Abstract: Benefit sharing schemes have been used as an option to restore or improve displacees’ lives which aims to assist displaced households to adjust to challenges in new life and environment. What can be shared includes cash, training, capacity building, natural resources (i.e, foods, energy etc), authority and privileges to control the land, technologies and infrastructure However, this concept has so far only been offered in developmental projects that are able to generate profit. Generally, this scheme is developed in hydropower and extractive industries (oil, gas and minerals). This research discusses on how benefit sharing can also be applied to DIDR informal settlement eviction by using the application of the Jakarta regional government policy decisions as a case study. The authors would like to explain the potential of benefit sharing for DIDR informal settlement eviction in Jakarta, which displaced 25,355 individuals, 5725 families and 5379 commercial entities from 2014 to 2016. Assessment of the rationales and compositional facial characteristics of the four benefit sharing models proposed by Lebed et al was used in this study. However, this model has been adjusted for DIDR projects. Based on the evidence presented in this study, the model implemented by the Jakarta provincial government has been evaluated as benefit sharing. The study demonstrates that government has adopted polices which enables the private company to gain more profit and in turn share its profits in infrastructural development to help free cities from informal settlement problems.
