  20. 20. POKJA I n 1994 the UN General has declared June 17th as the Day of the Land Degradation and World Drought Mitigation Day through the resolution No. A/Res/49/115 to increase public awareness about the dangers of land degradation. This shows that the land degradation is a global problem and it is a dangerous process of environmental degradation in the world. The UN General called on all countries and in civil society groups to commemorated, and support the activities related to prevention and control of land degradation every June 17th to raise the awareness of the society towards sustainable development principles sustainable. As one of concern from our country and solidarity to the problem of global land degradation, Indonesia ratified the 1998 UN Convention on the UN Convention Combat Desertification, which abbreviated as UNCCD, through Presidential Decree No. 135 of 1998. UNCCD also known as the Convention Rio, which is the result of Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro with the other couple of environmental conventions, namely the Convention on Bio Diversity/CBD and UNFCCC (Convention framework for climate change).

Indonesia has 6 percent of the worlds water supply. While in Asia Pacific, 21 percent of water supply is in Indonesia. But compared to Malaysia and some othercountries in Southeast Asia, the fulfillment water supply forthe population in Indonesia is much lower. Until now the Indonesian people who have access ofdrinking water is less than 40 percent. The coverage of pipesystem only 17 percent, far below the target that has been setearlier. The network covers only 32 percent of the urban areasand much lower in rural areas. Of course the real scope inthe field is much lower, and in many places, it’s not optimallyfunctioning. Currently, the Ministry of Public Works is working hardto build a drinking water facilities for 15 million family in30,000 village in Indonesia who have a difficulty in gettinga drinking water. and the required budget is Rp 15 trillion.Each year until 2010 Rp 5 trillion is needed.

In Palembang, during the dry rainy season to 0.5 to 20 liters per second. This thing is makes POKJA it difficult for the PDAM distribution with the principles of gravity, so that the water distribution reduced from 3 days to 5-7 days. In addition to supply shortage, the people of Kupang also deal with water quality issues. According to the results of the City Health Office of Kupang, 12 dug wells that serve water tank owned by PDAM and the local entrepreneurs to sell to the citizens is less than 80 meters. Many of them even less than 10 meters. Therefore, the available water was comee from bacteria-contaminated surface water. Rural, the question of the availability of drinking water is more challenging. Almost all districts in the regency of Ku- pang, which are the rural areas, face the clean water crisis. Villagers Lefuleo, West Kupang district must walk 4 km from their village to get clean water. In East Baumata village, North Baumata and Kuaklalo in the district Taebenu, the community can’t afford to fi- nance the operational cost of water pump anymore that need Rp.600.000 per four hours. While in some villages in the dis- trict of West Amarasi, residents are forced to buy water worth Rp. 200.000 thousand per tank.
