Building LGU Workshop and town watching.at Sinabung, Kabupaten Karo, Provinsi Sumatera Utara, Indonesia.

The Southeast Asian region has one of the highest level of disaster risk of natural and man-made disasters in the world because all the three values determining risk-hazard, vulnerability, and exposure are very high.

Thus, MERCY Malaysia has taken the initiative to educate the local communities in Kabupaten Karo who live within 10 km radius of the Sinabung volcano; on how to better equip themselves to prepare for the eruption.

The activities prepared for the program consist of :
1. Capacity Building workshop aiming to increase local awareness on disaster risk reduction

2. Town Watching to identify local vulnerabilities and capacities in order to strengthen and improve the areas that are most exposed to disasters.
