Tangerang City, Indonesia

Climate Villages as Models of Citizen-led Climate Action

Tangerang City, a rapidly-developing and industrial satellite city of Jakarta, faces extraordinary urbanization challenges. Tangerang has expressed its sustainable development commitments with policies and funded programs, and efforts to build collaborations with stakeholders are key to implementation.

One of the national government’s flagship community-based initiatives is the “Climate Village Program (PROKLIM)”, empowering bottom-up climate action management and implementation. A local village’s success in stakeholder engagement for waste management inspired not just its own subsequent urban farming effort, but also the Mayor’s dramatic expansion of this initiative across Tangerang.
