Governor Anies Baswedan

Anies Baswedan is an Indonesian academic, activist and politician who is currently serving as the Governor of Jakarta since 2017. He is currently C40 Cities Sustainable Mobility Vice Chair.


The city of Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, won the 2021 Sustainable Transport Award and made the public transport system a priority in the last four years. “Other than connecting places, public transport also connects people” says Jakarta’s Governor Anies Baswedan. “Global equitable access to public transport is urgent to stop the climate crisis: to further expand and electrify public transportation more than $208 billion is needed every year by the next decade just in C40 cities”.


Watch his call on world national governments to make public transport equitable.
