Promoting Local Development in Indonesia

We seek to improve the quality of life of local communities through projects for access to clean water, agricultural training and waste management.

Drinking water: the figures of a priority project

The energy transition can only be considered just if it ensures respect for the environment and protection of local communities in parallel with its innovation programmes. Eni seeks to improve quality of life in Indonesia through a project to provide drinking water in the Muara Jawa and Samboja districts of the East Kalimantan Province.
The programme involved the drilling of 4 wells and the supply of as many reservoirs, in addition to five water pumps/engines and the installation of a 772-metre water pipeline.


Beneficiaries and well management

1,600 people will benefit from the new system and have been made aware of good practices for well maintenance. Training courses have been dedicated to the area's residents to promote the importance of access to clean water and hygiene practices in order to increase awareness among all the beneficiaries of the project.

Joglo Tani Kolong Langit: agricultural training for the community

Agriculture is one of the main occupations in Samboja, particularly because of its very large cultivable area. This is why the Joglo Tani Kolong Langit (JTKL) training centre is considered a point of reference for the people who want to share and deepen their knowledge of techniques on integrated production, legume cultivation and the use of vegetable gardens to meet daily family needs.

Through integrated agriculture, trainee farmers are now able to breed livestock to meet their nutritional needs and have become a point of reference for the training centres of the region's most renowned universities.

How to manage waste in the Samboja community

With nearly 70,000 residents, Samboja is the third most densely populated basin in the Kutai Kartanegara regency. Its community is experiencing difficult conditions in many respects, including in the area of waste management.

In order to counter the heaping of waste in the backyard of houses, the local government has set up an independent social group of environmental experts, the "Sahabat Sampah" (waste management team). After asking for our collaboration to solve the problem, the Clean, Green and Healthy Samboja pilot project was launched. The project is based on a complete waste management life cycle through a competition between local communities. During this phase, all residents were asked to keep the space around their homes clean and well cared for and to encourage representatives of other communities to do the same.

Projects in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a blueprint signed by the 193 member countries of the UN in September 2015 which covers 17 goals aimed at the socio-economic development of communities and regions. With the projects in Indonesia, we will contribute to achieving these goals:

  • SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • SDG 6: ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
  • SDG 12: achieve an environmentally-friendly management of waste throughout its life cycle and reduce its release into the air, water and soil to minimise its negative impact on human health and the environment.
