Consultant of UNDP-UN HABITAT. I was assigned by the United Nations Development Program and UNHABITAT Aceh, Indonesia as a consultant on Solid Waste Management. My tasks included review the documents and provide relevant feedbacks to UNDP/UN-HABITAT Team on sustainable solid waste management concepts and practices. I also translated scientific documents written in Bahasa Indonesia into English and vice versa. The translated documents were published by the UNDP and UN Habitat as official policy documents of the United Nations.

Aug 2010- August 2011:
Consultant on Urban Planning and Environmental Management. I conducted research and provided consultancy for some local government institutions under the Local Provincial Government of West Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Two concepts notes on Sustainable Development and Local Governance were submitted.

Jun 2009-Aug 2010:
Senior Program Specialist at the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)-Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Partnership, Southeast Asia Urban Environmental Management Applications (SEA-UEMA) Project: A project dealt with the improvement of urban environment in Southeast Asian cities. As a Program Specialist, I contributed to the successful completion of seventy eight projects/activities in eight Southeast Asian countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam) on Joint Action Research, Pilot Projects, Demonstration Projects, Policy Advocacies and Flagship Projects pertaining to sustainable solid waste management, urban air quality management and urban water supply and sanitation management. I developed two Annual Work Plans (2009 and 2010). I prepared one Progress Report on Results (2009), and one Final Report of the Project (end-of-project Report, 2010). My team and I developed a computer-based Project Monitoring and Information System. In addition to that, I conducted a research on project beneficiaries’ feedbacks on project activities in Southeast Asia countries. I did also a research on tracing UEM graduates 2003-2009 as assigned by CIDA and prepared the Tracing Study Report. This tracing study aimed at understanding the professional advancement and career of the urban environmental management alumni after graduation which provided also feedback to both AIT and CIDA as the main sponsor of the Project. I also carried out various types of works ranging from project reporting to administrative and clerical works in this project (multi-tasking assignment).

Head of Section of Project Monitoring and Evaluation (with 20 subordinate Staffs) in the Department of Water Resources Development, Ministry of Public Works, Jakarta, Indonesia: On average in a year, my team and I monitored 440 water resources infrastructure projects all over Indonesia, with a total budget of about IDR 2 trillion (USD 300 million). We also undertook project evaluation every year and submitted the report to the Director General of Water Resources Development to assist him in making suitable decision, as part of Decision Support System. A computer-based and web-based monitoring system was established. My team and I also developed a web-based water resources data warehouse. This warehouse enabled to supply information for reporting and decision making to the top management in the Department and Ministry.

Jan 1999- Jan 2001:
Head of Section of Flood Control of Irian Jaya Province cum Principal Civil Engineer for disaster reduction due to flooding problems in Irian Jaya Province (with 10 subordinate Staffs) in the Department of Water Resources Development, Ministry of Human Settlements and Regional Infrastructure, Jakarta, Indonesia. My main task was mitigating the impacts of flood disasters in rural and urban areas e.g. loss of life and property by constructing river dikes, river embankment, constructed groins, and other riparian structures. I, with my subordinate staffs, planned and supervised the implementation of 12 flood control infrastructure projects with total budget of IDR 25 billion in 1999, 15 flood control projects with IDR 30 billion (USD 3 million) in 2000, and 14 flood control projects with the budget of IDR 32 billion. All the projects were successfully completed and well function up until these days.

Jan 1998- Jan 1999:
Head of Section of Water Supply and Sanitation in West and Central Kalimantan Provinces (with 12 subordinates) in the Department of Rural Development, Ministry of Human Settlement and Regional Development, Indonesia: I and my team planned and supervised the implementation of 6 rural water supply and sanitation infrastructure projects with total budget of IDR 5.6 billion in 1998, and 8 urban and rural water supply projects with total budget of IDR 6 billion in 1999. The Project Managers, under my coordination and supervision, implemented the project. The projects were successfully completed as per planned and served the rural communities up until these days.

Jan 1996- Jan 1998:
Head of Section of Water Management (with 15 subordinate staffs) in the Department of Water Resources Development, Ministry of Public Works, Jakarta, Indonesia: I with my team planned and implemented the concept of river basin based water resources management with pilot projects in Cimanuk-Cisanggarung, Ciujung-Ciliman, Progo-Opak-Oyo river basins. The project was later expanded to Jeneberang, Way Seputih-Way Sekampung, Cimanuk and Citarum river basins. Disaster management was part of the system since most of the above rivers created natural disasters from their seasonal flooding. The outcome results of this project were the establishment of numerous Basin-wide water resources management institutions all over Indonesia. Integrated water resources management within a river basin boundary minimizes the possibility of water use conflicts, and manages this precious resource efficiently. Mitigate the impacts of flood disasters by constructing necessary structures.
