This Field Note is an update on Total Sanitation and Sanitation Marketing (TSSM)’s progress in Indonesia and an attempt to identify what needs to be done before it concludes, in order that its learning experiences and knowledge products serve the purpose of scaling up access to improved sanitation in other provinces of Indonesia, as well as help neighbouring countries in the region looking for strategies to help them achieve the Millennium Development Goal targets for sanitation. In East Java, Indonesia, TSSM is demonstrating a combination of innovative approaches at a province-wide scale, in partnership with the national government and local governments of East Java’s 29 districts. Implementation experience has been promising, with rapid increases in household sanitation access being reported from most districts, following project interventions. Local governments are co-funding project interventions, progressively internalizing the new methodologies and approaches, and scaling up their application to the whole district. Learning is being gathered about how to combine community-level demand creation with consumer-research based enhancement of market supplies of improved sanitation products and services. What it takes to foster an enabling policy and institutional environment for sustainable sanitation programs is also on the project’s agenda for learning jointly with stakeholders.
