Living With a Volcano in Your Backyard

Stories form the Volcanic Communities on Building Recilience

Indonesia’s National Agency of Disaster Countermeasure (BNPB), with the support of the Australian Government through SIAP SIAGA program compiled a publication about the local cultures and best practices from the communities living nearby seven of the active volcanoes in Indonesia.

“Living with a Volcano in Your Backyard” tells the stories, experiences and best practices of the volcano communities in their effort to live in harmony with threats and risks of natural disasters.
