Over the past 20 years, water quality in Indonesia has deteriorated due to an increase of water pollution. Research and analysis is needed to identify pollution sources and assess contamination in Indonesian water resources. Water quality management is not yet sufficiently integrated in river basin management in Indonesia, which mainly focuses on water quantity. Three Indonesian and three Dutch organisations have teamed up to support negotiation platforms in order to deal with institutional challenges, to increase water quality monitoring capacity, to build an enabling environment facilitating sustainable industrial change, and to develop an enabling environment in support of community concerns and civil society initiatives.
The project Fostering inclusive growth, health and equity by mainstreaming water quality in River Basin Managementï¿½builds on integrated water quality monitoring and modelling within a framework of social learning. The consortium will be able to build links with civil society groups in close cooperation with local, regional and national Indonesian government institutions to clean the Brantas river and secure income and health for East Javaï¿½s population, in particular the most vulnerable groups.
