Waste management in Tugu Utara – Flood Resilience

The Flood Resilience Programme (FRP) has applied a ‘one river – one management’ approach in Indonesia. It addressed impacts in the downstream community of Ciliwung (Jakarta) and also their causes further upstream in Bogor. One of the main issues upstream, based on a detailed assessment, is garbage and waste. To address this problem, the project set up a garbage processing centre in Bogor to reduce the volume of waste downstream, which has blocked water flow and caused flooding in the past.

The Flood Resilience Alliance (2013 -2017) is a five-year partnership that set out to develop a model that would deliver effective community flood resilience programmes at scale and contribute to shaping the flood resilience agenda of policy-makers and donors.
