Reforming BPD to Strengthen Villages

  • Law No. 6/2014 on Villages (the Village Law) gave village heads greater authority and larger budgets to regulate and manage their communities' interests.
  • It is important to ensure that village governance is carried out based on the principles of participation, transparency, and accountability.
  • The institution that is specifically assigned by the Village Law to monitor the implementation of village governance is the Village Council (Badan Permusyawaratan Desa, BPD).

The Role of Kecamatan in Village Law Implementation

Law No. 6/2014 on Villages (Village Law) provides opportunities for village governments to cater to the needs of the community. The kecamatan, being a part of the kabupaten government which have been carrying out the mandate for decentralization, is integral to Village Law implementation. Unfortunately, the involvement of the kecamatan has not been well regulated. The role of the kecamatan needs to be strengthened, given the weak capacities of village governments with varying topography and geographical conditions in Indonesia.
