Jayapura, 26/3 (Jubi) – Humanitarian group Oxfam stressed the importance of synergy among stakeholders in managing water resources to prevent flooding.

“It is necessary to build resilience in dealing with  disasters in eastern Indonesia in general and Jayapura City in particular,” Sunaryo of  Oxfam Papua told tabloidjubi.com on the sidelines of a regional symposium marking World Water Day in Jayapura on Tuesday (25/3)

Input from local communities, women groups, universities and other local institutions serve as important feedback to anticipate future flooding.

Jayapura deputy mayor  Nuralam said there is still a lack of a legal framework to regulate  houses built in water resources areas.

He said recent floods that hit Jayapura damaged several water pipe networks, resulting in disruptions to the distribution of fresh water in the city.
“I hope the local government will consider ‘green’ regulations to control the construction of residents’ houses,” Nuralam said. (Jubi/Sindung/rom)
