2022 GPDRR to Push the World to Build Disaster Resilience: BNPB

Antara • 19 April 2022 19:00
Jakarta: Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR), to be held on May 23, 2022, in Bali, will become an opportunity for Indonesia to encourage the international world to build collective disaster resiliency, National Disaster Mitigation Agency's (BNPB's) official stated.
On account of the fact that GPDRR will be attended by delegations from 193 nations, it is believed that the discussion will produce a concept for international disaster risk reduction efforts.
"This event became important because we are a country with quite high risk," BNPB's System and Strategy Deputy, Raditya Jati, noted through a statement on Monday.

"The current strategic value is how the world can learn from Indonesia," he added.
Indonesia, as the host of the seventh GPDRR, will play an important role, as it will mirror the trust of the international community, he affirmed.
This is especially because Indonesia is positioned as the center of knowledge and advancing soft diplomacy in the humanitarian and general affairs department of disaster mitigation.
"The most important turning point is how to build this resilience in the future for a stronger generation," Jati remarked.
Resiliency can be realized through the collaboration of all sectors, such as ministries or institutions, academicians, the media, businesses, and non-governmental organizations, he noted.
To this end, the president had also issued Presidential Regulation (Pepres) No. 87 of 2020 on the 2020-2044 Disaster Mitigation Master Plan (RIPB).
The RIPB contains the disaster mitigation vision, mission, goal, policy, strategy, and road map.
The RIPB refers to the first National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) period that ends in 2025 and the second RPJPN during the 2025-2045 period.
"This is our opportunity to showcase resiliency. Indonesia had shown its political commitment set by the president with Pepres No. 87 of 2020," he stressed.
According to Jati, a disaster handling master plan, which lasts for 25 years, does not exist in other nations. With this, the world can take a cue from Indonesia on how to build national resilience toward 2045.
