Business & Community Resilience Co-Creation & Conference

23 Oct 2019, 1.00 PM


Indonesia is in one of the world's most natural disaster-prone areas and is at risk to multiple hazards, including flooding, earthquakes, landslides, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, and cyclones. The Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), is increasingly engaging with the private sector (law 24/2007 on business involvement in disaster management and Head of BNPB Reg.12/2014).

This event aims at encouraging cooperation between national and international companies, BNPB and local Government, UN Agencies and national & international non-government organizations present in Indonesia, as we foresee a large potential for public-private partnerships in the disaster risk management area.

The event also aims at exploring how companies can directly support the resilience of communities in disaster-prone areas where they operate. Protecting the main business asset -the workforce- employees, families, and surrounding communities from disasters is a "shared value" investment for business continuity and to advance corporate social responsibility.

Business participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Network with national and international disaster management stakeholders and decision-makers.
  • Promote technical solutions for disaster management.
  • Position as a Resilience Champion and promote direct engagement in community resilience.
