Project Details

Project Description

The 'Capacity Building for SDG Transformation: a pilot program to revitalise the Citrarum River' has been successful in receiving Monash Sustainable Development Institute funding under its Collaborative Fund covering phases 1 - 2 of the project (of a 4 phase project). Phases 1 - 2 attracted a total of $95,000 in support from MSDI ($20,000 of staff time + $75,000).

The collaboration aims to harness the expertise and experience at Monash to unpack the complexities of capacity building for sustainable development, and develop a framework to guide capacity building activities and learning outcomes. By establishing partnerships and programs for the Citarum Catchment as a living laboratory, we aim to test and refine the pilot, and seek opportunities to grow this idea and monitor our impact on Revitalising the Citarum River over the next 5 years.
