Welang River Basin Academy

Welang River Basin Management Academy (RBMA) final presentation was successfully held on 17 March 2022. This training was tailor-made to support the knowledge transfer and capacity building for the Water Resource Department of the East Java Provincial Government’s young staff. A collaboration with the East Java office, the Netherlands Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, Nuffic, and executed by HZ University and The Water Agency, the training used Welang Masterplan as the learning ground, reflecting on the real situation and challenges in the river. 

RBMA courses ran for twelve months, starting in April 2021 until April 2022. The main goal of the training is to facilitate knowledge transfer and transformation, which has a big potential to be replicated in the future for new DPU-EJP employees to provide opportunities for lifelong learning following the Sustainable Development Goals 4 agenda. The program consisted of 29 lectures that were divided into five blocks, followed by the final block on practical work.

Block 1 – Systems Thinking & System Analysis

Block 2 – Planning For The Future

Block 3 – Stakeholder Engagement

Block 4 – Circular And Ecosystem-Based Planning

Block 5 – River Basin Governance

Block 6 – Practical Work Of Welang River Basin Assignment
