Information Session on the Newly Introduced UI GreenCityMetrics Rangkings for Regencies/Cities in Indonesia
UI GreenMetric for 12 years has conducted a ranking program for world universities based on six categories, which include setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste management, water management, transportation, and education and research. UI GreenMetric has a solid commitment to become a global platform for universities to play an active role in overcoming the environmental challenges facing the world today. Sustainability are considered important not only for educational institutions such as universities, but also very important for wider coverage areas such as regencies/cities. UI GreenMetric, as a university ranking in the field of sustainability, carried out innovation and adjustment of indicators so that assessments related to sustainability can also be carried out for Regencies/Cities in Indonesia through UI GreenCityMetric. UI GreenCityMetric is hoped to emerge to be a leap frog programs at the local government at the Regency/City on the sustainability issues. In addition, the UI GreenCityMetric will also evaluate the efforts that the government and the community have made to improve sustainability issues in the related regencies/cities. Therefore, UI GreenCityMetric created an event, "Information Session about UI GreenCityMetrics Rangkings for Regencies/Cities in Indonesia" from January 25th, 2022 to January 27th, 2022, virtually with a total of 78 participating regencies/cities in Indonesia during the three days event. The event was inaugurated with the opening remarks by Dr. Drs. Safrizal ZA., M.Si (Director General of Regional Administration of the Ministry of Home Affairs) and Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri Sari, M.M., M.Sc, (Chairperson of UI GreenMetric).   Figure 1. Dr. Safrizal ZA, M.Si delivering his speech   In his speech, Dr. Drs. Safrizal ZA., M.Si stated that urban areas in Indonesia continue to grow with an average growth of 4.1% per year, faster than cities in other Asian countries. The increasing growth of the population living in urban areas provides economic opportunities and vertical mobility. Meanwhile, the surge in urbanization due to uncontrolled urban development will result in urban sprawl. These cities grew beyond administrative boundaries. The occupancy of productive land and even protected areas around urban centers are used for residential development or built-up land and industrial land that supports urban areas. The growth of urban areas, which is not accompanied by the fulfillment of essential urban services such as housing, drinking water, sanitation, and public transportation, has caused negative externalities that impact livability. Cities will experience environmental quality degradation, threat of disaster, clean water crisis, declining air quality, local food security crisis, and in general, it will cause ecosystem damage. Urban area management must be carried out through sustainable development to minimize these negative factors, conceptually and operationally. Sustainable development has three mutually sustainable pillars, economic development, social development, and environmental development. The three pillars are symmetrically proportional to the implementation of the UI GreenCityMetric. “UI GreenCityMetric will be able to strengthen and together to realize the implementation of the Government Regulation on Urban. UI GreenCityMetric eventually can also be a reference for elaborating cities in Indonesia related to environmental issues, sustainable development, innovation, and collaboration."   Figure 2. Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri Sari, M.M., M.Sc delivering his speech   In her speech, Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri Sari, M.M., M.Sc, stated that the UI GreenCityMetric event to Regencies/Cities was based on the background that for 12 years UI GreenMetric had ramkes, ranking universities in the world in terms of sustainability. The GreenMetric network impact in which everyone have the opportunity to learn and share their experience. It is seen that the leadership continues to monitor the development and implementation of the categories and six indicators in UI GreenMetric. So, for Indonesia, we think this is the best moment for us to learn together based on the international standards we have previously established to create smart, resilient, sustainable cities capable of providing support for good health and prosperity for all. With this background, we hope that all can create environmentally friendly and responsible cities to ensure that everyone can follow the latest standards in realizing prosperity and sustainable development goals that can be recognized by empowering smart cities, responsible and resilient cities. "Hopefully, with today's event and discussion sessions, it will eventually lead to the realization of all of our collaborations to ensure and realize that our cities will become advanced, modern cities that we can pass on to our next generation in good condition and capable of supporting a decent and dignified life.” The participating 78 regencies/cities the event were divided into 3 days.
