(2/1/2010)

Concerned about ongoing beach erosion, the General Manager of the Melia Bali, Jim Boyles, met with the Bupati of the Badung Regency, AA Gde Agung, SH on Thursday, January 7, 2010, to urgently consult on the growing erosion problems threatening Nusa Dua.

Underlining his concern, Boyles explained: "We are ready to join efforts to prevent further erosion. We are now waiting for firmness and definite steps from the regional government of Badung and the provincial government of Bali." He went on to explain that although the hotel initiated the replacement of lost sand through sandbagging and other means, these measures have proved largely ineffective. The improvements lasted only a few months. Given that the peak of the foreshore erosion takes place during the months of December through April, it is necessary to act immediately to save what is left of the popular beachfront.

The hotel delegation was received by the Regency’s administration and environment team consisting of Assistant II, I Wayan Suambara, SH;, Kadiparda Badung, Drs. I Made Subawa, MM; Head of Bina Marga, Ir. IB Soerya; Head of Cipta Karya, Dewa Made Apramana; Kadisnakanlut, I Made Badra; and dr. I Gede Putra Suteja of regional office of Environment Effect Control. The Regent discussed the erosion of the beach, which he believes is the result of global warming. Changing weather and water current patterns are eating away at the once-pristine beach side located on Bali's southernmost shore and some other valuable beach front in the Badung regency.

Beach erosion in Badung affects 82 km of shoreline, of which 40 km has been reclaimed at Kutuh, Tuban, Kuta, Seminyak and Seseh. The reclamation effort also includes a Coral Reef Restoration Project.

Agung stated that the government will immediately conduct a review of the situation with the help of those concerned, and definite steps will be taken by the regional government of Badung and the provincial government of Bali. He also suggested that the resort perform the traditional Balinese ceremony ‘Pekelem’ to promote the value of Balinese culture in addressing this environmental issue.
