Topic Lectures

Lecture I : Creating a Smart City for All (by Marco Kusumawijaya)

Our world is experiencing the most rapid and pressing challenges in this twenty-first century. Cities, in fact, find it difficult to fulfill its role as decent living places for all.Cities are required to be “smarter” in facing those enormous challenges. The question is can we change those developing cities into smart cities of tomorrow?This lecture will explore about the general idea of creating a smart city and how the concept of smart city should be seen as one of the world most viable solutions in ensuring the sustainable development.

Lecture II: Global Challenges of Sustainable Urban and Human Settlement (Ms. Beate Trankmann from UNDP – Indonesia Country Director) – TBC

Sustainable Urban and Human Settlement is one of the goals determined at Sustainable Development Goals, to continue the previous goals of Millennium Development Goals, which should be achieved by UN Members. Nevertheless, not every country has successfully achieved (or will successfully achieve) the determined goals, since many of them have very complicated problems related to urban development and human settlement issues. It makes those issues as global problems and challenges, which should be settled by involving all actors in the world. UNDP, as a specialized agency of UN that has a mandate of supporting countries in their development path, and to coordinate the UN System at the country level, will have a very important role to accelerate countries to cope with those challenges. This topic will explore those global challenges and the way of UNDP copes with those challenges.

Lecture III: “Challenges in Creating a Smart Cities in Developing Countries” (Major of Bandung City, Mr. Ridwan Kamil, ST. MUD) Activities and Agenda

As the urbanization grows rapidly, people activities are concentrated in cities all over the world and so does the development. However, there is a huge clash between the needs and the capacity of the city to support the development, especially cities in developing countries. Developing countries, generally, are still struggling with many unsolvable yet pressing issues, such as poverty, gender inequality, corruption, and most importantly low living standard. Although the idea of “smart city” is considered as a way to reconcile growth and sustainability in order to achieve the sustainable development goals, the creation of it requires a fully integrated approach which less likely to be implemented in most of developing countries. Therefore, this lecture will explore about the possibility of creating a smart city within a developing country and how to deal with the challenges brought up by. The city of Bandung will be chosen as the example on how the concept of smart city has been implemented by its mayor.

Lecture IV: “Urban Geography Models and Smart City Development” – Prof. Henry Way, James Madison University, the USA

Walk through most contemporary cities and the mazes of concrete and steel can be some of the most intimidating and confusing places to visit. Buildings rise up tens of stories from the street and spread for miles out of view. Despite how hectic cities and their surrounding areas can be, attempts at creating models of the way cities function have been made and analyzed to make our understanding of the urban environment richer (source: http://geography.about.com/od/urbaneconomicgeography/a/Urban-Geography-Models.htm). This topic will explore about the role of urban geography models to develop a city to be a smart city, in where a developed urban area will provide high quality of life of the people in some key areas such as efficient mobility, good environment, well developed human and social capital, sustainable economic development, and good infrastructure for information and communication technology.

Lecture V : Smart Water Management in Urban Area – Prof. Seoktae KANG (Kyunghee University – South Korea)

Water is one of the most important basic needs for human beings. Nevertheless, not everybody has access to water, because either lack of water availability or poor water quality problem. Therefore, water problem has been recognized as part of global issues. Water systems often waste substantial quantities of treated water in both the distribution system and at the end-use location, mainly through leaks. Changes in climate and population are making water supplies scarcer in some areas. It is crucial that regions, countries, and cities can be empowered to overcoming global water challenges simultaneously. Modern infrastructures—including urban water grids—face sustainability and resiliency challenges. This topic aims to emphasize the water management problems faced in cities and pose smart water management as a possible solution to mitigate such challenges. It also supports cities to maximize socioeconomic institutions without compromising the sustainability of its natural resources with respect to water and the environment.

Lecture VI : Sustainable Environmental Design and Planning in Urban Area (Andrea Peresthu) – TBC

As the world population urbanizes, the planning and design of resilient, resource-efficient, healthy and socially just cities and metropolitan regions is profoundly important (source: http://ced.berkeley.edu/academics/bachelor-of-arts-in-sustainable-environmental-design/). This topic will explore the link of energy and environment; deep green design and technology; the nature of cities; planning for sustainability; ecological analysis; and sustainable cities and landscapes. It will focus to the importance of the quality of the housing environment in creating a sustainable community. Sustainability involves the construction of homes that are structurally sound, energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and adaptable over time to changing household needs.

Lecture VII: Eradicating Slums to Achieve Better Urban Development (Mr. Bruno Dercon – UN Habitat) – TBC

“The Challenge of Slums” has become one of the world most prominent issues, not partly in developing countries but also in the developed ones. Slumspose enormous problems, such as poverty, economical disparity, social conflict, and environmental disaster. The existence of slums is often associated with the poor planning of urban development as well as the weak national housing policies. In some developing countries, the government even fails to accomplish its main duty in eradicating the number of slums settlement due to the lack of capacity. Therefore, international organizations are expected to share the burden with the national government in order to achieve the sustainable development goals. This lecture will explore the role of UN, particularly UN Habitat in dealing with those challenges and how UN Habitat would like to address several issues:

  1. Improving the quality of existing slums;
  2. Providing access to inclusive, sustainable, and adequate housing for all;
  3. Implementing “Global Housing Strategy”.
 

Lecture VIII: The Conflictual Roles of Bogor City as the Satellite of Jakarta and the Capital City of Bogor District (at Bogor City Hall) – Major of Bogor City, Mr. Bima Arya Sugiarto, PhD. (TBC)

Lies in approximately 60 kms away from one the bussiest cities in the world, Bogor has been playing a major role in supporting the existence of Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta. The close distance between Bogor and Jakarta has become a special characteristic that differs Bogor from the other cities in Indonesia. People come and go everyday. The level of mobilization in Bogor is extremely high compared to the others.As part of metropolitan region, Bogor also faces several challenges, such as urbanization, inadequacy of infrastructures, and unequal development which also necessary to be addressed. Given to the fact, Bogor has to manage day-to-day role not only asa complement for Jakarta, but alsoto serve its own people who live and work within the city. This lecture will explore the conflictual role of Bogor as the Satelite of Jakarta as well as an independent city in Bogor district from the prespective of its mayor. This lecture will also feature the challenges and opportunities for a satelite city like Bogor and how to utilize that.
