The National Policy Dialogue on Urban Nexus highlighted the relevance of the urban nexus approach for Indonesia and allowed discussing key challenges and opportunities related to its adoption, including in terms of financing and governance. The workshop emphasized the need to move from sectoral to integrated approaches, an underlying principle of the nexus approach and one of the highlights in the “APUF-6 Jakarta Call-for-Action” adopted at the sixth Asia Pacific Urban Forum, organized by ESCAP on 19-21 October 2015 in Jakarta.

It was emphasized that the implementation of future city plans required urgently enhancing the capacities of local governments to adopt integrated approaches such as the urban nexus, as well as mobilize the required financial resources. The workshop allowed discussing current challenges and opportunities in designing and implementing nexus projects by reviewing the experience of the two partner cities of Pekanbaru and Tanjungpinang.
