“At SNV Indonesia we don’t just talk, we do. It’s more than what we say, it’s about how we work, who we partner with and the results our actions deliver. We don’t start a project without a plan to see it through. We don’t think we’re helping if it can’t be sustained by local people with local resources. ” Phil Harman Country Director


About SNV Indonesia

SNV officially opened its office doors in Indonesia in 2013, although we’ve been working here providing technical assistance to the HIVOS managed BIRU domestic biogas programme since 2009.

We believe it makes sense for SNV to work here as our areas of expertise align with some of the priorities of the Government of Indonesia. SNV has the technical expertise and broad experience in Asia to help support the Government to achieve their targets. 

SNV Indonesia works in three main sectors: water and sanitation, renewable energy and agriculture as well as the cross-cutting issue of climate change. This is a strategic choice based on where we are most in demand and where we can make the most difference; and also where there is supportive government policy. 

There are four key SNV principles that guide our approach:

  • Inclusive development: we work to specifically address the inclusion of the poor at the base of the pyramid into all our projects and the value chains of businesses;
  • Systemic change: we want to improve how things work to achieve significant impact;
  • Local ownership: we work closely with local partners and we align our program with government priorities;
  • Global solutions in a local context: we harness our global experience and approaches but tailor them to the local context, people, environment and conditions. Equally we also share what works here with our offices world-wide. We learn from each other.

By 2016 we will deliver a minimum of 10 projects across agriculture, WASH, renewable energy and climate change.

We are committed to:

  • Improving the livelihoods of 500,000 people in Indonesia
  • Supporting 20 local organizations, 20 service providers and training 2,000 local staff
  • Training 50,000 beneficiaries
