The Flood Resilience Programme (FRP) has applied a ‘one river – one management’ approach in Indonesia. It addressed impacts in the downstream community of Ciliwung (Jakarta) and also their causes further upstream in Bogor. One of the main issues upstream, based on a detailed assessment, is garbage and waste. To address this problem, the project set up a garbage processing centre in Bogor to reduce the volume of waste downstream, which has blocked water flow and caused flooding in the past.
