In Makassar, Indonesia, the Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project works with the Smart City program to prioritize, plan, and fund urban health activities. These activities include citizen reporting systems, transportation, technology, and waste management, among others. The resources below provide more information about BHC’s activities in Makassar.
BHC’s work in Makassar has been guided by multi-sectoral collaborations, including use of a participatory systems mapping process to understand and engage the urban context that drives health outcomes. 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. To learn more, explore the Makassar Systems Map (available in English and Bahasa), and the accompanying Leverage Map (available in English and Bahasa), and navigate the different “loops” and narratives.
