Indonesia and Australia collaborate on innovative water security tools

Depok, West Java (ANTARA) – A joint team of Indonesian and Australian researchers has designed a tool to evaluate the resilience of community-based drinking water and sanitation supplies, locally called “PAMSIMAS” in the face of climate change.
The researchers are members of the University of Indonesia (UI), Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Sydney University of Technology (UTS), and the Center for Regulation Policy and Governance (CRPG).

UI researchers Cindy Rianti Priadi and Subuat Laksono were involved in a research project that contributed to the creation of PAMSIMAS.

Speaking in Depok, West Java, Monday, Laksono said that human life was starting to be affected by real impacts from climate change. Therefore, real action is needed to overcome these impacts.

Regarding this, he highlighted the need for steps such as ensuring water storage sources, adjusting materials, pipes and pumps.

In a recent PAMSIMAS presentation, he said that researchers have also designed a monitoring tool called the Rural Water Supply Climate Resilience Monitoring Tool (RWS-CRMT).

RWS-CRMT, being developed from September 2023 to May 2024, can assess the resilience of rural water supplies to climate change, Laksono said.

This monitoring tool has been tested by 100 Drinking Water and Sanitation Facilities Management Groups (KPSPAMS) in 14 provinces of Indonesia.

These provinces include Central Java, Gorontalo, South Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara, West Sumatra, DI Yogyakarta, West Java, Riau, Lampung, West Kalimantan, East Nusa Tenggara, South Sumatra, South Kalimantan and East Kalimantan, he said.

To have climate resilience and encourage economic transformation, Indonesia must have a productive and healthy population, he added.

In this case, Clean water supplies are undoubtedly important for Indonesia, said Laksono.

Due to the importance of preserving water for human life, Indonesia recently hosted the 10th World Water Forum in Bali with the theme “Water for Shared Prosperity”.

WWF participants discussed important issues such as water for people and nature; water safety and welfare; disaster risk reduction and mitigation; government cooperation and hydro diplomacy; sustainable water financing; and knowledge and innovation.
