Where do we stand

Various disasters, both natural disasters and disasters caused by human actions, continue to occur in Indonesia, causing loss of community and government assets which increasingly burdens development. In dealing with geological disasters, the source of the threat in the form of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis cannot be prevented. Meanwhile, some of the people of this country still live in disaster-prone areas that could be in danger at any time.
