The OECD Green Growth Strategy aims to provide concrete recommendations and measurement tools, including indicators, to support countries’ efforts to achieve economic growth and development, while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which well-being relies. The strategy proposes a flexible policy framework that can be tailored to different country circumstances and stages of development.

Hide / Show Abstract

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.

  • Executive summary

    Urban green growth policies encourage economic development while reducing either negative environmental externalities (for example, air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions) or the consumption of natural resources and environmental assets, including water, energy and undeveloped land.

  • The economic and environmental performance of Bandung

    Chapter 1 examines Bandung’s economic, social and environmental performance. It first presents how the city’s population has evolved over the last decade as well as provides an assessment of the city’s socioeconomic growth. Environmental trends and green growth challenges are then discussed. This chapter is structured into the following four sections: 
    1) demographic characteristics of the Bandung Metropolitan Area
    2) the BMA’s socio-economic structure
    3) environmental trends and challenges for green growth
    4) Bandung’s institutional landscape

  • Bandung's emerging green growth opportunities   

    Chapter 2 aims to identify green growth opportunities and analyse policies to promote green growth in the Bandung Metropolitan Area (BMA) pertaining to the following six areas: land use and transport; water resource management; solid waste management; energy; housing and buildings; and green goods and services. The analysis focuses on the following:
    1) developing BMA-wide land use and public transport strategies
    2) accelerating investment in water and solid waste as essential urban services
    3) investing in renewable energy and increasing energy efficiency
    4) promoting green buildings and combatting urban slums

  • The smart city vision and green growth in Bandung     

    Chapter 3 examines opportunities offered by smart city tools, and in particular digital technologies, to encourage green growth in the Ban dung Metropolitan Area (BMA). “Smart City Bandung” is one of the driving visions developed by the City of Bandung to enhance the attractiveness and performance of the city. In this context, it is worth exploring how existing smart city projects can support BMA’s green growth and how they can be enhanced. This chapter is structured into the following five sections:
    1) tailoring Bandung’s smart city vision to green growth objectives
    2) enhancing data and knowledge on green growth Bandung
    3) enhancing transport and energy infrastructure’s performance
    4) making Bandung resilient to natural disaster risk
    5) ensuring inclusive development.
    This chapter benefited from discussions at the third OECD Knowledge-Sharing Workshop on Urban Green Growth in Dynamic Asia, held in Bandung on 7-8 May 2015 and supported by the OECD Knowledge Sharing Alliance

  • Governance for green growth in Bandung 

    Chapter 4 examines governance challenges faced by all levels of government, the private sector, civil society and other stakeholders in the Bandung Metropolitan Area (BMA) to implement strategies and policies and encourage urban green growth. This chapter is structured into the four sections:
    1) co-ordination challenges between governmental bodies 
    2) financing urban green growth
    3) international co-operation for urban green growth
    4) engaging and collaborating with local stakeholders.
