Jakarta is facing severe problems related to sea level rise, floods and land subsidence.
The CTCN is assisting Indonesia in developing a hydrodynamic model that is capable of producing flood levels under differing climate and/or engineering scenarios, as well as providing series of recommendations to reduce flooding risks, and designing a strategy to attract financing for broader hydrodynamic modelling. CTCN director Jukka Uosukainen met with representatives from the Government of Indonesia and City of Jakarta, as well as other substantive technical experts to review progress and discuss next steps.
Implementation of this technical assistance is led by UNEP-DHI with substial in-country expertise from in country partners including the Jakarta Research Council, Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia, Universitas Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Bandung and Bogor Agricultural University.
