As per 2013, urban population makes up 52% of Indonesia’s total population and it is likely to increase, predicted to reach 68% of overall population by 2025. Traditional models of city development can hinder economic growth, spur greenhouse gas emissions and endanger lives. Compact, efficient cities can alleviate poverty, combat climate change, and make services such as water, energy, as well as transportation more accessible.
WRI Indonesia envisions a sustainable urban environment, affordable urban living, and safe urban experience in big cities in Indonesia. In working towards sustainable cities in Indonesia, we are supported by the expertise of WRI’s broader sustainable cities program under WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities that catalyzes and helps implement environmentally, socially, and financially sustainable solutions to improve quality of life in cities. Our sustainable city expertise lays in collaboration with local and national authorities, businesses and civil society to create safe, accessible, and attractive urban mobility solutions.
