In over 70 years since its independence, Indonesia has been transformed by urbanization, and within the next quarter of a century, its transition to an urban society will be almost complete. Although urbanization has produced considerable benefits for Indonesians, it has the potential to deliver more prosperity, inclusiveness, and livability.

Time to ACT: Realizing Indonesia's Urban Potential explores the extent to which urbanization in Indonesia has delivered in terms of prosperity, inclusiveness, and livability, and the fundamental reforms that can help the country realize its urban potential. In doing so, the book introduces a new policy framework—the ACT framework—to guide policy making. This framework emphasizes three policy principles—the need to Augment the provision and quality of infrastructure and basic services across urban and rural locations; the need to better Connect places and people with jobs and opportunities; and the need to Target lagging areas and marginalized groups through well-designed place-based policies, as well as thoughtful urban planning and design. Using this framework, the book provides policy recommendations differentiated by types of place, grounded in solid empirical evidence.
