PROJECT

Indramayu Coal Power

The Japanese government, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), is planning to finance the construction of a large-scale coal-fired power plant in Indramayu, West Java. Local residents, however, have voiced strong opposition to the project.

Residents of the area have already faced various damages to their livelihoods, such as fishing and agriculture, as well as to their health due to the Chinese-backed coal-fired power plant, which has been in operation since 2011. They are concerned that the construction of another huge coal-fired power plant in the adjacent area will have an impact on their livelihoods such as expropriation of farmland and loss of fishing grounds, as well as worsening air pollution. Farmers who voiced their opposition to the project have been imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. Human rights violations by the Indonesian authorities are also serious. It has also been pointed out that there is a surplus of electricity on Java Island, and we are questioning whom the development is for.
