This report is a product of the Committee on USGS Water Resources
Research, which provides consensus advice to the Water Resources Division
(WRD) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) on scientific, research, and
programmatic issues. The committee is one of the groups that works under the
auspices of the Water Science and Technology Board (WSTB) of the National
Research Council. The committee considers a variety of topics that are
important scientifically and programmatically to the USGS and the nation and

The USG’s long history and successful programming in Indonesia provides examples of the GHI principles in action. Working under the guidance of national strategies and priorities and in partnership with government and private sector, investing in innovation, putting the interests of women and girls at the center of programming and increasing impact through strategic coordination have all been core approaches used by the USG in Indonesia and will continue to guide its work.
The USG has had a long and successful history of work in the health sector in Indonesia. While USAID accounts for 94% of the USG budget in health for Indonesia, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), US Department of State Biosecurity Engagement Program (BEP), US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Office of Defense Cooperation (DOD) also play significant roles, particularly in AI, other emerging pandemic threats (EPT) and HIV/AIDS in the case of DOD.
Comprehensive and authoritative baseline geospatial data content is crucial
to the nation and to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). To maintain its prominence,
realize its potential, and fulfill its mission to develop and distribute these
national data assets in a fast-moving information technology environment,
USGS needs a coordinated geographic information science (GIScience) research
presence that provides the scientific underpinning for these operations and exerts
leadership in research that is critical to serving USGS’s unique role.
