Objective 1: Develop a knowledge base and repository on the relation between ICTs and climate change While new technologies and ICT applications can contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions, the rapid uptake in ICT devices, notably in developed countries, increases energy consumption and the need to manage the environmentally sound disposal of e-waste. ITU is engaged in efforts to demonstrate that ICTs are a clean technology for sustainable development and can be a key part of the solution to climate change. The adoption of clean technologies and their safe disposal can assist developing and developed countries alike in their economic and social development. (...) ITU should also assist its membership in combating climate change, in particular through environmental monitoring, through adoption of energy-efficient devices and networks, dematerialization and disposal standards, through carbon abatement (for example, by using videoconferencing to reduce business travel) and by helping countries to adapt to climate change (for instance by using ICTs for managing natural resources, environmental protection, and for monitoring natural and man-made disasters through emergency telecommunications).

Around Feby lurks another threat just as harmful—namely the unsafe disposal of untreated faecal waste. According to a recent World Bank study, approximately 95 percent of faecal waste in Indonesia is untreated and not disposed into proper treatment plants. Some of the emptied sludge is often unsafely disposed of on land and ends up in drains, rivers and agricultural fields, increasing contamination and its health risks. Poor citizen understanding of how to build their own toilets and manage waste disposal contributes to the problem. Suryatul is no exception.
