Flood Planning Decision-Making to Increase Community Resilience in Jakarta

What is it about?

This paper presents a preliminary scoping study for a technologically enhanced participatory planning method, incorporating synthesis of existing information on urbanisation, governance and flood risk management in Jakarta.

Why is it important?

This research provides information to facilitate consultation with government entities tasked with re-framing planning processes to increase public participation. Also, potential increased opportunities for collaborative decision-making and consequent reduction in risk exposure amongst DKI Jakarta’s most vulnerable populations can help to address issues of social justice.
