InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – For all these years, it is assumed that the good development is about to increase the income in the region, while the sustainable practices would be thought as the additional burden and postpone the investment. This thought which makes business-as-usual and prioritizes the investment to develop the economy in the region, is always adopted.
Referring to Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal (BKPM), the investment realization in Indonesia in 2019 reached 102,2%. But the numbers were not the same with the investment equalization in the regions. This confirmed the urgency in the region ‘to get more investment’ by doing innovation and noticing the sustainable principles.
To realize it, Komite Pemantauan Pelaksanaan Otonomi Daerah (KPPOD), KatadataInsight Center, and Kinara Indonesiahave the initiative by launching Daya Saing Daerah Berkelanjutan Award. It is hoped to inspire the regions to implement the sustainable principles to increase the security and confirm the competition.
It is hoped that the Drafts of Cipta Kerjacould give space to the regional authority to develop their potential within kinds of initiatives and innovations. The regions need freedom to navigate their development in potential and competition – base.
The Drafts of Cipta Kerjashould guarantee the achievement of competition in the regions sustainably and could optimize the natural resources through the innovation and input efficiency to get the output (productivity) in the harmonious balance among the pillars of sustainability (sustainable environment, superior economy, inclusive social, and good governance) for now and to answer the future challenges.
Daya Saing Daerah Berkelanjutan Awardis hoped to change the perception about the good development. It means that the development should increase the security and competition in the regions. The sustainable practices are important to make sure the security in the regions and could take the investment. The regions should start considering the pillar balance of sustainability.
This is the basic of Indeks Daya Saing Berkelanjutanthat KPPOD and Katadata arranged by collecting data and making the ranks to 416 districts based on the 40 indicators of sustainability.
