In the province of Yogyakarta in Java, the district of Gunung Kidul is considered to be one of the poorest areas in Indonesia. Here, water shortages greatly affect the population, especially during the dry season, which lasts from April to October. Due to the karstic underground, rainfall rapidly seeps into the ground without sufficient surface storage. Because of the problems outlined above, an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) was established in the district of Gunung Kidul.
