Hatfield Indonesia working with AHT Group and KfW German Development Bank in Southwest Sulawesi, Indonesia
Nov 28, 2016
PT Hatfield Indonesia has joined forces with German-based AHT Group to undertake a feasibility study for the preparation of a reforestation and integrated watershed management plan within the Mamasa Watershed in southwest Sulawesi. This KfW-funded project focuses on watershed management strategies expected to result in a reduction of erosion and release of sediments that settle in the existing Bakura Dam I reservoir, and the planned Bakura Dam II.
Drawing from a team of national and international environmental resource specialists from Hatfield and AHT, the main objective of the feasibility study is to analyze the potential effectiveness of different watershed management and reforestation strategies. The ultimate project goal is the restoration and rehabilitation of watershed function and improved watershed management. Achieving this goal will not only lead to the optimization and sustainability of critical hydropower resources, but also result in reduced environmental impacts, improved livelihoods of the surrounding rural populations, preservation of forest habitats and biodiversity, and strengthening of carbon capture capacity through forests and agroforestry.
