This paper will discuss the water availability and water demands in the Citanduy River Basin located in West and Central Java, Indonesia. A program of development of water and other natural resources in the Citanduy River Basin has been underway since 1938. The basin has a total area of 4,460 square kilometers, comprises six major subbasins and 24 irrigation projects in two provinces and seven administrative districts. With the establishment of the Citanduy River Basin Project in 1969, a systematic and extensive review of the basin's water resources was undertaken. The major emphasis was to provide flood protection, to extend and rehabilitate existing irrigation systems, to construct new irrigation facilities and to improve the social well-being of the farmer through water resources development.
