In environmental ethic perspective, treating water as commodity and later commercializing it is clearly a violation. It is clear than, that in term of right to water and right to housing, of different regulations in Indonesia, although there is recognition on the right to live prosperously, but the formulation in UUD 1945, Human Right Law, and Water Law have not yet in accordance to Section 11 of CESCR. Recognition of UUD 1945 Section 28I Verse (4) that fulfillment of human right is the responsibility of the country, especially government. However, in the derivative laws and regulations, there is evident of denial by transferring the responsibility by providing more room for privatization practices or returning the responsibility back to the people.and have oriented in increasing local revenue by POKJA Indicator of Right Fulfillmentissuing retribution or permitting Fulfillment of right to water must at least complyregulations which substance do not with three indicators of (1) healthy and safe drinkinginclude the aspect of people’s right water availability, (2) existence of mechanism toto water. guarantee continuity of water availability for people’s requirement, (3) affectivity Basically, government has ‘Basically, government mechanism implementation.fundamental obligation to fulfill has fundamentalbasic need of its people, including obligation to fulfill IV.

  • 28. Discourse POKJA support, especially from Law Faculty is very important. This is very important to be done, considering that people who are directly impacted by the policy from local government, often do not fully realize the importance of their active participation in the process of policy making from planning, design, discussion, establishment to the process of implementation. People who don’t realize their rights to participate in law and governance will certainly increase opportunity to be neglected. On the other side, law protection on public access to law information in the form of local regulation and implementation regulations are still significantly lowHuman Right protection as part of the country thus people are only considered as the object in localresponsibility, then in implementing their development. For that reason, it is also important tothree functions, which is legislative function, persuade formulation of Local Regulation on Publicmonitoring function, and budget function, they Participation or People’s Right to Public Informationwill put forth citizen’s right guarantee.

Closure ISTIMEWA Indonesia commitment to respect rights of economic, social, and cultural especially in protecting, respecting, and guaranteeing the citizen’s right to water and housing through CESCR ratification is still in the level of ideas, and have not been realized in term of positive law and program implementation from central to local level. The failure to guarantee economic, social, and cultural rights and silence behavior of the country will have potency to violate Human Right in the omission context. The strategy that must be done to overcome this problem is improving awareness of policy makers, community, and law enforcers on the importance of economic, social, and cultural rights through regulation, education, training or advocacy.
