The background to Jakartas environment and its people is outlined, and there is a description of drinking water provision, waste water treatment, and solid waste collection in the city. The author observes that budgetary constraints restrict the provision of first-class environmental services to the rich- yet he concludes that public provision of services to the poor is essential and offers lessons to be learned from Jakartas expeience.
