Infrastructure in Papua and West Papua Becomes a National Priority


The Ministry of Public Works and People’s Housing (PUPR) is gradually increasing the
availability of infrastructure in Papua and West Papua to support connectivity in the
two provinces. Some imp lemented infrastructure projects have even become national
priorities, as set out in Presidential Regulation no. 3 of 2016 on the Acceleration of the
Imp lementation of National Strategic Projects (PSN ).

List of National Strategic Projects in
Papua and West Papua Provinces,
among others, Development of
Trans Papua roads, cross border roads
and roads leading to cross-borders and
construction of State Border Posts and
Support Facilities at Skouw, Jayapura.
Planning of infrastructure
development in Papua and West Papua in
the Strategic Plan of the Ministry of PUPR
for the period 2015-2019, from 35 National
Strategic Development Areas (WPS), there
are four WPS in Papua and West Papua,
namely WPS 31 Sorong-Manokwari,
WPS 32 Manokwari-Bintuni, WPS 33
Nabire-Enarotali-Wamena, and WPS 34
Jayapura-Merauke.

The development of the infrastructure
is not only to build infrastructure aimed
at promoting economic development in
urban areas, but it also builds border
infrastructure aimed at reducing social,
economic and regional disparities.

The budget allocation for infrastructure development in Papua and
West Papua is considerable. In 2015, the
allocation of Rp 5.66 trillion for Papua
Province consisted of allocations for water
resources amounting to Rp 576 billion,
roads and bridges of Rp 4.26 trillion,
settlements of Rp 281 billion and housing
of Rp 415 billion.

In 2016, the allocation for Papua
amounting to Rp 5.06 trillion consisted
of allocations for water resources of Rp
308 billion, roads and bridges of Rp 3.74
trillion, settlements of Rp 250 billion and
housing of Rp 216 billion.

For budget year 2017, the allocation
for Papua amounting to Rp 4.96 trillion
consisted of allocation for water resources
of Rp 411 billion, roads and bridges of Rp
3.72 trillion, settlements of Rp 132 billion
and housing of Rp 85.7 billion.

While the budget allocation for West
Papua Province in 2015 amounted to
Rp 3.96 trillion, which is divided into the
allocation of water resources infrastructure of Rp 775 billion, roads and bridges of Rp
2.48 trillion, settlements of Rp 405 billion
and housing of Rp 78 billion.

In 2016, West Papua allocation
amounted to Rp 2.53 trillion, divided
into the allocation of water resources
infrastructure of Rp 499 billion, roads and
bridges of Rp 1.28 trillion, settlements
of Rp 255 billion and housing of Rp 183
billion.

In 2017, the allocation of West Papua
increased to Rp 2.64 trillion, divided
into the allocation of water resources
infrastructure of Rp 343 billion, roads and
bridges of Rp 1.51 trillion, and settlements
of Rp 129 billion. So the total allocation
of PUPR infrastructure development for
Papua and West Papua in 2017 reached
Rp 7.61 trillion.

The budget for infrastructure
development for Papua and West Papua is
also funded through the Special Allocation
Fund (DAK), where in 2015, DAK funds for
these two provinces amounted to Rp 1.59
trillion, by 2016 the funds increased rapidly
to Rp 6.35 trillion and in 2017 it amounted
to Rp 2.18 trillion.

In road construction, the government
will complete approximately 112 km of
Trans-Papua roads targeted for completion
by 2018. While in water resource
infrastructure development, the PUPR
Ministry is rehabilitating several irrigation
areas. In housing development, efforts
are also made to improve the homes of
uninhabitable residents, through selfsufficient
housing programs. Each is
targeted at 3,500 units. In addition, there
are also special home programs built
for fishermen, medical personnel, and
religious leaders.

To improve the quality of settlements,
slum areas are also handled through the
program Without a Slum (KOTAKU) City
which reaches 41 urban villages in Sorong
and West Manokwari.

The border areas are also gaining a
touch of development, where the PUPR
Ministry has completed the construction of
Skouw State Cross Border Posts (PLBN)
equipped with supporting infrastructure
such as markets, so the PLBN areas can
serve as new centers for economic growth.
