Indonesia Faces Widespread Drought

TEMPO.CO, Bojonegoro - Indonesia is facing a wide spread drought and clean water crisis. Therefore, many regions in Indonesia have made various efforts to address the crisis.

In Bojonegoro, East Java, the local government has announced drought crisis emergency state from July until October 2014. A number of villages there are experiencing water shortage as dozens of rivers and 160 ponds have dried up.

In Tasikmalaya, West Java, local police have distributed clean water by using a water canon, which is usually used by the police to disperse protesters.

In Yogyakarta, drought has hit many places in Gunungkidul.

In the meantime, Director General of Water Resources of the Public Works Ministry Mudjiadi said that the ministry has anticipated the drought, one of them by cutting sown on water for irrigation.

The government has also predicted the drought.

Agriculture Minister Sulaiman said that the drought would last until next month. According to him, there is around 200,000 hectares of endemic lands estimated to be affected by drought.

The biggest drought potentials, he added, happen in West Java, Central Java, East Java and West Nusa Tenggara.
