Green Growth in Bandung, Indonesia
Bandung Metropolitan Area (BMA) is home to 8.6 million people and is Indonesia’s second-largest
urban agglomeration. Rapid growth has created a number of challenges for the city,
including traffic congestion, air pollution, municipal solid waste and water access
and management. The BMA also faces several acute disaster risks primarily related
to flooding and seismic activity. The area will need to address these challenges in
order to continue sustainable development and to benefit from its environmental assets.
Urban green growth policies encourage economic development while reducing either its
negative environmental or the consumption of natural resources and environmental assets,
including water, energy and undeveloped land. This report, part of the OECD Urban
Green Growth in Dynamic Asia project, explores policies, practices and governance
systems to promote green growth in Bandung, Indonesia, and provides recommendations
for enhancing Bandung’s green growth potential.
