On 8 November 2023 I gave an update about Water, Culture, and Heritage of Indonesia in the Amsterdam International Water Week. This is a continuation of my involvement in the effort to promote the subject for several years already. In 2020 I joined a conference in Tokyo and in March 2023 I joined another conference in New York.  This time I told about the use of the Historic Urban Landscape method for water-based cities of Indonesia, for example Banjarmasin in South of Kalimantan. Second, I updated about an effort to organize a side event during the 2024 World Water Forum in Bali. The side event will focus on water and local wisdom for livelihood.
