AFMAM 2020 – TEAM ACTION, INDONESIA (ASEAN Foundation Model ASEAN Meeting)

Pls spare time to view and your thumb up to spark our spirit in our promotional video bit.ly/Action-Indonesia.

Greetings from Indonesia.

We wish you all good health in the middle of this pandemic.

Meet Team Action from Indonesia!

COVID19 has turned our mind upside down. Obviously we are not ready for the next pandemic (https://www.gatesnotes.com/Health/We-…). On the other hand, water-related diseases are still the number one silent killer in developing countries. Diarrhea for an example, this widely known disease still causing 4% of all deaths worldwide. It kills around 2.2 million people globally per year, mostly children in developing countries (https://www.who.int/water_sanitation_…).

In the high demand for safe water access to prevent water-related diseases, people living in the riverbank of major rivers, unfortunately have very limited access to safe water due to river pollution, exposing them to higher risk of infection. Putting attention closely to major rivers in Southeast Asia including Citarum, Chao Phraya, Irrawaddy, Marilao, Kinabatangan, and Mekong River — which are heavily polluted mostly by domestic waste and industrial discharge — our team offers OneRiver a solution to increase awareness, concerns, and actions involving all parties for a thorough result.

OneRiver is a platform providing direct solution by going to the society with citizen data-collecting support, and latest river update information. In the platform we also provide education and empowerment to educate people who lived in riverbank also to create a more eco-friendly and healthy community based on a reusable dataset. OneRiver is accessible for all to collaborate in the effort to reduce water pollution and prepare sustainable environment for achieving Global Goals 2030. Therefore, action is our dedication, and so as our team name.

About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia (osf.io/preprints/inarxiv) and serving as ORCID and OSF (osf.io) ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog: dasaptaerwin.net, derwinirawan.wordpress.com. (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-1526-0863)
