A national seminar discussing the impact of the recent Seroja Cyclone in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), will be held on May 17th, 2021. This seminar provides a forum for researchers, policymakers, activists, and civil society organizations to gain a deeper, evidence-based understanding of the patterns of damage caused by Seroja Cyclone on buildings and infrastructure in NTT and the technical strategies necessary to build cyclone-safe houses in Indonesia.
In the seminar, a number of researchers from Widya Mandira Catholic University, Nusa Cendana University, Kupang State Polytechnic, and the Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management will present the results of surveys and field assessments that have been carried out following the disaster. The discussion will revolve around questions as follows:
- What is the damage pattern of cyclone Seroja on buildings and infrastructure in East Nusa Tenggara?
- How do we do building retrofitting?
- How do we build cyclone-safe houses in Indonesia?
This seminar is held as a collaborative work between researchers from the Resilience Development Initiative, Charles Darwin University, IRGSC, Bandung Institute of Technology, The Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management, Nusa Cendana University, Widya Mandira Catholic University, and Kupang State Polytechnic.
