Why

With 68 percent of Indonesia’s population expected to live in cities by 2025 and the rising sea level that threatens the country’s coastal cities, Indonesia faces unprecedented time to turn this challenges into opportunity. Development planning must take into account all essential aspects of urban life, such as public transport and road safety, energy and building efficiency, water management, and people’s resilience against climate change. Not only considering the development inside the city, the government must also protect forests in cities, outside of cities, and along the upstream watershed. Otherwise, citizens will succumb to air pollution, water crisis, and flood.

What we do

We provide technical assistance to policymakers and urban planners to increase the resilience of urban residents against climate change and reduce road fatalities. Our projects include:
