governments have not been motivated to find the funds for repaying the loans involved and they continue to treat the IUIDP process as separate from their traditional budgeting and infrastructure provision activities. Consequently, the programme has not become sustainable.
