Ika Agustin Ningrum - Head of the Flood Management Department of the Water Resource Agency in Jakarta - DUTEP 2015

Today, she heads the Flood Management Department of the Water Resource Agency in Jakarta (Indonesia). “Jakarta, like the Netherlands, is under sea level and recently experienced mass floodings”, Ningrum says. “At Delfland I learned so much about pumping station operations, flood control systems and maintenance. I saw how people in Holland had to change their mindset about water and build natural-structured flood control systems.
.
The experience really opened my eyes: how we can manage the water in Jakarta in a way that it becomes a great resource for the city, rather than a threat”. Ika said
