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.
