Significant details

The Jakarta Urgent Flood Mitigation Project (JUFMP) aims to reduce the risk of flooding to the city of Jakarta. In order to do so, it plans to rehabilitate a selection of waterways and retention basins - mostly via dredging and sludge disposal - thereby restoring their capacity to carry the original design flows. The project is expected to include resettlement and a capacity building component. The Ministry of Public Works and the provincial government of Jakarta (DKI) requested the NCEA  to advise on the Terms of Reference (ToR) for the EIA for this project.

The NCEA therefore formed a working group and issued an advice on ToR in which it provides guidelines for the EIA for this project. Due to the involvement of the World Bank in the project, these guidelines are designed to meet the standards of both the Indonesian EIA commission and the World Bank. The NCEA's advice contains the following sections as advised elements of the EIA study:

  • Resettlement of people living on waterway embankments, near retention basins, or at proposed disposal sites;
  • Dredging of channel, drain banks and retention basins;
  • Rehabilitation of embankments;
  • Processing of sludge;
  • Transport of sludge;
  • Disposal of sludge.
