Combat water shortage by supporting land use improvement in forest areas in Indonesia

Acronimo INDON

Abstract A worldwide increasing demand of drinking water and unreliable water quality are main issues that urge sustainable groundwater use and therefore require a coherent groundwater policy, especially in highly populated areas like the island of Java in Indonesia. In this proposed preliminary project the Institute of Earth Science (IST) intends to launch a collaboration with the Faculty of Forestry, University Gadjah Mada (UGM), the oldest and largest state university in Indonesia, with the goal to study the effect of deforestation and agro-forestry on the groundwater composition in terms of its use as drinking water.
