Joint research has been undertaken between fiscal years 1998 and 2000 to explore harmonization of development and conservation, among others, with regard to traffic and housing situations in Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Yogyakarta is prominent for its historical and cultural background. In order to address its chronic traffic jam and conflicts between modern and traditional modes of transport, it was found that a comprehensive approach, combining road system upgrading, construction of transit malls and bus lanes, and other "soft" measures, is highly effective. Site-specific approach, taking local situations into full consideration, is also crucial.
An extensive survey on the urban poor and their environmental situation was made. The impact of the economic crisis in 1998 and its aftermath and the impact of a public-private project to upgrade squatter settlement were most closely examined, and useful information for the addressing the poorest people, who seldom receive protection or assistance from the government and the international community, was obtained.
As a result of the study project, extensive insights that may be applicable to other developing nations were developed, among others, with regard to the modernization of urban infrastructures, conservation of cultural-historical heritages, and extending help to the poorest urban inhabitant. These insights, after they are published and open to policy-makers, are expected to contribute to the formulation of city's master plan and to the deliberation of international co-operation strategies.
