A young man planting euca1yptus trees to fight erosion in the Upper Solo River basin. - - Integrated Watershed Development of the Solo River Basin in Java. Erosion is one of the principa1 prob1ems impeding the development of agriculture in Central and East Java. Without proper management of watersheds, it will be impossible to reduce flood damage or rehabilitate irrigation schemes, a situation which poses a threat to new dams and reservoirs. In order to provide training and experience in erosion control measures which will eventually be applied throughout Indonesia, the Government is being assisted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) as executing agency, in drawing up a plan for the integrated watershed development of the Solo River Basin in Java. This project calls for reforestation, terracing, water disposal, soil studies and land use classification. The UN/FAO Wor1d Food Programme is supplying food rations as an incentive to workers engaged on the various aspects of this project.
