A high-end geography series that explores some of the fastest-developing countries and cities in the world and assesses how they are dealing with the challenges of the 21st century. Topics looked at include: population structure, the economy, environmental sustainability and the outlook for the future. Each title also features a closer look at an individual city within the country. Indonesia has developed rapidly in recent times to become the biggest economic power in Southeast Asia, with a booming export trade and an expanding middle class. These changes are magnified in Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta. If this impressive growth is to continue, Indonesia must tackle pressing challenges, including protecting its prized natural environment and taking action to help lift its poor out of poverty.
