Probably the best known volcano in Indonesia, or in the whole world for that matter, is Mount Krakatau.
It erupted violently in 1883. What caused it to erupt? Or, more generally, what causes volcanoes to erupt? In
order to know the answer, it is necessary for us to
know what a volcano is. In Indonesian we call it "gunung berapi", or "gunung api" for short, the question is, where do the heat and fire come from? According to geologists, deep beneath the ground there are chambers, which contain molten rock. Because of high pressure, the molten rock is forced up the passage that connects the chamber and the opening in the crust of the earth. This molten rock flows out of the opening as lava (magma), and along with it is emitted ashes and gases. A volcano, then, is a mountain with an opening at the top, from which flows lava, hot ashes and gases Eventually the lava cools off and becomes solid rock. Sometimes the solid rock blocks the opening and eruption stop. However, if high pressure builds up in the chamber, the blockage may reopen and the volcano erupts once more.
Very often a volcanic explosion, like the 1883's explosion of Mount Krakatau, causes a great deal of human suffering. That is why people often associate
volcanoes with disasters. That is not wholly correct, of
course, since there are also some good things. Firstly, volcanoes, like mountain in generals, cause clouds the rise and then cool off to form rain. Secondly, the
materials thrown up by volcanoes contain minerals needed by plants, after many years the volcanic materials make the soil fertile.

Water is an essential component of all living matter. The body itself consists of more than 70% water. Water is necessary for weathering processes that convert rock to soil and for the transport of soil nutrients to plant. In the form of vapour, it provides protection for us against the harmful radiations from outer space and the chilling temperatures at night. Water is so much a part of our daily lives that we take all this for granted, we drink it, wash with it, use it to dispose of our waste products and for countless other domestic purposes.
The widest use of water in some countries is for irrigation. The farmers grow rice extensively to satisfy the need for this staple food. With the programmer's priority being to increase rice production, the heavy use of water for agriculture will continue in the future.
Water is also used to produce electric power. Many hydroelectric power plants provide electricity for cities, towns and villages.
Industry depends on water. The manufacture of
foodstuffs, textiles, man-made dams now attract more and more people for fishing, boating and other recreations.
Water sources can be classified as either surface water or ground water. Surface water originates from two main sources rivers and rainfall, which act as the sources of water in urban areas. Rainwater failing on land areas partly infiltrates the earth's surface and is partly intercepted by plants, while some evaporates. Water collected in lakes, swamps, streams and rivers can be used to provide an urban water supply.

Indonesia, having the world's fifth largest populations and endowed with extensive and varied natural resources, has the potential to become a great and prosperous power, But for the time being she is facing four main problems; how to cope with her population's growth, how to produce enough food, how to provide people with jobs and how to organize enough exports so that the country can pay her way in the world. Indonesia's most valuable resource is her people. But for Indonesia, as with other developing countries, the possession of this particular kind of resource can prove to be a serve impediment to economic development.
The Government is endeavoring to cope with the population problem in two ways: on the one hand by encouraging people to move, either spontaneously or under the official transmigration programme from densely-populated Java, Madura and Bali to the wider open spaces of the outer islands of Sumatera, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Irian Jaya, and on other hand by fostering family planning. Transmigration is more than a response to population growth; it also carries profound implications for balanced national development and for national security.
In its response to the population growth however, Indonesia must continue to rely upon family planning
objectives, the establishment of happy and prosperous
small families and the reduction of the population growth to 1% by 1990. The country's family planning can indeed offer valuable lessons for other parts of the world-in terms not only of results achieved but also of the democratic way in which they have been achieved. Indonesia's family planning programme has become one of the most remarkable of all attempts to institute birth control on a mass scale.
