Abstract

The relationship between land use and water quality status is complex and likely to be site-specific, and more work is needed for it to be clearly quantified. Theref National Cheng Kung University, No 1 University Road, Tainan 701ore, the main objective of this paper was thus to identify and investigate status of waterbodies (lakes and rivers) by using appropriate predictive index assessment tool coupled with the offered Adaptive Co-Management (ACM) methodology towards sustainability of water quality and ecology in Indonesia. We then present a comprehensive assessment as baseline information to describe the existing condition of waterbody status in study area. The results indicated that the basic requirements of predictive index assessment tool, expressed as indicator: criteria and attributes, are use-specific or targeted to the protection of the watershed and waterbodies uses among a number of land use policies. In some situations, even stricter requirements and policies are necessary to achieve sustainability of water quality and ecology in Indonesia.
