Bali to boost development of poor islands

The Klungkung administration plans to boost development in Nusa Penida, an offshore district that comprises three islands with high poverty rates.

The district, located in southeast Bali, consists of Nusa Penida and the smaller Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan islands. In recent years, the tourist industry has brought many changes to the 
islets, known for their pristine beaches and majestic underwater landscapes. The islands had become the administration’s priority because nearly 70% of the regency’s poor people lived there. The 
regency, cooperating with the provincial administration and the central government, is constructing the Gunaksa port to connect Nusa Penida to other parts of Klungkung on the main island of Bali.
