Kasih Sabandar

Inclusive Urban Planning Associate I, ITDP Indonesia

Kasih, or as she prefers to be called, Noni, is a passionate advocate for sustainable urban planning and inclusive design. Noni completed her bachelor’s degree in Human Geography and Urban Planning at the University of Groningen, where she developed her love for creating livable, people-centric cities. Growing up in Jakarta, Noni realized that the city was designed primarily for cars and not for people, which inspired her to join ITDP in 2021 to help change that. Within ITDP, Noni is involved in various projects related to sustainable urban design and inclusivity. Her recent works include mainstreaming gender equity, disability, and social inclusion (GEDSI) in non-motorized transportation and electric vehicle projects, as well as tactical urbanism initiatives. When Noni isn’t busy with work, she can be found exploring Jakarta’s vibrant culinary scene, cooking up a storm, or spending quality time with her friends and family.
