Welcome to Conference
Indonesia's position at the 3 tectonic plates meeting i.e. the Indo-Australian Plate, the Eurasian Plate, and the Pacific Plate has resulted to have high volatility and seismic activity, as well as other potential disasters such as tsunamis, landslides, floods, and others. Disasters may happen at any time and are difficult to predict when and where they will occur. By the end of 2017, Indonesia has been hit by several disasters. November 27, 2017, PVMBG raises the status of Gunung Agung, Bali to be "watch out". BNPB recorded the number of refugees 66,716 people and spread over 225 points of evacuation posts. November 28, 2017, Tropical cyclone Cempaka hit + 32 km south-southeast of Pacitan, East Java, causing floods, landslides, and 11 people died. December 3, 2017, The floods hit district of Baleendah and Dayaeuh Kolot Bandung, 150 families (484 souls) were evacuated.
On December 15, 2017, Indonesia was hit by an earthquake of 6.9 SR with an epicenter 11 km southwest of Tasikmalaya regency, West Java, causing the house collapsed in the District of Cikalong and Tibalong. Tsunami early warning was enabled. On December 16, 2017, an earthquake having magnitude of 6,9 with epicenter near the coast hit 6 km southeast of Bantarkalong City, Tasikmalaya regency at a depth of 120 km. The earthquake caused 43 houses damaged/collapsed, 65 houses were damaged, 10 houses were slightly damaged, 2 people died and 7 people were injured. On December 18, 2017, a landslide occurred at the location of sand mining in the village of Kaliurang, District Srumbung, Magelang regency, Central Java Province. Landslide which caused 8 people died and 8 people injured.
In response to some of the above disaster events, disaster management is required. Disaster management is an important part of implementing sustainable development. Disaster management needs to focus on prevention, mitigation, preparedness and awareness activities to minimize or mitigate the impact of disasters. Disaster management must involve all parties, including government, private and public. In connection with this, it is important for us who live in disaster prone areas have policies, strategies or programs to deal with disasters known as "disaster management". Understanding disaster management will be very positive if it is realized by all parties including government, private, and public to suppress the loss of property, casualties, and infrastructure damage. Therefore, some efforts are required to build "disaster management" that is able to deal with the way of living side by side with the disaster-prone natural conditions. With this background, the Department of Geography Education, Faculty of Social Sciences, UNY intends to hold an International Conference on the following theme: "International Conference on Hazard Mitigation in Geographic and Education Perspectives"
This is a first call for papers on the following themes:
- Hazard Management System
- Community-Based Hazard Mitigation
- Hazard and Sustainable Development
- Disaster Risk Reduction
- Social Hazard Management
- Natural Hazard Management
- Disaster Management and Disability
- Hazard Mitigation
- Role of Women in Disaster Risk Reduction
- Disaster Management for Early Childhood Education and Older People
- Geographic Information System (GIS) for Disaster Management
