Call for application: International workshop
Natural disasters consist of human and natural components that are interconnected. While progress has been made to mitigate and adapt to natural hazards, much of the existing research lacks interdisciplinary approaches that equally consider both natural and social processes. More importantly, this lack of integration between approaches remains a major challenge in developing disaster risk management plans for communities. The proposed early career researcher workshop on Modelling risk and resilience in human and natural systems aims to:

‘We have to improve our resistance to climate change’ Climate vulnerability and resilience in Indonesia.
During an interview after his lecture, Dr. Sugardiman shared his views regarding climate vulnerability and resilience in the context of a developing country: “In Indonesia, the most vulnerable sectors to climate change are the food and health sectors. Massive disruptions in these two important areas will threaten national security. Therefore, it is extremely important to improve our resilience to climate change. Furthermore, considering the physical and social complexity of the Indonesian archipelago, resilience engineering should consider site-specific characteristics, and therefore we should invest time in participatory planning and preparation, before executing a program.”
