Village Funds to be Allocated to Implement Village Maps
Date 7 Februari 2020
The Government will use Village Funds to finance the implementation of One Map Policy program.
One map policy, particularly village maps plays important role in resolving overlapping land claims. Thus, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo instructed Ministry of Finance to allocate budget, taken from the Village Funds, to finance this program.
“There are approximately 77 million hectares of overlapping land, 77,365,41 hectares to be precise or 40 percent (of the total land),” Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto said after attending a Limited Meeting at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, Thursday (6/2).
The Minister went on to say that Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning estimated the village map will cost about Rp25 to 30 million per village.
In addition, to support online single submission system that integrates all data in one map policy, the Government has completed 40 out of 57 Detailed Spatial Plan (RDTR). The President told that budget reallocation is needed so that the RDTR in 34 provinces can be finished in only a year.
“President Jokowi also called for coordination between one map policy and data center to create one data center that can be accessed by all ministries and government institutions,” Airlangga added.
The President, he added, also instructed the ministry to create a roadmap for ministries and institutions, and to plan strategies to add the existing maps.
“There is also a suggestion from Geospatial Information Agency (BIG) to increase map scale from 1:50,000 to 1:5000 to make it more detailed,” Airlangga concluded. (IFR/EN)
