  16. 16. Swiss Confederation Towards Innovative Flood Risk Management in Indonesia Stakeholder Consultation Workshop 5 Cities Overview Presentation Bogor, Indonesia 27 and 28 August 2018
  17. 17. • Through our projects in Indonesia we strengthen our knowledge base for complex international issues in the field of water and sub-surface. • We organize and facilitate knowledge debates between Indonesian scientists and policy makers with international experts and coordinate our work with Indonesian knowledge institutes Indonesia, • We realize this by research projects in five main themes that cover our work: • Flood risk: urban flooding, coastal flood defence • Ecosystems and Environmental Quality: nature based flood defences, water (quality) and health, ecological flows • Water and Subsoil resources: (ground)water resources management, catchment hydrology, hydrology tropical peat lands, multi-resolution modelling, water-food-energy-nexus • Delta infrastructure: coastal infrastructure, water tube • Adaptive delta planning: sinking cities, adaptation pathways, water governance Ambition of Deltares in Indonesia
  18. 18. Why is our cooperation with Pusair so important? • Pusair is the national knowledge institute on water resources in Indonesia, the natural partner for Deltares and instrumental in implementing its strategy in Indonesia; • The ambitions of Pusair overlap with those of Deltares where it concerns the desire to pursuing scientific and technical cooperation related to water resources, hydraulics, river and coastal morphology, water quality, hydrogeology, geotechnics, lowlands, climate change, climate adaptation, land subsidence, flood and drought early warning, mitigation and disaster risk reduction, integrated environmental analysis, preparation of master plan for natural resources management as well as feasibility studies and overall Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Indonesia and the South Asian East region and beyond; • Pusair is the partner of Deltares in working with Government institutions, and we can jointly benefit by increasing our knowledge and expertise:
  19. 19. Examples of activities of our cooperation • NCICD-KM, assisting Pusair in: • data and information management; • development of a knowledge management strategy, M&E system, coastal zone database; • Joint Cooperation Program-3 and the design and establishment of a Centre of Excellence of Hydro-informatics • Supporting the role of Pusair in the mitigation of Land Subsidence; • Supporting capacity in the field of water quality modeling; • Exchange of experience and software in field of integrated water resources management, water management datasets for river basins, peat- lowlands, and drought and flood forecasting through; • Training courses presented by Deltares staff in Indonesia • Study tours • Undertaking pilot projects • Development and operationalization of (prototype) databases, and drought and flood early warning and forecasting systems • Jointly organizing national/regional software days –
