2019 - 2019
Finished

Analysing the drivers for good water stewardship and uptake of AWS certification in Brantas basin. Over 2,000 business sites were mapped and analysed, and multiple past and present programs were assessed to analyse lessons learned in the basin. A deep-dive into the Indonesian environmental performance system PROPER was done to assess opportunities for allignment and strengthening on water stewardship.

Joint action on water security and climate resilience in West-Java

Joint action on water security and climate resilience in West-Java

West Java
2021 - 2022
Finished

Driven by the members of the Indonesia Water Coalition, momentum has been created to support joint action and contribute to water security in West Java. West-Java is the center of economic development of Indonesia and consists of a densely populated area where the impacts of population growth, economic development, and climate change are affecting millions. This project aims to enable and create leverage for public-private partnerships through capacity building and strategy development on water stewardship and the AWS Standard.

Stay tuned for more information.

Boosting Sustainability Practice and Performance at The Landscape Level Through Good Water Stewardship

Boosting Sustainability Practice and Performance at The Landscape Level Through Good Water Stewardship

Musi Banyuasin, South Sumatra and Indonesia
Juli 2020-2022
Active

There is a growing awareness especially among agribusinesses on water-related risks within their supply chains and on their dependence of and impact on other water users in the larger catchment or landscape. This is driven by increasingly growing issues like deforestation, droughts (and fires), water pollution, flooding, and growing conflicts between different water users over reducing water resource availability. Water as an asset isn’t valued sufficiently which is leading to overlooked risks and missed opportunities.

Good water stewardship, as defined by the AWS Standard, provides the opportunity to create impact at scale, at catchment or landscape level, and support sustainable production and protection efforts by emphasizing and strengthening good water management and governance practices. While AWS is seeing a growing uptake of its standard at the site level, multi-stakeholder collaborations at the catchment scale are still limited which is limiting contributions to good water stewardship outcomes at the catchment level. Indonesia provides the opportunity to build upon the existing landscape and jurisdictional approaches and seek ways to integrate uptake of good water stewardship as part of these, particularly in palm oil and rubber.

This project is possible thanks to a grant from the ISEAL Innovations Fund, which is supported by:

Driven by the intrinsic principles of the AWS Standard to work at catchment scale, and recognising the strengths of RSPO, GPSNR and LTKL, this project will identify and develop mechanisms to strengthen:

  • District government planning, monitoring and performance measurement,
  • and agriculture standards schemes in their efforts to sustainably transform agribusiness through good water stewardship.

The project will not act as stand-alone initiative, but aims to drive collaborative actions by implementers and practitioners and will therefore build a Community of Practice through share knowledge and experiences.

The Project Objectives and Outputs

We will use good water stewardship as a common denominator to strengthen existing jurisdictional and landscape approaches and their attempts to tackle the challenges on peat land development and deforestation by:


Objectives
Practical guidance for RSPO and GPSNR on good water stewardship
Insights in costs and benefits, including governmental and financial sector incentives
Inclusion of water stewardship into district performance planning, monitoring and performance measurement

 

Output
Guidance documents for palm oil and natural rubber on good water stewardship
Report on financial mechanisms and incentives (at local and global level) for uptake of good water stewardship as part of palm oil and rubber standards at jurisdictional level
A supplemental Indonesia specific AWS guidance document and a roadmap towards adoption of the AWS standard and guidance by jurisdiction in Indonesia
Inclusion of good water stewardship indicators as part the LTKL Regional Competitiveness Framework in Indonesia to improve district level performance measurement
