The city of Yogyakarta, is a city that is geographically crossed by three major rivers, which divide it from West to East namely Winongo River, Code and Gajah Wong. Increasingly dense settlements due to the high number of people who choose to settle in the city of Yogyakarta causes the choice to live more narrowly and one of the spaces used is the riverbank area.

Materials and methods

Research is descriptive analysis. Use secondary data. Assessing how prepared Yogyakarta is as a Healthy City in solving slums.


The area of slums in the city of Yogyakarta in the period of 2010 to 2014 continued to decline, which amounted to 99.59 hectares in 2010 decreased to 81.12 hectares in 2014. The extent of this slum area experienced a significant increase in 2015 became 264.89 hectares or 8.15% of the total area of Yogyakarta City. While 2017 has dropped to 144 hectares. The local government of the City of Yogyakarta targets for 2019 to be zero hectares of slums to support the national program target of 100-0-100, namely 100 percent sanitation, zero percent slums, and 100 percent access to clean water by the end of 2019.


The area of slums is still relatively high. The size of the residential area has decreased compared to 2015 and is still very high compared to before 2015. Local Government of Yogyakarta City Must work hard to accelerate efforts to improve the settlement environment so that the target of zero percent of slum areas can be achieved.
