In 2023, the partnership Indonesia joined the Blue Deal. In this partnership, the main themes are flood management and flood safety.

We work in 3 different areas: Tangerang, Semarang and Pekalongan. However, we apply a strong coherent working approach. The Blue Deal Indonesia partnership concentrates on improving water governance and identifying the different stages and levels of implementing plans for Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).

Our work is in alignment with existing government plans, other programmes and the existing water governance systems in each area. As such, in Semarang we focus on improving and expanding the existing polder systems. In Tangerang and Pekalongan, we draw up and implement Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) plans.
