Disaster Management


Indonesia is one of the most disaster prone nations in the world. It is located at the friction points of three continental tectonic plates, and has the largest number of historically active volcanoes in the world. Earthquakes are frequent and there is a high risk of volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, floods, landslides, forest fires, and, in some regions, drought and social unrest.

Before, during and after disasters, IDEP works together with local communities to help increase resilience to disasters. In times of disaster IDEP works with a nationwide network of local partners to get people the assistance they need as quickly as possible. As with all of IDEP's programs, the aim of our Disaster Management work is to, "help people help themselves". We achieve this through community capacity building, demonstrations, and practical hands-on education.

IDEP's mission for its Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM) program is to build local communities' resilience to disasters in a sustainable manner. Since 2002, this capacity building program has assisted local communities to implement a range of effective activities that help to reduce the chance of a disaster happening in their area, cause residents to be more prepared if disaster does happen, and facilitates a quicker and more sustainably recovery.
