BALI WATER PROTECTION
Bali is a paradise loved by people worldwide, blessed by a wonderful culture dedicated to arts & spirituality, abundant natural treasures of mountain jungles and rivers, stunning beaches, fertile volcanic soils, and once abundant freshwater.
Nowadays, Paradise is under threat. The immense development boom of the last 20+ years - that now caters to over 10.16 Million+ foreign & domestic tourists - has resulted in a dramatic water crisis that is not being addressed at the moment. Ironically, if more than 60% of the freshwater is used by the tourism industry, its actors do very little about it (Dr. Stroma Cole, cited in Jakarta Post, 2012)
PARADISE IN CRITICAL CONDITION
Watersheds are drying at an alarming rate
Bali’s watersheds are drying at an alarming rate, mostly due to over-extraction. Yet, Bali is one of the few islands in the world blessed by heavy rainfall and theoretically receives enough water from the rainy season to fulfill its present and future needs. Thus, rainwater only needs to be harvested to balance its consumption and sustain an annual growth in millions of tourists visiting the popular holiday island.
Bali’s freshwater pollution is also growing at an alarming rate due to the illegal trash disposal and
excessive use of chemicals for agriculture farming.
WE HAVE THE SOLUTION!
Despite all the threats to Bali's freshwater, we are thrilled to know how to impulse positive change!
The Bali Water Protection Program (BWP) proposes to impulse freshwater resilience and good practice
throughout the province through 3 subprograms.
Adopt A Well
BWP will harvest rainwater by the construction of 136 recharge wells ensuring rapid freshwater replenishment on the main island of Bali, and also on the nearby sister islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan Nusa Ceningan – also in Bali province.
The island’s topography is ideal to facilitate collection and ensure the island’s supply of water for the centuries to come. How wonderful would it be to collect what nature provides to us: helping nature helps itself!
Adopt A River
There is nothing more powerful than educating the next generation. While the current one can act now, the future of Bali's river heavily depends on what schoolkids will learn. Thus, BWP will ensure that the water quality itself will improve thanks to educational programs targeting schools located alongside the rivers.
BWP will participate in raising general awareness about how precious water is, what the current situation is like,
and how important it is to reduce water consumption.
FOR DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT EACH OF THE SUBPROGRAMS,
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE FULL PROGRAM’S DESCRIPTION
We need help: We are calling for your generosity to help us to save Bali’s freshwater. As a Bali lover, a resident, a tourism entrepreneur, or tourist…, everyone can help us to ensure the island’s freshwater resilience. Each dollar will help us to achieve our goal!
Do some good: We offer you Satisfaction to help restore and protect the most amazing element that Nature offers Humanity: water. We will, of course, send you personalized certificates of contribution.
In order to increase our funding chances, we are also offering businesses to join our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
WHERE IS YOUR FUND GOING?
Once Phase 1 has been reached, part of our team will be able to start working while we continue current fundraising effort for the program's full scope where you find here below the details:
WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT BWP?
EFFECTIVENESS - LONG TERM IMPACT
While the BWP program cannot fix the entire water depletion problem, it has the strong opportunity to significantly contribute to Bali's aquifers recharge and to impulse good-practice freshwater management at the provincial level - contributing to a blueprint for new and best practice water legislation and good practice for Bali's businesses. Our Foundation, as well as our partner Politechnik Negeri Bali University both, have extended field and program management experience.
FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY -ACCOUNTABILITY
No funds will be used until the initial target
is reached then until Phase 2 is raised – allowing BWP to produce
deliverables of subprograms as funding is achieved.
IDEP's reputation is outstanding and its 17 years of existence and clean records deserve your trust. Our accounts are independently audited, published yearly and are accessible on-line, please see
