MMAF to Visit The Netherlands to Explore Solutions for Flood Problems

A high-level delegation from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of Indonesia (MMAF) will visit the Netherlands from 17 to 21 March to learn how the Dutch have applied ‘Building with Nature’ techniques for flood prevention.

The Director General of Marine, Coast and Small Islands, Dr Sudirman Saad, M.Hum, and the advisor of the Minister, Mr Ukay Karyadi, joined by five executives, are interested in meeting with Dutch coastal and delta experts, who specialize in the integration of infrastructure, nature and society.

The Netherlands has been successful in this approach especially in the salt marshes of the Wadden Sea. Indonesia currently struggles with severe coastal flooding, such as along the coast of North Java, threatening the safety of millions of people.

The governance of Dutch coastal management will be an important topic during the exchange visit, and therefore, the Delegation will meet with Delta Commissioner Wim Kuijken and various ministries.

The visit is organized by Deltares and Wetlands International.
