Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Provincial Government expects the new National Development Planning Body Sofyan Djalil who was just inaugurated to replace Andrinof Chaniago could see Papua as a whole in determining development programs.

One of some important issues should be taken seriously by the minister is about the access of transportation to support the development of infrastructure in Papua. “The most important is, in developing Papua, the National Development Planning Body could see Papua as a whole, not partial,” the Head of Papua Transportation Head Yusuf Yambe Yabdi at Jayapura on Thursday (13/8/2015).

Besides of the access of transportation, another thing should be taken into account by Bappenas is the availability of electric as a development support. “The development of energy should be a priority. We build road because many people is still lived in the darkness. If it so, it’s just waste of time,” he said.

The sustainable management for Papua, according to Yusuf is to develop the infrastructure according to regulation, that yet to be operated by established sector. However, it needs a great human resource that could understand the regional needs instead of sector. “The human resources we already had only the understanding on sectorial instead of regional. The understanding of sectorial is needed to develop a region to be connected with others and to improve any existing potential in that region,” he said.

Earlier, the Regional Development and Planning Agency (Bappeda) considered the development in Papua Province was very different if compared with other province in Indonesia due to its unique geographical condition.

Geographical condition of Papua is very unique; so the concept of development in Papua Province is very different with other provinces in Indonesia because the development in Papua should be done on regional base. “The uniqueness of its geographical condition creates a concept of development on regional base,” Muhammad Musa’ad, the Head of Bappeda Province Papua told reporter in Jayapura on Tuesday (21/7/2015).

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)

Sentani, Jubi – As the rapid growth of housing construction in the areas of Sentani Timur, Sentani and Waibhu, the Head of Integrated Permit and Regional Investment Agency of Jayapura District Henock Puraro said developers should administer the IMB (Construction Permit) first for new housing constructions.

Developers who want to build new housings need to arrange an agreement with the tenure of landowners first. Then, they should complete the legal aspect of their proposal,” Puraro told reporter in Jayapura Regent Office at Gunung Merah, Sentani on Thursday (31/5/2018).

He said his office would soon publish about the spatial planning to the public in regards to the ongoing regional development process. “We will publish the system of city spatial planning including the regulation related to housing construction,” he said.

Similarly, the Chairman of Chambers of Commerce and Industry for Jayapura District Henky Yoku said developers should consider the cultural, social and economic aspects of the local community.

“What is the impact of housing development on the local community? Developers cannot just build new housing then take a profit of it. They should take account of the sustainability of the local community who live surrounding the environment. Therefore there is a value added from this development,” he said. (*)
