In Response To: A regional approach to environmental quality management / Jakarta-Indonesia (+Bahasa Indonesia) (Yoslan Nur)

This paper is an excellent summary of some of the challenges of managing a large watershed and bay on an integrated basis, particularly where there is a long history of sectoral approaches to development and little recognition of the many values of a Bay that has proved so important to the economic development of Jakarta, West Java and Indonesia !

Our initial experience in development of an integrated mangement plan for Balikpapan Bay (East Kalimantan) supports the authors conclusion that a new and comprehensive approach to management of such bays is needed.

We will post further details of our work in due course. Some details can be found in our web sites: www.indomarine.or.id / www.nrm.or.idw / www.crc.uri.edu

If anyone would like more information on our Balikpapan work especially, please contact Ramli Malik (our East Kalimantan Field Progam Manager - - for queries in bahasa Indonesian) or myself for queries in bahasa English.
