New DRR Commitment and Initiatives in Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Development.

  1. It was evident that there are significant gaps of knowledge and capacity in DRR between the national and local levels, thus UGM strongly commits to further support the capacity development program for both government and community at the local levels in Indonesia, through the establishment of National Geosciences Centre and the local Government Network.

  2. As the Main Facilitating Institution in Interdisciplinary Research on disaster mitigation under ASEAN University Network, and also as one UN Regional Centre of Expertise in the Education for Sustainable Development, UGM commits to support the improvement of community resilience program in disaster prone regions in Indonesia and ASEAN, through the interdisciplinary research program, with special emphasize on public education and community empowerment, development of community-based and low-cost indigenous technology for disaster mitigation and early warning system.

  3. All above those bring to UGM commitment to intensify the mission in research-based education with respect to Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Development.
