Abstract

A sustainable city is one of the programs required to achieve the 2030 SDGs. Although Banjarmasin contains a thousand rivers along which a large population resides for livelihood support, they are still polluted by some people that fail to perform proper subsequent maintenance. The problem of river waste will have an impact on public health. A study on river waste management in Banjarmasin City is essential, specifically in multi-sectoral partnerships. It plays an integral role in organizing a Healthy City. Therefore, this study aimed to understand the experience of multi-sectoral partnerships in river management in Banjarmasin to create a healthy and sustainable city. A phenomenological descriptive method was carried out through in-depth interviews with 16 participants, followed by a survey, and documentation. Data collection through in-depth interviews was conducted from August 2020 to June 2021 following certain guidelines. To ensure the rigor of data (trustworthiness), triangulation and comparison to existing documents were performed. Furthermore, partnership activities were observed, then the data were analyzed by identifying all the statements relevant to the phenomenon or horizontalization. In this study, it was showed that the reasons to join the partnership include: first, community awareness and responsibility due to job description. Second, the factors associated with partnership effectiveness, namely commitment, communication, and control among various sectors. Empowerment of local communities and effectiveness of partnership are needed for river maintenance. It was concluded that multi-sectoral partnerships are important in addressing river management for sustainable healthy cities.
