Adaptation to Climate Change: Decision Making and Opportunities for Transformation in Jakarta, Indonesia
This case study is part of the UNRISD project “Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in
Coastal Cities” which explores adaptation decision-making processes and barriers to transformative
solutions in order to inform more progressive policy making in the context of Southeast Asian coastal
This paper investigates the framing of adaptation across different decision-making levels, the decision
to relocate as part of adaptation, and adaptation planning processes. It also considers the role of planners
and the participation of densely populated informal settlements, known as kampung, in such processes.
Through this analysis, the authors hope to identify how Jakarta can adopt transformative adaptation and
achieve social justice as it adapts to climate change.
