Comparing Behavioral Change Determinants between Two Different Sectors in Indonesia

Commissioned Report

The realization of a sustainable city will require a transition that often involves a shift in social norms (i.e. a shared set of environmental concerns) that give rise to behavioral and/ or technological changes. This study aims to define factors that could contribute to such a transition in Bogor, Indonesia. Bogor is a satellite city of Jakarta that has seen its population grow from 100,000 to more than 1 million. This growth has lifted many out of poverty but created stresses on the environment. In this study, we seek to understand which factors contributed to changes in two policy areas where these stresses are particularly acute: transport and energy. The research used the “Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB)” as the theoretical framework and structural equation modelling for the analysis.
