Sustainable City: Government, Private Sector and Public Cooperation, and Environment Siding with Infrastructure Development

Siti Sujatini


Infrastructure is the mover of economic growth and road and river are infrastructure facilities. Traffic congestion and flood phenomena in urban area can be perceived as the shortage of physical infrastructure, which means space is needed. Urban regulation on physical infrastructure development is part of development process, a product of negotiation that is affected by economic, juridical, and information aspects of the actors.


In the field, the realities are permits are source of income, market oriented urban development, and participatory and community-based development which is more of an implementation of a project. This shows that development actors who possess the resources still focus on their own interests.


The siding on one of the actors as political authority shareholder to less fortunate group will have a positive influence on a more just decision. If the role of the city is recognized as the developer of economic power for all and all actors have the willingness to side with environmental and general public interests, city development will progress sustainably.
