n Indonesia, flooding and drought are mostly an interlinked anthrophogenic disasters, resulting from resettlement expansion of human beings so that limited spaces of water to be reserved. The case occurs not only in urban area but also in rural area leading the devastation of human lives; and social, economic, and ecological loss. Along with these aforementioned issues, the prevention is necessarily needed for mitigating these disasters. The ongoing IGAF project is “Making Biopori Holes”- a translation of Bogor Agricultural University Research project into social actions for the above burdens. The project is in accordance with Risk Management and Planning. The goals of the Making Biopori Holes are to provide more than 1000 biopori holes with more than 1000 participants getting involved in the project, and to provide a simple tool and method of making biopori holes. The objectives of the project are to provide an simple, affordable, and applicable technology for flooding and drought prevention; and to give multi-benefits for local communities not only for flooding and drought prevention but also for the fertiliy of agricultural soils; and to educate and raise awareness of children, youths, and local communities about the importance of biopori holes for risk management.
Water Satellite program is carried out in the following ways: An interactive participatory software application that helps our target group to study about WASH related issues.

This project aims to strengthen the role of young people in promoting sustainable environmental development in peace-building processes, enhance awareness and develop the potentials of young peace advocates as future leaders in community-based disaster risk reduction management (CBDRRM) and conflict prevention. 30 program fellows were gathered from the Southeast Asian region and capacitated with the skills and knowledge they need to take action on issues related to climate change and disaster management.
This project aims to train local youth to interview various stakeholders involved in flood disasters in East Lombok to understand flood response behavior and relief efforts, Map flood-affected villages and degraded forested land and Develop communication channels and disaster evacuation routes. Flash floods already occur frequently in East Lombok, most recently on 11 February 2017 affecting several villages. There are worries that social forestry will degrade more forested lands and increase flood disaster risk in already poverty-stricken areas. This project will train local Indonesian youths to interview various stakeholders involved in flood disasters in East Lombok (e.g. flood-affected villagers, bureaucrats, farmers etc.) to understand flood response behavior and relief efforts. They will map flood-affected villages and degraded forested land using GPS and drones and produce flood hazard risk maps that will be used to develop communication channels and disaster evacuation routes. These maps will also identify sensitive areas that need protection and degraded areas that require rehabilitation for flood mitigation and sustainable water resource management. Information collected through this exercise will be crucial to all 3 themes of the competition. The applicant is a Lombok-based social enterprise (Samanta Foundation) working with the University of Mataram in Lombok and James Cook University, Australia.
