In Southeast Sulawesi, APIK focuses its activity in Kendari city and South Konawe district which most of the area are part of Wanggu watershed, which is also a priority area for the provincial government. Working in both areas provides an opportunity for APIK to collaborate with the local governments on climate change adaptation issue in coastal and highland area.
Southeast Sulawesi is especially vulnerable to hydrometeorological disasters, with floods and landslides as the most frequent and hazardous disasters. This condition is exacerbated by poor management such as deforestation of forests for agriculture and mining which increases the risk of flooding and landslides during heavy rains.
