Working title:
From A Frontrunner City in Solid Waste Management and Green Open Space to A Leader in Urban Sustainability in Indonesia? The Case of Surabaya City

Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Bernhard Müller, Technische Universität Dresden

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by member states in 2015. The implementation of the SDGs requires an all-government-approach from national to local level. This research project scrutinizes the implementation gaps of SDGs by examining the interaction between actors at different government levels in Indonesia regarding the process and operationalization of policy implementation. Specifically, Surabaya City and Urban SDG 11.7 on green open spaces are selected for investigation as a qualitative case study. The study will utilize document analysis, semi-structured interviews with relevant decision-makers and actors as well as direct observation to study the actors’ interaction for policy implementation. Findings will contribute to the literature on gaps in policy implementation. In addition, the study will illuminate the extent to which policy coherence can be obtained as well as the level of interaction between actors needed to implement SDGs.

Keywords: International development agenda, local development, policy implementation gaps, Sustainable Developments Goals, Indonesian cities
