Institutional strengthening

Water quality management is not yet sufficiently integrated in river basin management in Indonesia, which mainly focuses on managing water quantity. Our work involves strengthening planning, coordination, implementation, and evaluation for water quality management to support the development of an Integrated Water Quality Management Plan for the Brantas River basin.

This involves extensive problem analysis that integrates hydrological science, policy research, and the inputs of a large group of stakeholders, as well as consultation and deliberation across sectors, river regions, and agencies and levels of government to identify opportunities for cooperation and resource-sharing and to establish joint strategic commitments.
