Across the Archipelago

What lies ahead for the Indonesian archipelago, from a development perspective? Sometimes, it is beneficial to use its past as a guiding light. Subtitled "Past and future development around the Indonesian islands," this issue takes studies from across these islands—from their waters to their fields, to their cities and their ecosystems—and illuminates developmental progress in Indonesia, from its past and into its future.
