Factsheet: Guidance on developing infrastructure adaptation scenarios for Bogor’s water sensitive transition

For Greater Bogor to leapfrog towards a WSC, the primary challenge is overcoming the business-as-usual mindset to water management, and understanding the compounding effects of population growth and climate change stresses on business-as-usual practices.

This factsheet explains the role of infrastructure scenario modelling in the planning process and how decisions on city development infrastructure investment can be supported by a focus on quality data and modeling. Used effectively, modelling approaches can drive a deeper understanding of the connection between the water system, land use, urban design and technology. Furthermore, our research has found that involving stakeholders early on in the modelling process can improve the quality of options developed, increase water literacy and significantly influence the success of water resource management projects.
