Short Memo: Award-Winning Tarakan


To the delight of the DELGOSEA team, the Tarakan City government won - for the fifth time – the ADIPURA Award, declaring it officially the greenest and cleanest city in Indonesia. Tarakan had been awarded this accolade every year from 2007 to 2010 and are very happy to have regained the top spot in 2012 after being runner-up in 2011.

It is clear that the on-going replication of the Eco-savers best practice from the Philippines, which has been adapted as the ‘Taling’ project by Tarakan, contributed significantly to that achievement, helping the city to reach the indicators set by the Indonesian government.

On the same day, the city also received the ADIVIYATA Award, a national award given by the State Ministry of the Environment to the best school in Indonesia in terms of environmental conservation. Excellent work by all involved – congratulations from DELGOSEA!
