Indonesia’s national disaster management agency (Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana, or BNPB) recently deployed an advanced hazard early warning and monitoring system called InAWARE in a bid to enhance its disaster management and response capabilities.

 

The project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. It aims to support the Indonesian government’s goals of reducing disaster risk and increasing disaster resilience, thereby safeguarding the lives of citizens and minimising economic losses during natural disasters.

 

InAWARE is based on the Pacific Disaster Centre’s (PDC) DisasterAWARE platform which consolidates hazard information and alerts from various national and international sources. The system also facilitates information sharing within and between Indonesia’s national and provincial disaster management stakeholder agencies to help government authorities arrive at well-informed decisions during times of natural calamities.

 

PDC was established by the US Government in 1996 and is currently being managed by the University of Hawaii.
