Risk governance concept promotes the empirical power (such as government, market and civil society) that co-exists to govern risk and catastrophe.  This paper
highlights evidence of disaster risk governance at national and local levels in Indonesia. Drawing upon the strength of social network approach, it specifically
analyzes and presents the network of actors in disaster risk reduction policy reform in Indonesia where civil society plays vital roles. Two case studies are
provided to exemplify the roles of civil society at local level. The paper concludes that disaster reduction policy reform at different levels in Indonesia have been
equally coproduced by civil society, local governments, national government and international actors.
