Program Padat Karya Untuk Petani dan Nelayan Papua

Westpa Papua Tabloid, Departemen Pekerjaan Umum serta Perumahan Rakyat( PUPR) berkomitmen menunjang pembangunan infrastruktur dalam rangka tingkatkan perekonomian di Papua. Tidak cuma infrastruktur skala besar semacam jalur perbatasan serta Trans Papua, penyediaan infrastruktur kerakyatan pula disalurkan dengan skema Padat Karya Tuna i( PKT/ cash for work) guna mendesak perkembangan ekonomi perdesaan.

Menteri PUPR Basuki Hadimuljono berkata, Program Padat Karya dilaksanakan lewat pembangunan infrastruktur yang mengaitkan warga/ masyarakat setempat , spesialnya infrastruktur berskala kecil ataupun pekerjaan simpel yang tidak memerlukan teknologi. Tujuannya buat mendistribusikan dana pembangunan sampai ke desa- desa.

Program Padat Karya Untuk Petani dan Nelayan Papua

” Tidak hanya buat tingkatkan energi beli warga, Program Padat Karya pula bertujuan mendistribusikan dana pembangunan sampai ke desa/ pelosok. Pola penerapan Program Padat Karya pula wajib mencermati protokol physical social distancing buat penangkalan penyebaran Covid- 19,” imbuh Menteri Basuki, Sabtu ( 7/ 8/ 2021).

Program padat karya tunai di Papua salah satunya disaluran lewat Pengembangan Infrastruktur Sosial Ekonomi Daerah

(PISEW) oleh Direktorat Jenderal Cipta Karya. Itu disalurkan dengan membangun jalur produksi serta tambatan perahu buat mempermudah nelayan ataupun petani mengangkat hasil pertanian, perkebunan, serta perikanan.

Program PISEW di Papua pada tahun ini dilaksanakan di 20 posisi dengan serapan tenaga kerja sebanyak 346 orang

Daerah Distrik Agats yang didominasi dengan lahan gambut dinilai menyulitkan akses masyarakat sebagian desa di buat menjangkau distrik lain, spesialnya dikala masa hujan. Akses masyarakat salah satunya merupakan memakai kano ataupun speed boat dengan bayaran sewa lumayan mahal.

Pembangunan jalur desa serta pujuaan perahu tersebut diperuntukan buat masyarakat setempat yang kebanyakan bekerja selaku nelayan serta petani.

Kecamatan ataupun desa yang berhak menemukan program PISEW wajib mempunyai sebagian kriteria, ialah kecamatan ataupun desa yang berpotensi berbasis agropolitan, kenaikan zona ekonomi warga, serta rencana tata ruang yang searah dengan pemerintah kabupaten/ kota.

Diharapkan program Padat Karya PISEW bisa kurangi angka kemiskinan, kesenjangan antar daerah serta kurangi indeks kemahalan, dan pemerataan pembangunan infrastruktur di segala daerah Indonesia.

Infrastructure, Social Justice, and National Integration

 

Infrastructure, Social Justice, and National Integration west papua

West Papua Daily. As part of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia, Papua is one of the border areas with various concerns that are far away and difficult to enter into the supervision of Indonesian government stakeholders. With an area of ​​±312 km2, the mention of Papua in this narrative includes the provinces of Papua and West Papua.

In addition to its sizeable area, coupled with a truly diverse natural biota, making Papua one of the regions with the largest contributor to goodness for Indonesia.

Papua, Social Justice, and Unity Issues

Ellyas Paprindey (Chairman of the Papuan DPRD 1974-1977 and Deputy Governor of Papua 1977-1982) in Maniagasi (2001) once stated that the demands for independence by the Papuan people were caused by feelings of dissatisfaction due to injustice for the Papuan people in development. In line with this statement, the Indonesian Civil Society Partnership, Initiative, and Participation Strengthening Foundation (YAPPIKA) stated that the Papuan population considers the government and security forces to be more in favor of the capital owners who are immigrants compared to the indigenous Papuans, as evidenced by the means of production. controlled by immigrants.

Raweyai (2001) in his writings also states that local Papuan communities have difficulty accessing markets, thus limiting the development of agricultural products and the processing of other agricultural products. Siregar (2014) further explained that the local identity group referred to, one example is the Free Papua Organization (OPM) which often has an anti-government attitude and voices the desire of some Papuans to separate themselves from the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia so that it is not impossible for Indonesia to lose Papua -as happened with Timor Leste.

