Abstract


Modern society spends more time indoors, which has led to the hypothesis that indoor exposure can better represent the effects of air pollution at the individual level. Studies on the landscape of urban residential indoor air quality have never been carried out nationally in Indonesia. After 70 years of commitment to standardize the health aspects of the home in Indonesia, this study intends to make a chronological reflection on the Indonesian government's policy in residential indoor air quality. Several questions in the national and local context from the previous study were raised and analyzed. Various policies and regulations set by the government are listed in chronological order to see developments and look for regulatory or implementation gaps. The indicators of insufficient ventilation and indoor air quality in many Indonesian urban housings that have been shown in previous studies encourage this study to be important. This study used a chronological review using national and international journals. Previous studies have shown possibilites to estimate effectively the landscape of indoor pollution exposure using a socio-economic approach as a part. In order to discover the housing landscape status in Indonesia, the latest national housing survey results can be used references for further research suggestions.
