Climate Technology Centre and Network Meeting in Jakarta

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) recently held a stakeholders consultation meeting on Hydrodynamic Modelling for Flood Reduction in Jakarta.

Jakarta, as the capital of Indonesia, is currently facing serious problem related to the sea level rises, floods and land subsidence and the objectives of CTCN technical assistance are to better assess flood risks and hazards, and design climate-resilient pathways to reduce the magnitude and scale of the impacts from the flooding.

The Pre kick-off meeting as stakeholders consultation on 28 July 2016 in Jakarta was the first stage of knowledge transfer under the CTCN technical assistance entitled “Hydrodynamic modelling for flood reduction and climate resilient infrastructure development pathways in Jakarta”.

The expected results of this technical assistance:

  • a hydrodynamic flood model that can be used to evaluate a number of hard and soft engineering interventions to reduce the risk of flooding;
  • a socio-cultural survey to examine inhabitants’ perceptions of flooding, levels of acceptable risks and preferred adaptation options;
  • a series of technology transfer workshops to increase local capacity in high resolution hydrodynamic modelling and use of the model;
  • resultant policy and planning recommendations to reduce flood hazards, risk and vulnerability;
  • a roadmap to sustain and expand the project using additional funding streams.

The technical assistance supported by CTCN is led by DHI.

The main in-country partners are the Jakarta Research Council (JRC), experts from Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi (BPPT),  Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia (LIPI), and Academia from universities in Indonesia.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
