Leapfrogging is a phenomenon in which developing countries—whose technological systems are not yet as fully established as developed economies—can adopt advanced technological systems to address current environmental issues. This report assesses Bogor’s capacity for a transition into a Water Sensitive City (WSC) transition and recommends enabling strategies using the lens of leapfrogging.
By doing so, it is hoped that Bogor and other Indonesian cities may avoid features of water servicing models seen in developed economies that represent unsustainable ‘dead ends’, and adopt more holistic and sustainable water technologies and management approaches that are based on WSC principles.
