Abstract: Water is the most essential element in life, it is vital for our survival and it has a crucial role in our ecosystem. Water has many functions, such as firstly for human health, water makes up 2/3 of our body and we cannot survive without water. Secondly for plant health, water is necessary for the transfer nutrients facilitate the growth of plants. Thirdly for animal health, just like for human, water is necessary to maintain the life cycle and survival of the animals. Furthermore is for the earth, water keeps the earth temperature stable, finally water is also used in many sectors to support human life, such as in transportation, agriculture, industries, technologies, etc With the increasing population of the world, innovations are required to maximize the existing water resources; because as the demand for food continues to increase, the source of water remains the same. Adequate funding from Indonesian Government is required to improve access to fresh water and also for the sewage treatment to enable the recycling of water and hence an efficient usage of water. An efficient usage of water is very important and it must be socialized and made aware to the public. The role of the government is to monitor and develop a sustainable usage of water, especially for irrigation in Indonesia rural’s area. In small islands, suitable water infrastructures must be developed to give a positive impact to the people’s life.
