Green and Affordable Housing for Low-Income People: Case Study BP2BT Housing in Palembang

Moammar Alzia Viqolbi, Hanna Anindya Anjastari


Access to housing finance is currently inadequate to reach low-income communities, especially the informal sector. Through an evaluative descriptive method, it will be described how the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing with the Regional Government provide adequate, safe, affordable, and sustainable housing for low-income communities, especially the informal sector in Palembang City. The purpose is to find out the strategies and constraints during the implementation of development projects. The results reveal that Government support such as subsidies and the provision of infrastructure and facilities can increase the affordability of low-income people to own a house. The green building concept applied to the project also has the potency to improve the bankability of low-income communities so that they can be more prosperous. However, development projects do not necessarily run smoothly due to banking policies and technical regulations that hinder project development. Given that housing provision is dedicated to low-income people in the informal sector, it will be interesting to discover how the stakeholders can finally support and agree on a financing scheme for them.
