The Eco-district Programme, initiated under the GCDP (Green City Development Programme), aims to develop resilience and sustainability of Indonesian cities. Three cities (Yogyakarta, Semarang, Wonosobo) have been selected as pilot with the aim of developing three sustainable ecodistricts. Based on an understanding of the specific context of each site, a spatial framework is defined which connects all interventions into one easily communicable narrative in which the effect of each project is multiplied. This innovative approach envisions a dot on the horizon for a comprehensive and resilient project and invites all stakeholders to participate in reaching this. The effect of each project is multiplied, and this efficiency is the backbone that defines the Eco-district. The programme is nonetheless aligned with existing urban strategic programme.
