This past December, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, DURP Professor Karl Kim delivered a keynote address on the importance of research in understanding and mitigating the effects of disasters. Click on the image above to read a blog post by Professor Kim on the topic. Please feel free to look at other blog posts, as they highlight the growing collaboration between DURP and community organizations and universities in Indonesia.
From the “About” section: “This blog is about disasters and the role of higher education in risk reduction and resilience.” In these posts, we – from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) – share our experiences, research, and growing partnerships on disasters in the US and Indonesia. Both Hawaii and Indonesia have unique similarities, challenges, and vulnerabilities to disaster, which we explore across geographies, sectors, and topics.” Check out the blog here.
