The theme of the training was “Learning Jakarta Flood Disaster Management – Batavia Trail Exploration.” Jakarta has suffered flooding disasters since the beginning of the 17th century, due to various factors such as rapid economic development, urbanization, deforestation, land subsidence, and flooding in the Ciliwung River. 

 During the training, participants learned about the history of flooding in Jakarta and also experienced the changes in the river’s force and current while rafting in the river. They also learned about the structure of flood gate facilities, flood control centers, and flood countermeasures in Jakarta. During the visit to the Indonesian Naval Hydrological and Marine Center, participants learned about the effects of tides on flooding and the geography from water sources to the sea.

The Water Resources Department officials explained about the purpose and structure of the project, water level management, and sewage treatment facilities in nearby areas.
