International Conference Highlights Lessons in Disaster Recovery from the MDF and JRF

Indonesia’s post-disaster reconstruction experience was the focus of an international conference held in Jakarta on November 12, 2012, entitled Lessons from Indonesia’s Experiences in Disaster Reconstruction and Preparedness. Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono attended the conference. .

The conference drew on the experiences of both the MDF and the Java Reconstruction Fund (JRF) as they were bringing their successful reconstruction operations in Aceh, Nias, and Java to a close on December 31, 2012. These experiences helped reshape Indonesia’s approach to disaster response and preparedness. Indonesia’s disaster reconstruction experience will ensure that a legacy of resilience and preparedness will endure into the future.

The conference attracted over 500 participants including dignitaries from disaster-prone countries such as Japan, Pakistan, and Haiti. It covered many aspects of post-disaster reconstruction and preparedness, including the community-led approach to housing reconstruction, post-disaster livelihoods recovery, gender and capacity development, mainstreaming disaster risk reduction, and knowledge sharing.

The full conference proceedings, including the speeches delivered by President Yudhoyono and other dignitaries can be downloaded here.
