Indonesia Improves Access to Drinking Water

Bisnis, JAKARTA – Ensuring the availability of drinking water and proper sanitation remains a significant challenge that needs urgent attention. Despite Indonesia's 78 years of independence, the issue of providing sufficient drinking water has not been adequately addressed.

Currently, piped drinking water coverage in Indonesia stands at only 19.47%, serving around 15.9 million households, while sanitation coverage is even lower at 10.16%, serving approximately 7 million households.

The National Medium Term Development Plan (RPJMN) for 2020-2024 had set a target of reaching 30% access to piped drinking water. However, since this target has not been achieved, it is now assumed that this goal must be met by 2030 under the next administration. This implies that the incoming government will need to prioritize the construction of drinking water and sanitation pipelines over the next six years to ensure progress towards this target.

The Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) has set the ambitious target of providing all Indonesian citizens with access to drinking water and decent housing by 2030.
