Description

It was not only 18 months of collaborative research and design on show at the AIC Urban Water Cluster’s recent showcase and exhibition, but also the passionate, vital support of local stakeholders – from grassroots community members to top officials. These are the members of the Urban Water Learning Alliance, poised to carry this research beyond the existence of the Cluster and through to implementation.

On Tuesday 4 December 2018, Monash University researchers joined those from Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB) and Universitas Indonesia (UI) in Bogor, Indonesia, along with 120 guests from government, industry, NGOs, local communities and the media. The day featured presentations on the current water sensitivity of Greater Bogor and on pathways for leapfrogging to a more water sensitive and resilient future.

To support understanding of the work and the readiness of Learning Alliance members to play their part, researchers exhibited posters, models, videos and brochures, and they themselves spent time discussing their work with the roving crowd.
