Community Action Plan, Design as Generator, Hybrid Mode of Engagement


While still during COVID-19 pandemic, North Jakarta Public Housing and Settlement Area City Government collaborate with School of Design, Universitas Pelita Harapan (SoD UPH) to craft Community Action Plan (CAP) in 4 slums area at North Jakarta. CAP is a bottom-up design approach and planning in participative manner that will involve all the stakeholders, especially the communities. This approach commonly required direct engagement, however, because of the pandemic it is not entirely possible. Thus, SoD UPH used a specific methodology called Design as Generator that held and expected to give an optimum result in building CAP in this 4 slums area using hybrid mode of engagement. The paper will show that the results of this CAP building using hybrid mode were extended not just in the form of planning report but also be able to start an initial action by the communities to be empowered.