Infrastructure, Government Efforts in Struggling for Social Justice

President Soeharto to Joko Widodo (Jokowi) made infrastructure development in Papua, especially roads, one of the solutions to the problems of underdevelopment, poverty and geographical isolation.

This commitment has been further strengthened, one of which is evidenced by the making of the Papua Special Autonomy (Otsus Papua) policy during the Habibie Administration which was subsequently ratified in the MPR Decree Number IV of 1999. The special autonomy as outlined in the 1999-2004 State Policy Guidelines shows that that recognition, development and resolution of human rights cases are the main elements for special autonomy in Papua (Dewi, 2020).

In Law no. 21 of 2001 concerning Special Autonomy for Papua, it is stated that there are four aspects of development that are the priority of Special Autonomy for Papua, namely Education, Health, empowerment of the people’s economy, and infrastructure development. It did not stop there, the struggle for Papua’s development was further intensified through the program to accelerate development during the Special Autonomy period during the reign of Megawati Soekarno Putri, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, and Joko Widodo with the issuance of several Presidential Instructions and Presidential Regulations.

The program for accelerating development during the Special Autonomy period has contributed to increasing Papua’s development budget. Papua receives at least 2% of the total national budget allocation through the Special Autonomy policy. President Jokowi’s administration has widened the faucet for funding and investment through the Merauke Integrated Food and Energy Estate (MIFEE) program, DTI funding, and oil and gas revenue-sharing funds.

Not without results, one of the development progresses during the 2002-2019 Otsus Papua period that can be seen is the construction of the trans-Papua road. This development effort has opened access to areas that have been isolated, especially in the central highlands, such as Yahukimo, Nduga, Tolikara, and Puncak.

Reporting from the Ministry of PUPR, in 2021 the total budget allocation for infrastructure development for the provinces of Papua and West Papua is around Rp. 8.85 trillion, with details for the Water Resources (SDA) sector of around Rp. 1.27 trillion, roads and bridges of around Rp. 7 trillion. 15 trillion, housing around Rp 995.26 trillion, and housing around Rp 517.18 trillion. As of July 30, 2021, the achievement of the development has reached 44.09 percent.

Minister of PUPR for the Advanced Indonesian Cabinet, Basuki Hadimuljono, also emphasized that efforts to open up regional isolation and improve access and connectivity from land and multimodal, especially the Trans Papua Road with a total length of 3,462 kilometers, are being pursued to improve the welfare of the Papuan people. Of the total length, currently the road that has been through is 3,446 kilometers, with 1,773 kilometers of asphalt, and 1,712 kilometers of unpaved roads.

Infrastructure Development, Connectivity, and Positive Impact for Papua and Papuan Indigenous People (OAP)

In his writing, Apadurai (1999) explains that conceptually, the way to encourage the process of globalization is through the movement of people, capital commodities, and information from one place to another. Connectivity has helped residents cope with the high prices of basic necessities in remote villages. Some residents usually rent a box car together to then shop for various basic needs in big cities (LIPI and TAF, 2018).

Not only from an economic perspective, increasing connectivity also has an impact on the pattern of social relations between OAPs. In the values ​​of the Papuan people, the intensity of visits to relatives living outside the village is important for them and is useful for overcoming life problems in difficult times so that increasing connectivity can make it easier for villagers to visit relatives.

Increased connectivity also has an impact on changes in social interaction patterns of mountain and coastal communities as well as between OAP and non-OAP communities. With improved connectivity, citizens’ access to basic services such as health, education and population administration is also getting better.



Resolution

The efforts made by the Indonesian government in overcoming the conflict between Papua and Indonesia through development have actually been extraordinary. However, in practice, the reality on the ground is often not as planned. In the priority allocation of Special Autonomy funds for development in Papua, it is still not sufficient to analyze conflicts in the land due to uneven development.

The approach taken by the central government should be changed. The perspective on socio-cultural and customary aspects should be seen as a bridge for the involvement of the Papuan people, and not as an obstacle. This makes consultations with all parties, from the central government to high-ranking Papuan people, very important to do so that a new paradigm is created from ‘Papua Land Development’ to ‘Papua Builds’.
