Green space

Kompas – November 8, 2010
Green space

Rampant unregulated urban development, which environmentalists blame on widespread collusion between city officials and the business elite, has resulted in Jakarta loosing 28% of its green space over the last 25 years – much of it replaced by shopping malls, luxury apartments and government offices. Now standing at only 9.6%, this is well below the 13.9% of green space that Jakarta is supposed to have by the end of 2010.
