The Joint Cooperation Program is coordinated by Deltares and PusAir. The activities are concentrated in workpackages, in which one or more partners work together on specific topics. The workpackages are further elaborated on this page.

WP1 Institutional Development

in this workpackage the activities focusing on institutional development are brought together. As part of the WP, several workshops will be organized:, two internal workshops, one external workshop and a steering committee meeting. As part of the institutional development, two full-week dedicated training sessions in academic skills are planned to build scientific (publishing) capacity at all Indonesian partners. To consolidate knowledge developed, collected and gained during this and previous JCP phases, a knowledge management system in the form of a WIKI will be set-up, probably as part of the CoEoH. All partners can add their information and documents. To share profile and progress with external parties, an informative website will be hosted.

WP2 Pusat Studi Hidroinformatik

Within this WP the Pusat Studi Hidroinformatik is developed.  The aim is to integrate existing models, tools and data into this operational IT framework. The system will provide data and information services (consistent nationwide data, early warning on disasters, etc.) to a whole range of stakeholders, from government to researchers, engineers, academia; private, consultants and NGOs; and local communities. The Pusat Studi Hidroinformatik is an important instrument to ensure that JCP products are and remain available for now and in the future. Two separate activities are defined: (1) development of the data and activity layer and (2) development of the dissemination (services) layer. Within this activity the framework is set-up: data and models are provided by the other work packages.

WP3 National Hydrological database

This activity will focus on further capacity building and development of the National Water, Weather and Climate Information Services (NW2CIS) started under JCPI-II, regarding (1) long time series of rainfall (>30 yr), (2) real-time rainfall products, (3) rainfall-forecasting products, (4) long time series of water level and discharge and other hydrological series (>30 yr); (5) data validation and analysis techniques, and (6) deriving design events in support of flood analysis. There are two main activities: (1) integration of datasets, in which the available datasets are integrated in the database and relevant documentation is written and (2) data processing functionality, for quality control as well as further analysis such as return period calculation, datafeed monitoring etc. The generated database and functionalities will be incorporated in the PSH.

WP4 Climate and Climate change

within this work package, organizing climate (change) information and communicating this to various stakeholders is central. This WP combines three different activities. 1) Further development of the Climate Field Schools and the Climate Change atlas which aims to support Indonesia’s food security and self-sufficiency in rice production and train farmer organizations to cope with the climate-related challenges. 2) The transition of Indonesian institutes to Climate Services that are more user-oriented, which is required since existing stakeholders have shifting data needs and new stakeholders are eager to use climate information. Finally, 3) further development of capabilities of BMKG to provide Climate Services to fellow meteorological services in the region and the scientific community. This will be done by further developing a dataset with meteorological data for South east Asia and providing a gridded pan-SE Asian dataset. These datasets will be central in the services provided by BMKG as the Climate Data node of the Regional Climate Centre for WMO RA V.

WP5 National Mapping

BIG, the National Geospatial Agency, is responsible for the Indonesian geospatial information and the implementation of the ‘One Map policy’. The One Map policy is aimed at standardizing and unifying spatial data across the Indonesian archipelago, creating a base map for all agencies to use, and making spatial data free and readily accessible for Indonesian citizens. JCP has provided support to BIG during phases one and two and will continue to do so in phase three with training in Lidar (for building extraction and lowland elevation mapping), data integration (using new data sources such as volunteered geographic information), quality assurance and cartography. Through these trainings WP5 will support BIG with better trained staff and standardized methods.

WP6 IWRM Instrument

This activity will focus on further consolidation of the IWRM (Integrated Water Resources Management) framework started in JCPI-II. While the hydrological modeling framework is already set-up nationwide, there is a need for functionality to zoom-in to smaller catchments. In the first activity, PusAir will be provided with the recently developed wflow modelbuilder, in combination with a Delft-FEWS based framework. In a parallel activity, the IWRM framework will be further extended to also include water quality to answer the need for extensive water quality assessments. The newly developed Emission Model will be prepared for use in Indonesia. The model can be quickly applied to any region in Indonesia in combination with any hydrological model. In this activity we will apply it for water quality studies in Jakarta and Upper-Citarum.

WP7 Operational water management for urban areas

This work package contributes to the further capacity building in the field of flood forecasting. In JCP-I and JCP-II, and parallel in the FMIS project, a flood forecasting and warning system for Jakarta has been developed (J-FEWS). Due to limited capacity the system has degraded. The revitalization activities in this workpackage are used to build capacity on the maintenance of flood forecasting systems. There is special attention on the institutional aspects. To provide PusAir with capacity to extend the existing forecasting functionality, J-FEWS is to be extended with FEWS Upper-Citarum. The knowledge gained during this activity should provide PusAir the possibility to further extend the forecasting capacity to other basins. The third activity in this workpackage is the improvement of the rainfall radar products. The process to improve the radar image for Jakarta should provide BMKG the capacity to apply the same procedures to other radar stations.

WP8 Sea Level prediction Indonesia

Under the umbrella of World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), a coastal flood forecasting and warning systems for Jakarta and Semarang is being developed as part of the Coastal Inundation Forecasting Demonstration Project Indonesia (CIFDP-I). JCP provides the knowledge, experience and instruments for this project. In this workpackage together with BMKG the coastal model of Jakarta, developed in JCP-II, is further improved and operationalised. There is an interdependency between this CIFDP system and J-FEWS. Therefore a data exchange with J-FEWS will be set-up to exchange forecasted discharges and water levels, with that contributing to the accuracy of the flood forecasts for Jakarta. The aim is that with the knowledge and experience gained from the implementation of CIFDP-I and J-FEWS, the Indonesian counterparts will be able to independently implement flood forecasting systems in Semarang and other urban areas.

WP9 Operational water management for droughts

By the end of JCP-II the automatic generation of one of the drought monitoring products of BMKG, the SPI drought maps and tables as part of the monthly agroclimatic bulletin, was realized on a stand-alone laptop. In JCP-III this will be fully automated on the DEWS server installed during JCP-II. The agroclimatic bulletin is being used to inform stakeholders (farmers, the general public) about current drought conditions in Indonesia. Other operational drought monitoring products will be further automated in JCP-III and implemented to run automatically on the operational DEWS server. Within this work package, improvement of seasonal forecasting for Java (Indonesia) as a follow-up of the KNMI contribution to the G4INDO-project will be worked on together with BMKG.
