According to United Nations Development Program (UNDP), more than 74% of Indonesian population will live in cities by 2030. Currently, Indonesia has the fastest urbanization growth in Asia with annual average rate of 4.4% (faster than China and India).
World Bank reported in 2019 that cities and municipalities in Indonesia generate an estimated 105,000 tons of solid waste a day. That number is expected to increase to 150,000 tons per day by 2025. However, 40 percent of the country’s 142 million urban residents still do not have access to basic waste collection services.
Solid waste management become critical in urban infrastructure development and increasingly gets higher priority in the national agenda. In 2017, Government issued Policy and National Strategy on Municipal Solid Waste Management. Furthermore, in 2018, Government issued Presidential Decree no 35/2018 for Acceleration of Waste to Energy Facility Development in 12 cities in Indonesia. In 2020, Indonesia launched National Plastic Action Partnerships which outlines the country’s strategy to address plastic waste issue.
