The Indonesian nation, now and in the future, is destined to be ready to face multi-sectoral, multi-dimensional disasters with high complexity. Then disaster mitigation must be the focus of our mutual attention. Disaster mitigation is carried out through iHiar to improve and reduce disaster risk. Not only during emergencies but also pre-disaster and post-disaster.
This is coupled with the condition that Indonesia is in a ring of fire, then disasters in Indonesia are a necessity. Every year, an average disaster of almost 2,500 disasters occur every year. Moreover, the disaster awareness culture and the level of community and local government preparedness are still low. Though millions of Indonesians live in disaster-prone areas with mitigation capabilities that are still minimal. jo
