Title: Empowering Local Community in Indonesia through Maron Watershed Management
Funded by SGP in August 2000, the Seloliman-Kali Maron project to upgrade the capacity of a micro-hydro-facility to enhance the development of the local community was implemented by the Consortium Seloliman in East Java, Indonesia. Project activities enhanced the capacity of an existing micro-hydro-plant that had been installed with the assistance of the German development agency GTZ in collaboration with a local center for environmental learning, known as PPLH Seloliman. Now the plant has a 23 KW capacity, of which PPLH Seloliman and the community use 10KW. The additional power is used to run a cotton machine and a paper crusher.
