Sustainable Urban Development

Indonesia is expected to be able to implement the concept of sustainability. Through sustainable development, the stakeholders can contribute in reducing the impact of climate change on global implications. The challenge is how to change the paradigm of society which have huge influence in determining the accomplishment of the concept itself and to deliver the concept for a better living for society. There are 6 aspects that must be addressed in performing sustainable development concept :

Among the best economies of the G20, Indonesia is the largest economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and ASEAN is among the most dynamic regions in the world. Awarded Investment Grade rating by the Standard & Poor’s (S&P), Indonesia is bolstering infrastructure development and expansion projects across the world’s largest archipelago, that altogether poses a new challenge in market supply – demand for building and finishing materials. At the same time, the ongoing “One Million Houses” development program by the government has driven the rising demand for building and finishing materials.

As expected, capital Jakarta and its greater areas show the largest and fastest rate of urban development. However, the drawback of the mobilization itself created major challenges, namely traffic congestion, dense population, floods, pollution, high energy and water consumption. Meanwhile, a great concern of land availability decreases, while the price of the property within Jakarta increases.

The private sector plays a leading role in building up satellite cities complemented with commercial, industrial, education and entertainment centers, which has self-sustaining features, smart technology, and integrated transportation. New urban developments have been driven by the growing intra-city and inter-city infrastructure developments interconnecting Jakarta with cities of Bogor, Tangerang, Bekasi, Depok (Jabodetabek).

With a total population exceeding 30 million in a total area of 4,384 square kilometers (1,693 sq mi), the metropolitan area of Jabodetabek is consistently challenged for procuring adequate supply of building and finishing materials for general construction, property development projects and industrial complex. So strong is the pressure for creating urban infrastructure and facilities that enjoying a good living environment is still a dream for Jabodetabek residents and visitors.

In pursuit of turning the dream into reality of urban development acceleration, IndoBuildTech Jakarta is coming up at the right time as a marketplace for urban development stakeholders such as contractors, professionals, manufacturers and project planners to have direct interactions that will lead to business deals for rendering a contribution to urban development.
