International Seminar on

"Water Related Disaster Solution"

Yogyakarta, Indonesia
September 6TH - 8TH ,2013

Invitation From Chairman

Indonesian Association of Hydraulic Engineers Himpunan Ahli Teknik Hidraulik Indonesia (HATHI)

It is a pleasure for me to extend a very warm and cordially invitation on the upcoming HATHI International Seminar which will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on September 6th - 8th ,2013. This event is the fourth in the series of international seminar initiated by HATHI which the Seminar's theme is "Water Related Disaster Solutions".

As an isles country with around 17.000 islands and 131 river basin authorities Indonesia is facing problems related to the impacts of the climate change and global warming. The major impacts and threats of climate change in water resources is primarily on the change in its hydrologic cycle pitch, which in turn will need new approaches not only on the engineering and management strategy but also the socio-cultural-economic system.

With this international event, it is expected that Indonesian experts together with international experts will have a better understanding and a new thought in adapting the strategy to reduce the impacts of disaster caused by the climate changes. I believe that the Seminar will become a good forum for sharing experience in water resources development and management in relation to the impacts of water related disasters.

Through programs presented in various topics, this Seminar will highlight important issues to facilitate a forum for open discussion, devise fresh perspective and new ways of looking at the future and set speci?c goals that can be achieved. Discussion and presentation of opportunities, experience and update with new applications in the ?eld of water resources management in relation with water related disasters.

We look forward to seeing you in Yogyakarta and trust you will enjoy the Seminar.

Message The Director General of Water Resources


As an archipelago country with wide diversity of geographical conditions, Indonesia is one of the most natural disaster prone countries that is vulnerable to the major climate change phenomenon, such as temperature, rainfall pattern and intensity.

The main water related disasters could be flood, drought, landslide, high-tide flood, typhoon,and mount erruption wich may cause secondary flood. In additional to these, there are also, either accidental on intentional water pollutions, and the failure of infrastructures due to inadequate design, construction, or operation and maintenance activities.

These disasters have widely impacted to the lifes of affected population as well as local, regional, even global economic activities. Therefore, the disaster has became every one's concerns. It makes the management of water resources becomes more complicated to be multi sectors, cross regional, and multi aspect matters.

Water resources management in Indonesia has been implemented with consideration of holistic approach. Consequently, water resources management is not only for supporting the development through infrastructure provision, but also how to guarantee the sustainability of water resources through the effort of water conservation, water management, and prevention of natural disaster as well.

The goverment of Indonesia has introduced solutions in handling and preventing these water-related disasters, through the implementation of the disaster management covering responsive - reactive approach and preventive - proactive approach.

I believe that some other countries are facing similar problems with Indonesia. Therefore, with variety of experiences and knowledges, this seminar will be very useful for sharing experiences, problems and solutions in preventing the impact of water related disaster

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Yogyakarta in 2013


Water-related natural disasters, namely droughts and flood, landslides, high tide flood and mount erruption flood are the primary killers, and heavily affect millions of people. These disasters are serious impediments to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Huge economic losses can also be ascribed to water-related disasters, including massive impacts to infrastructure, shelter, health and food production.

The influences of climate variability/change and global warming with the likely increased frequency of drought floods and other water related disaster will increase the vulnerability of populations. Demographic changes, urbanization, migration and lack of adequate infrastructure are also putting higher numbers of people at risk than ever before.

Therefore, assessment of the risks and possible negative consequences of water-related disasters encountered by global changes should be comprehensively studied and understood in order to have better solutions.
