SDG 14: LIFE BELOW WATER

“The two SDGs that look at the broader ecosystem divide it into Life Below Water, and Life on Land. The oceans, and the rivers and watersheds that link to them, are the largest part of our ecosystem. 40% of the world’s population lives within 100km of the coast, and we all rely – directly or indirectly – on the sea.”
(THE Impact Rankings)

Supporting aquatic ecosystems through education

Fresh-water ecosystem is important for the human life. The fresh-water ecosystem can include lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. To maintain the fresh-water ecosystem, ITS offers educational programs on fresh-water ecosystems (water irrigation practices, water management/conservation) for local or national communities.

Plastic pollution is threatening not only the terrestrial ecosystem, but also the marine ecosystem worldwide. ITS as a higher education awares of the importance of plastic waste reduction to protect the environment. The initiatives to reduce the plastic waste on campus are supported by the Circular Letter of ITS Rector No. T-95007-IT2-TU.00.08-2019 about ITS’ Initiatives towards Sustainable and Environmental Friendly Campus, specifically item A no. 6-8 (to encourage waste management on campus through reduce, reuse, and recycle). ITS also issuses the Circular Letter concerning the use of disposable drinking water/bottled water and plastic bags at ITS Campus. To reduce the use of bottled water, ITS promotes the initiative to bring own water bottle. In every meeting, ITS does not provide plastic bottled water, instead, ITS prepares the water dispenser and glasses.

Maintaining a local ecosystem

Aquatic ecosystems have essential environmental functions. For example, they can purify water, recharge ground water and provide habitats for wildlife. Thus, it is required to protect the aquatic ecosystems. ITS has a plan to minimise physical, chemical and biological alterations of related aquatic ecosystems. For example, ITS student creates innovation to reduce the water pollution from irrigation. Another innovation is related to the use of Internet-of-Things (IoT) to overcome the waste from river.

Watershed is important because the surface water features and stormwater runoff within a watershed ultimately drain to other bodies of water. It is crucial to consider these downstream impacts when developing and implementing water quality protection and related actions. ITS Surabaya collaborates with local, regional and national government to implement the watershed management strategy. One of the examples is the Rejoso watershed management.
