In Makassar, Indonesia, the Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project works with the Smart City program and other multisectoral stakeholders to prioritize, plan, and fund urban health activities on citizen reporting systems, transportation, technology, and waste management, among others. BHC developed a Systems Map (available in English and Bahasa), and the accompanying Leverage Map (available in English and Bahasa). This map’s content was developed in concert with Makassar’s Smart City program and includes input from a wide range of stakeholders and citizen groups. This process is an excellent way to find high impact interventions within complex, dynamic contexts.
