BANDUNG - The West Java Provincial Government gives appreciation to all stakeholders involved in the Harum Citarum program which has been running for two years.
According to the Governor of West Java, Mochamad Ridawn Kamil, the Harum Citarum program which has been running for two years has experienced many significant changes.
"In two years the Citarum Harum Program has made a lot of progress, even with an adequate budget," said the Governor, after opening the Two-Year Workshop on the Acceleration and Pollution Damage Control Acceleration Program at the Mason Pine Hotel, Padalarang, West Bandung Regency, Wednesday (09 / 10).
The Governor stated that he appreciated a number of steps, achievements and contributions from various parties, communities, community organizations, non-governmental organizations including the TNI / Polri who had worked hard to make the Citarum River even better.
"With the much progress that has been made, we hope to change the status of Citarum into a clean river. A heavily polluted status can gradually improve to moderate pollution and at the end we can realistically become mildly polluted," he said.
The Governor said, to deal with the Citarum river problem can be done with two approaches, namely technocratic and populist approaches, which are part of the management of the Citarum River Basin Pollution and Damage Control Acceleration program.
"With a sustainable and technocratic (measurable scientific) and populist (short-term) approach, hopefully we can present a better Citarum," he concluded. (Parno)
