BANDUNG CITY - West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil encouraged the district / city government to register assets in the form of abandoned land. The land will be utilized so that in the future there will be no abandoned land.
"I want West Java to become a model for agrarian reform, where there are no abandoned lands. I don't want abandoned land," said Emil - Ridwan Kamil's nickname, when he was a guest speaker at the Coordination Meeting on Agrarian Reform Task Force in West Java Province, Grand Mercure Hotel, Jalan Dr. Setiabudi, Bandung City, Monday (1/4/19).
According to him, after the data there is a next step that must be done is to identify fertile and arid abandoned land. This will determine the land empowerment program. "So there must be data, I request data on abandoned HGU land. Later there will be HGU for arid land and fertile land," Emil said.
For arid land, Emil explained, it could be empowered with infusion farming which is currently becoming the world's agricultural trend. Plants with the concept of infusion farming do not need to be watered, but only need to drink by dropping water without excessive time at a specified time.
Therefore, Emil requested that legal advocacy instruments be prepared for the land registration. This is a step to anticipate if there is land that has a problematic legal status.
Regarding the land that was the asset of the West Java Provincial Government, Emil also requested that no land assets be abandoned. There are around 4,000 out of 5,000 land assets owned by the West Java Provincial Government that have not been certified throughout West Java.
"There must be no land that is unemployed in the provincial land, it must be cooperated in a certain way. There must be no land that is not utilized positively," he pleaded.
