Enhanced public transportation

Public transportation has been enhanced in the Tangerang Selatan area via the City’s feeder bus network, which provides services between Tangerang and Jakarta, in turn benefiting the community, while reducing private vehicle use. The Trans Anggrek circle line for example contributes to increasing community mobility around the periphery of the urban center by providing cross city transportation along the city's ring road. 

Green building regulation and pilot projects

Green building regulation and pilot projects are under development in an effort to push developers to apply sustainable concepts in the built environment.

Waste treatment monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation of waste treatment has also been developed with the application of some innovation to preserve the environment and to perform sustainability indicators for the city.

Green public space development

The City of Tangerang is ensuring that green space is preserved in new development projects by requiring that they are included in the development of new areas. The challenge faced in this process is to secure green spaces on roadsides or public spaces due to issues of land acquisition. 

Wastewater monitoring

The City has been regularly monitoring the quality of wastewater produced by business units and hospitals at random within the city area. Over 200 units in Tangerang Selatan City have been surveyed to this date.

Lessons learned and replication 

  • Strengthening interdepartmental awareness on climate change issues helps achieve low-carbon development measures. The main challenges the City has encountered include the varying levels of understanding and awareness of environmental issues within the municipality. Therefore the City is engaging in capacity building, training and awareness programs to improve its departmental knowledge.
  • Developing partnerships between the local government and institutions such as research, universities and the private sector has helped to further the City’s activities. It may increase awareness of the impact of climate change to the city as an effort to mitigate. In particular, these partnerships have helped the community to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste.
