Smart Waste Management Program: Tackling Urbanization in Jakarta, Indonesia

The 10th annual GPPN Conference, hosted by the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs, featured students' solution oriented ideas and prototypes to address public policy challenges identified by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To participate, each GPPN member school carefully selected up to five student teams to present their projects and compete for the GPPN prize. The result: 32 teams from around the world met in Paris to showcase their ideas on how to solve some of the most pressing global challenges of today.


We propose a prototype for Jakarta to influence citizen behavior in waste management and develop a 360-degree model for plastic consumption, disposal, and recycling. It touches upon business case for integrated markets, is applicable to other municipal and household waste, and can be deployed across different cities. It will leverage public-private-academia partnership (PPAP) to identify and classify infrastructure development and application of ICT usage in waste management value chain. The model will apply mobile applications, enterprise private clouds, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine to Machine (M2M) communications, and Green ICT, to ensure harmonization of waste management policies and regulations.
