Mr. Aries Purwanto graduated on 15 June 2021. Find the link to his thesis here.
He has been working since 2005 as a Development Planner in Karawang Regency, Indonesia. He is currently a full-time Ph.D fellow in Land and Water Development Chair Group, WSE Department, IHE-Delft. He received his bachelor degree (B.Eng) majoring Mining Engineering in 2003 from University of Sriwijaya, Indonesia. Afterwards, he continued his master study in a double-degree programme on Integrated Lowland Development and Management Planning in University of Sriwijaya & UNESCO-IHE, Delft. He graduated in 2013 with the thesis topic on “GIS-based Modeling for Soil Erosion in Lowland Areas”. His expertise is mainly on local development planning, with several research interests on natural resources, land and water, environment, water-energy-food security, nexus approach, GIS-based and spatial analysis, economic base analysis, and system dynamics modeling. He started to undertake PhD research at IHE-Delft in collaboration with Wageningen University with the full support of Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP), Ministry of Finance of Indonesia.
TopicSystem dynamics framework for water, energy and food security nexus in local perspective
His PhD research explores more on the water-energy-food (WEF) security nexus in the local context. The main purpose of this study to grasp the WEF security nexus in the local context and evaluate the implications of planned local scale interventions in WEF sectors by developing a conceptual and quantitative analysis framework together with local stakeholders. To achieve it, five specific objectives have been formulated to; (1) analyse the existing WEF security nexus concepts and frameworks, (2) assess the WEF-related sectors and their behaviour in the local economic development, (3) develop a qualitative causal loop mapping of WEF security nexus by involving local stakeholders via group model building, (4) develop a quantitative system dynamics model of WEF security nexus in local context, and (5) evaluate the local development policies and planning on the WEF-related sectors. The results are expected to assist local government and stakeholders in doing evaluation and planning of WEF security in their region.
