The twinning program which is one of the main activities of NARBO for sharing information was implemented between Japan Water Agency (JWA) and Indonesian NARBO this year. In the program of this year, firstly JWA dispatched 4 staffs to Indonesia from May 14th – 25th, and then Indonesian NARBO dispatched 4 staffs to Japan from June 11th – 25th.Through this program, the elaborate action for improvement of the water resources management in both has been formulated concretely.
Following year of 2005, the twinning program had been implemented. The aim of this program in 2006 is to promote the improvement of system of sharing experiences for water resources management and technology by the close collaboration of practitioners of both.
For this, the site visit to know the actual situation was concentrated in the program. Staffs dispatched from JWA visited site in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang and Yogyalarta, whereas staffs from Indonesia visited sites of Tone weir, Urayama dam and Toyo canal project.
Through these visits, the background of current and future issues has been made clear, and we recognized we would continue the collaboration for both. Especially, both have installed appropriate technology to meet the needs of peoples at the practitioners’ point of view.
We are convinced that this program will give much profit to others. Your joining to this program will be anticipated.
