news: ITP appointed to assist the Government of Indonesia in making mass transit systems in the country more resilient

ITP is delighted to have been appointed by the World Bank to work with the Indonesian Government to develop national guidelines on incorporating disaster resilience and climate change into the design, operation and management of mass transit systems throughout the country.  

Not only is this a first project in Indonesia for ITP, but it appears to be the first study of its type anywhere.

Our terms of reference involves three main areas: 

  • development of national guidelines on how to build resilience into mass transit systems; 
  • the implementation of the guidelines in two pilot cities (Medan and Bandung) to produce suggested investment priorities; and 
  • a series of capacity building seminars.  

We are working with Finnish Consulting Group and Universitas Indonesia. The study team will be led by ITP Technical Director, James Reeves, and includes Jeh Chan as urban transport specialist and David Brenig-Jones who will advise on modelling and GIS issues.  

The whole study needs to be completed by March 2021, meaning that much of the study will be delivered remotely, with our local associates having a key role in stakeholder consultation and local data collection.

On learning the good news, James Reeves said ‘It is great that ITP has been appointed to yet another ground-breaking study.  This study gives us the opportunity to build upon work that has been done in other sectors, particularly roads, in many countries.  We are all looking forward to working with our partners and stakeholders in Indonesia’.

ITP’s Jeh Chan added ‘Within ITP we recognize that disaster and climate change related hazards pose some of the most significant issues for transport infrastructure development and planning across the world. ITP will bring its advanced data analytics and map-based visualisation tools to support evidence based decision making, and help to make the world a better place to live in, and deliver on our mission to improve the way the world moves.’
