CABARET members were fortunate to visit two important institutions responsible for tackling disaster risk reduction in Indonesia. The National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) and Indonesia agency for meteorology, climatology and geophysics (BMKG). The team were given a demonstration of Indonesia’s climate early warning system and tsunami service provider role, which benefits 28 Indian Ocean countries and their national disaster management systems. Participants received a 24/7 real life data simulation experience at the early warning operating system located in BNPB. BNPB is Indonesia’s leading government institution in coordinating the planning and implementation of disaster management activities in an integrated manner, and is responsible for implementing disaster management and emergency management from before, during, and after an event, including disaster prevention, preparedness, emergency handling, and recovery. It is involved in coordinating implementation of disaster management activities in a planned, integrated, and comprehensive manner. BNPB also works to raise awareness about the need to reduce disaster risk at the national level, among local government at the provincial and district / city level, and among civil society, the private sector, and international institutions and the community at the grassroots level.
