Fourth (4th) Issue: March 2012
Briefing Note 1. Towards a Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction:  Indonesian Civil Society First Response.

Third Issue: January 2012
Focus: Culture and Disasters: A Beautiful Mind of Indigenous Flood Legend From Papua.
  • For January 2012, CARR focuses on local knowledge preserved in the almost forgotten flood legend from Arso, Keerom, Papua Province, Indonesia.
    The authors argue that the Arso's flood legend reflects the beautiful mind of the indigenous people of Arso. Today, policy makers and young
    generations see the legend as an empty myth. Under rapid social demographic and economic change today, Keerom's path to sustainable development
    will be challenged by an increasing vulnerability and risks. The local knowledge provide clues on human-environment relations in the past that is almost
    forgotten which can be beneficial for present generation. PDF

Second Issue - December 2011
Focus: “Do you want to be a man or a woman in the reincarnation?” A reflection on gender after disaster in Nias Island, Indonesia!
  • In December 2011, CARR focuses on gender after disasters in Nias Island, North Sumatra, Indonesia. “If there is incarnation, and you were given
    chances to come to the same village as human, what gender do you want to be: a woman or a man?”  The authors used this question to have a glimpse of
    the perspectives of both women and men in rural and urban setting regarding their roles in post disaster settings in three districts in North Sumatra,
    Indonesia. PDF

First Issue - November 2011
