Project Framework

SUTRI NAMA project is implemented by GIZ together with the Ministry of Transportation Indonesia and the Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) Indonesia. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) of the United Kingdom (UK).

The project aims at accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the Indonesian transport sector through the establishment of a national subsidy scheme for cities and transport operators, which promotes the investment in sustainable urban transport infrastructure.

The Sustainable Urban Transport Programme Indonesia (SUTRI NAMA) addresses urban transport with specific focus on passenger transport. The implementation starts with a pilot phase of five years in which the programme is going to be set up and pilot tested through financing and implementation of demonstration projects in seven medium and large-sized pilot cities.

The pilot phase does not cover large infrastructure investments e.g. rail projects, bridges, or road construction for road network extension. It may cover redesigning road space in urban areas in favour of public transport and non-motorized transport. Furthermore, the pilot phase of NAMA SUTRI does not include freight transportation as well as the development of land and sea ports. The integration of different transport modes and types however will be considered in the design of the demonstration projects. This covers for example bus-corridors to the airport, facilities for the integration of different public transport modes, e.g. rail and bus-systems. After the pilot phase the national programme NAMA SUTRI will enter an upscaling phase with a broader scope in further areas of sustainable urban transport. The current timeframe of MRV covers the period from 2015-2030.

The following measures and technologies of urban transport are foreseen:

  • Public transport system improvements (system reform, network, management, operation)
  • Investment in energy efficient vehicles (buses)
  • Investment in infrastructure (e.g. bus stops, pedestrian infrastructure, parking meters)
  • Integrated planning, parking management, informal bus system/private vehicle regulation.

NAMA SUTRI will focus on the following cities during the pilot phase from 2015-2019:
