Aceh earthquake and tsunami, on December 26, 2004, was the biggest disaster - in its scale and impact - in this century. After the incident, it seemed like various other disasters took place all over the world. The high level of vulnerability requires us to become a resilient nation against disasters. Every country needs to mobilize its resources in anticipating future events, reducing casualties and potential losses, and effectively restoring post-disaster conditions for the sustainability of national development. One crucial resource is the capacity of disaster science and technology.
Utilizing the capacity of science and technology in disaster risk reduction is also a mandate of the global framework of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDR) 2015-2030 and Law 24/2007 on Disaster Management. The role of science and technology needs ranging from understanding the dynamics of the threat, victim reduction, capacity building, to the formulation of policy. In this context, the role of universities becomes very central. Moreover, in disaster-prone areas, the university is the spearhead of the development and application of science and technology while at the same time giving birth to capable human resources to deal with various potential threats....

Due to the fact that the process of urbanization is going to intensify, the cities will have to face challenges of sustainable development at different levels: environmental, social and economic, especially in less developed countries where the urbanization level is much greater. It is essential to introduce integrative policy forms for a better quality of life of both urban and rural populations, and for a greater social inclusion....

Become a professional disaster risk management specialist
The Master of Disaster Management provides humanitarian professionals with solid interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that meet the needs of modern emergency management and disaster response.
Experience from recent major disasters, changes in the humanitarian field, the changing nature of a conflict, and climate change impact all have made it clear that a holistic approach to disasters and crisis management is needed to substantially reduce losses and deal with new challenges the current system seems ill-equipped to respond to.
A coherent and holistic approach to disaster risk management is not without challenges. The decision has to be based on a politically, economically, socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable foundation and rooted in sound development policies. Risk reduction needs to underpin and guide decisions in Preparedness, Response and Recovery planning, and programmes. Professionals with an adequate knowledge base and the right skills are invaluable if these challenges are to be met....
