The monograph on “Urbanization in Indonesia” is the fourth in the series and was written by Prof. Gavin W. Jones and Mr. Wahyu Mulyana. It makes extensive use of data from the 2010 Population Census and other authoritative official statistics in order to provide policy makers, academicians, and practitioners with the most up-to-date information about Indonesia’s urbanization situation.
This monograph is a reservoir of knowledge and it entails a compendium analysis of urbanization trends and other socio-demographic outcomes, and a literature review which highlights the inter-relationship between demographic and social change and policies.
This publication also recommends that development policies pay more attention to current urbanization patterns in Indonesia, to make sure migration and urbanization contribute in the best way possible to growth and socio-economic development in Indonesia.
The monograph is available online at UNFPA website.
