Bali is divided into four regionsthat is North Bali, West Bali, South Bali, and East Bali. In the middle of the island is a mountain area with dense forests, although in some places has been a settlement. In general, Bali hot climates, evenly distributed throughout the island region. Only in the mountain region the temperature is very cold. Bali clearance can also rains every year on a regular basis. Bali is an island so lush.
North Bali is region of Buleleng and Karangasem. West Bali is Jembrana, and some of Tabanan. South Bali is some part of Tabanan, Denpasar, Badung, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Sanur, Nusa Dua, Jimbaran. East Bali is Klungkung, and some part of Gianyar.
But unlike in South Bali area which has many tourist attractions and develop into the region's tourism industry, North Bali is located in the northern mountains. When compared with other areas of Bali, North Bali climate is very hot. Even in some places very arid condition with no trees, only grass that is capable of living. Humidity is low, and the wind does not always relieve oneself in this region. It happened because of the wind that moves from south to north is blocked by mountains.
Rainfall in North Bali is very low. If in South Bali, rain occurs for months during the rainy season, in the northern rain only occurred a few days. This resulted in the northern rivers have no water. Very dry and not good to stay. Low rain caused by a cloud of water vapor from the south to the north is blocked by the mountains in the center of Bali. So in the mountains region of Bali most frequently occurring rain.
Water is in short supply. Therefore, many people in North Bali rely on water supplied by the local government brought by using tank cars, and even then not routinely given, just a few weeks. If they are short of water, recording will search for water up to the side of the mountain.
Poverty is the impact of drought in North Bali. Many residents in North Bali including in poor families. They can not cultivate agricultural land because there is no water. Only during the rainy season they farm. After that, they will wait until it rains again. If it did not rain for a year, they will become beggars in the city.
This condition has never been a serious concern by the provincial government of Bali. The government never did serious research and review to improve the situation in North Bali. Many activists have criticized the government to pay attention to this condition, but the government seemed to turn a blind eye and let the drought continues in North Bali.
