MSc Thesis Rizky Moes: Modelling Peak Flow at 10-minutes Resolution in the Upper Ciliwung Catchment, Indonesia The Indonesian capital city of Jakarta is a typical delta city suffering from regular riverine flooding (Figure 1), usually in the peak of the wet season (November to January). One of the causes is the still ongoing structural increase of the peak discharge intensity of the rivers crossing the city due to land use change in the upstream parts of the catchments, steep mountainous areas (±3000m +MSL) in the south of Java island.

Application of remote sensing and citizen science in monitoring water resources in the Red River Delta - fieldwork activities Application of remote sensing and citizen science in monitoring water resources in the Red River delta - fieldwork activities The objectives of the fieldwork were to validate the certainties of the results estimated by remote sensing analysis and to maintain the involvement of citizen in a data provider system which is jointly using the two free data sources: 1) remote sensing and 2) citizen science. It can be concluded that continuous measurements of some water parameters in the Red River Delta are important to persistently build a dataset for both research and training. Annual activities continuously organised by HUNRE are building a bigger database and are better providing educational services. Small funding prove that it certainly can provide many supportive activities if it is reasonably used.

Call for presentations: Africa day 2018 (20 October 2018) Climate change is a theme that needs to be addressed urgently. Although its effects are felt worldwide, the African continent appears to carry the heaviest burden when it comes to adapting to climate change. To explore how climate change could be addressed in Africa, the Netherlands Association for African Studies (NVAS) organizes the NVAS Africa day 2018 entitled ‘Responding to climate change in Africa’ in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund.
