Letter of Intent (LOI)

August 21, 2016

On August 16, 2016 at Research Centre for Limnology – LIPI, Cibinong, the document of Letter of Intent (LOI) between Research Centre for Limnologi LIPI and Diponegoro University (UNDIP) – Faculty Science and Mathematics, has been signed by two sides of each intitution.

The cooperation will be focused on Paleo-Limnology in Indonesian inland water (several lakes in Indonesia).  Prof. Dr. Widowati (Dean of Faculty Science and Mathematics – UNDIP) and Dr. Fauzan Ali (Director of Research Centre for Limnology – LIPI) support this collaboration on the paleolimnology study in order to answer the challenge of Indonesian inland water problems in the future.

Beberapa Sungai di Jakarta Jernih, Kualitas Air Jadi Persoalan Lain

July 3, 2016
Kamis, 19 Mei 2016 | 06:24 WIB

Namun, keadaan sungai dan kali di Ibu Kota, meski harus diakui belum banyak berubah, tapi ada harapan bisa dimanfaatkan kembali. Di beberapa lokasi, nampak anak-anak yang memanfaatkan aliran sungai untuk berenang dan bermain. Di beberapa lokasi, aliran sungai sudah nampak lebih bersih berkat agenda kerja yang digalakkan Pemerintah Provinsi DKI Jakarta. Contohnya di anak Sungai Ciliwung di LTC Glodok dan Kali Baru di Pancoran.  Sampah dan lumpur yang terus ditangani di dua kali tersebut membuat keadaan kali jadi lebih bersih. Namun, bersihnya kali itu masih menyisakan persoalan lain.
( Baca: Kali di Jakarta Sudah Tidak Keruh, Amankah Jadi Tempat Main Anak-anak? )
Sebab, meski jernih secara kasat mata, air di sungai dan kali di Jakarta dinyatakan belum aman karena pencemarannya.

Kepala Dinas Kesehatan DKI Jakarta Kusmadi Priharto mengatakan tidak menutup kemungkinan bahwa aliran sungai tersebut terinfeksi banyak kuman yang disebar melalui sampah yang mengalir.  Kusmadi menilai, fenomena sungai bersih yang dimanfaatkan oleh anak-anak untuk bermain haruslah tetap diawasi. Bahkan, Kusmadi menyebut Dinkes DKI sama sekali tidak merekomendasikan masyarakat untuk mandi ataupun mengonsumsi air di sungai Ibu Kota.  “Sangat tidak direkomendasikan. Kalau sudah di hulunya mungkin saja di sana masih belum tercemar, tapi kalau di hilir sudah beberapa daerah itu dilewati, sudah terkontaminasi. Walapun tampilannya jernih, bukan berarti bebas kuman dan masalah,” ujar Kusmadi saat dihubungi Kompas.com Rabu (18/5/2016).

Menurut Kusmadi, memang sulit untuk melarang anak-anak bermain di sungai. Namun, menurut dia, jika dibiarkan, lama-kelamaan anak-anak bisa terjangkit penyakit kulit, penurunan daya tahan tubuh yang menyebabkan penyakit mudah menyerang.   Kepala Badan Pengelola Lingkungan Hidup Daerah Provinsi DKI Jakarta Junaedi mengatakan, instansinya secara bertahap mengukur kualitas air sungai. Badan Pengelola Lingkungan Hidup Daerah (BPLHD) sudah mengukur kualitas air dari delapan aliran sungai di Jakarta. Tersisa 5 aliran sungai lagi yang akan diukur tahun ini. “Hasil kemarin, sekitar 70 persen pencemaran berasal dari limbah rumah tangga,” ujar Junaidi.

Saat pengecekan, BPLHD biasanya akan membawa sampel air ke laboratorium dan menentukan limbah yang terdapat di dalamnya. Limbah yang terkandung dalam air pun biasanya ada dua jenis, yaitu limbah rumah tangga dan limbah industri.
“Jadi, kalau fisik sungainya memang sudah semakin bagus, kualitas airnya kan belum,” ujar Junaidi.

The 16th World Lake Conference

March 6, 2016

CONFERENCE THEME AND PARTICIPANTS

The theme of the conference is “Lake Ecosystem Health and Its Resilience: Diversity and Risks of Extinction”. The participants are expected to be coming from worldwide researchers, academicians, governments, Non Governmental Organizations, as well as local communities and other stakeholders. The number of participants is selected based on the abstract selection to be conducted by the event scientific committee. It is expected that about 700 to 1000 attendees will participate in this forum.

CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS & DATE

The conference is organized by The Republic of Indonesia; Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Ministry of Public Works and Housing, and Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in collaboration with International Lake Environment Committee Foundation (ILEC) which has co-hosted The World Lake Conference over 30 years.

Visiting and discussion at USM – Malaysia for ASEAN Collaboration

January 3, 2016

With Bureau of Cooperation, Legal and Public Relation – LIPI, we had visited Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Faculty of Biology on December 20 – 22, 2015.

We hope that this is an initial for strengthen collaboration in ASEAN, especially for freshwater biodiversity and aquatic ecosystem.  Next, we will try to make an effort for our activities on our freshwater projects.
