According to American Pubic Works Assocication (Stone, 1974 in Kodoatie, R.J., 2005) infrastructure is physical facilities, which built and needed by public agencies for governmental functions to serve spatial, transportation, water and sanitation, energy and environmental issues and other similar services as to facilitate social and economic goals.

Nowadays, the infrastructure development in Indonesia is planned and implemented in incremental way and very sporadic. These conditions hamper infrastructure delivery to the citizen. Most of the people have not got proper services and the infrastructure provision spreads unevenly. Due to those reasons, Indonesia Infrastructure Research Institute comes up to assist and involve in creating better, integrated and sustainable solution for future development.
We have professionals and academies with excellent background and expertise in spatial planning, transportation, energy, water and sanitation and also environment. With all of those sources, Indonesia Infrastructure Research Institute eager to contribute in accelerating the more sustainable infrastructure development in Indonesia.
