Public Private Partnership (PPP) Seminar
Partners: Cultural Heritage of the Netherlands, Stadsherstel Amsterdam, Indonesia Heritage Cities Network, Indonesia Heritage Trust, Ministry of Public Works Indonesia.
The idea of these Public Private Partnerships, or PPPs, for heritage conservation was first tested in Indonesia during a workshop in 2013, aimed at municipalities and the private sector. An important message stemming from PPP practices in other countries is that the government and private sectors need to cooperate in order to ensure that investment will be beneficial not only for the investors but also for general public. Government agencies can support private investment through policies and regulations. Private investors also need to have some percentage of idealism to save heritage aside from proportional profit making goals.
CIE teamed up with our partners in order to identify pilot PPP projects for implementation, as a follow up to the PPP workshop held in 2013. Three cities were selected as pilots: Semarang, Yogyakarta and Jakarta, which we visited and met with numerous government agencies and private investors.
Following these meetings a general training seminar was organised at the Ministry of Public Works in Jakarta. The outcomes were positive and we will be continuing to assist with the implementation process of these PPP's in the future.
