Sustainable Urban Transport Programme (SUTRI NAMA)

The SUTRI NAMA project supports the development of sustainable urban transport policy in Indonesia at national level, which should define the quality standards for the design and implementation of public transport and transport demand management projects.

The programme uses a combination of top down and bottom up approaches that include the following:

  • Upscaling: documenting success factors and lessons learned in public transport and transport demand management that have been implemented. These results are developed further into guidelines for national urban transport policy development.
  • Leveraging: promoting collaboration among various stakeholders to maximise emission reductions.
  • Replication: disseminating and replicating best practices and finalised policies in other Indonesian cities.

These measures are provided additional support by the development of a technical assistance component that is funded by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs of Switzerland (SECO). This is known as the Indonesian Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS), and it has been added to the line-up of SUTRI NAMA measures.
