The North Jakarta administration invites local residents to participate in flood mitigation in its region by maintaining cleanliness, not littering and helping clean water channels.

We must be able to mobilize and educate the community to be involved in flood mitigation

"We must be able to mobilize and educate the community to be involved in flood mitigation," expressed North Jakarta Mayor, Sigit Wijatmoko, Friday (9/25).

He admitted that flood mitigation in a pandemic situation like this was a challenge. Therefore residents who wanted to be involved in handling floods had to take a rapid test first to contain transmission of COVID-19.

"We have to generate all the potential that exists. Not only doing what was instructed, but all related, working together and coordinating," he stated.
