Indonesia is the world’s most extensive archipelago with more than 17,500 islands. Despite significant economic growth, more than 28 million Indonesians are living below the poverty line, according to World Bank data. These families face much greater hardships in times of economic downturns or natural disasters.

Indonesia is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions with droughts, flooding, and mudslides expected to worsen due to climate change. Currently, nearly 70% of low-income housing is built by the families themselves rather than by the government or private developers.

Almost 25 million Indonesian families live in urban slums with many others settling along railway tracks and riverbanks, and on streets.
