Indonesia is the third-lowest ranking ASEAN country in terms of sanitation quality, according to Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto.“We’re obviously not in the worst position, but that’s where we are. Just look at UNICEF’s data from 2011, which reported that 26 percent of Indonesian citizens are still defecating in open spaces,” Djoko said on Monday at a sanitation conference in Jakarta, as quoted by Antara news agency.
