Cities and Urbanization

Back to previous page

Summary

Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country, stands as a country transformed by urbanization. Today, about 151 million people, over half of Indonesians, live in cities and towns, roughly 18 times the population of London. By 2045, the centenary of its independence, approximately 220 million people or more than 70% of the population, will be urban. Although almost everyone has benefitted in absolute terms, the relative gains from urbanization have been uneven within cities and across the country.
