(4/27/2012) warns that the island of Bali is predicted to experiences a waters crisis by 2015. The dire warning comes form the Bali executive for the Friends of the Earth (Walhi) who underlines the situation ahead, saying that by 2020 Bali will also endure a “clean water” crisis.

The internal-deputy of Walhi for Bali, Suriadi Darmoko, said: “Bali’s ecological crisis has reached a critical limit. The symptoms of an ecological crisis are now in evidence. Among the most obvious and most basic signs is the water crisis.”

Darmoko revealed that research conducted by the Ministry of the Environment in 1997 predicted a water crisis for Bali in 2013 via a water deficit of 27 billion liters. Adding, “Meanwhile the Bali Environmental Agency (BLH) has stated that Bali will experience a clean water crisis by 2020.”

Walhi is offering a number of possible solutions to overcome the island’s water crisis. First, the provincial administration of Bali must be consistent in applying the 2009 Zoning law (RTRW), which has numerous safeguards for the island’s ecology. Second, Bali must introduce a consistent moratorium on development in the tourism industry.

Darmoko is convinced that these steps must be taken in order that the government can achieve a long-term and comprehensive solution. He said the people must also be given a participatory role in managing the environment in order to develop a sustainable and comprehensive tourism development model for Bali.
