JAKARTA, July 19, 2016 - Photo taken on July 19, 2016, shows vehicles stuck on a road in Jakarta, Indonesia. Based on the World Bank report published this June, Indonesia is undergoing a historic transformation from a rural to an urban economy. Between 2000 and 2010, the amount of urban land in Indonesia increased from about 8,900 square kilometers to 10,000 square kilometers. However, the high population density further burdens the existing infrastructure and the amount of new urban land added per new resident is less than 40 square meters.
