Disaster relief delegation to Indonesia

Business Sweden in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden in Jakarta invites you to participate in a business delegation to Indonesia on 14th – 15th of April

Background

  • Indonesia suffers from periodic occurrences of droughts, forest fires, floods, landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis.
  • Since the year 2000 more than 8.5 million people all over Indonesia have been affected by over 11 000 thousand disasters which have claimed the lives of nearly 200 000 people and have caused economic damages estimated to approximately USD 15 billion.
  • For disaster-prone countries like Indonesia, preparedness and resilience to overcome disasters is vital. Therefore disaster risk reduction (DRR) has been put as a high priority in Indonesia’s national agenda and it’s being integrated into Indonesia’s legislation and national development plan in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action.

Demand for disaster relief solutions

To achieve a strong national DRR capacity, Indonesia has shifted its conventional paradigm of disaster management from emergency response and recovery to a more comprehensive approach. In this respect, resources have been invested primarily in disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness. Based on the discussions with key stakeholders, Business Sweden has identified the following areas that are of high interest for procurement:

ICT equipment

  • Early warning systems
  • Risk assessment tools and software to identify the most vulnerable areas for disaster
  • Satellite communication tools
  • Human bodies detectors

Infrastructure related solutions

  • Multifunctional shelters: field hospitals, schools etc.
