Foreign Assistance: Actions Needed to Help Ensure Quality and Sustainability of USAID Road in Indonesia
David Gootnick (au)
The Dec. 2004 tsunami, caused by an earthquake in the Indian Ocean near Indonesia, devastated 12 Asian and East African countries. In May 2005, Congress appropriated approx. $908 million in assistance for tsunami relief, reconstruction, and related programs. Using about $350 million of these funds, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) began its tsunami reconstruction program in Indonesia -- which sustained the greatest estimated damage -- later in FY 2005. USAID also announced plans to constructing a 150-mile coastal road in Aceh Province, on the island of Sumatra, with a planned completion date of Sept. 2009 and an estimated cost of $245 million. After numerous obstacles, in FY 2006 USAID reduced the planned road length to 91 miles, extended the estimated completion date to Feb. 2010, and increased the estimated cost to $254 million. It completed the road in April 2012 at an estimated cost of $256 million. This report (1) describes USAID's construction operations as well as factors that delayed the road's completion; (2) assesses USAID's efforts to ensure the road's quality; and (3) examines factors that could affect the road's sustainability. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
