The purpose of this program was to provide twenty professionals from BAPPENAS with the tools and expertise necessary to implement integrated water resource management approaches when designing climate-sensitive water and sanitation policies and programs throughout Indonesia.
By expanding the participants’ knowledge of integrated water resource management, the participants increased their commitment to the application of these approaches in Indonesia.
Also, through this program, IWC was able to further its understanding of Indonesian water management issues.
The goal of the ALAF program with Indonesia’s National Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) was to develop an on-going strategic partnership between BAPPENAS and the International WaterCentre (IWC) in order to strengthen resilient integrated water resource management (IWRM) and improve water and sanitation services in a vulnerable climate.
