Maynilad recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with PDAM Tirtanadi Provinsi Sumatera Utara of Indonesia (PDAM Tirtanadi) and Environmental Cooperation – Asia (ECO-Asia) to implement activities that will assist PDAM Tirtanadi in expanding water service to low-income communities in Medan, Indonesia.
PDAM Tirtanadi and the Municipality of Medan are designing a master plan that will connect some 14,000 low-income households in the said municipality. Maynilad, recognized internationally for its large-scale service expansion projects for poor communities, was tapped to provide the necessary technical expertise. ECO-Asia facilitates twinning arrangements between water service providers to enable the transfer of best practices, expertise, and technology through peer-to-peer exchanges.
