The Minister of Public Works and Housing of Indonesia, Basuki Hadimuljono, attended the United Nations Water Conference on March 23, 2023, where he shared Indonesia's commitment to the Water Action Agenda. The Water Action Agenda is a global initiative to promote sustainable water management and ensure access to clean water and sanitation for all.
During his speech, Minister Basuki emphasized the importance of collaboration among countries to achieve these goals and the need for investment in water infrastructure and technologies. He also highlighted Indonesia's efforts to improve water management, including establishing a national water resources council and developing a national action plan on water resources management.
In addition to these efforts, Peterson Indonesia has also implemented consultation services in water certification programs such as the Environmental Water Systems (EWS) and the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) certifications. These certifications aim to recognize organizations that implement sustainable water management practices, such as reducing water consumption, minimizing pollution, and supporting the conservation of water resources.
By implementing such consultation services in certification programs, Peterson Indonesia aims to encourage more organizations in Indonesia or other nations to adopt sustainable water management practices and contribute to achieving the Water Action Agenda's goals. Minister Basuki's attendance at the UN Water Conference underscores Indonesia's commitment to global efforts to promote sustainable water management and ensure all access to clean water and sanitation.
