Culture and disasters: a beautiful mind of indigenous flood legend from Papua


Community adaptation and risk reduction governance series, issue 3, December 2012:

This issue focuses on local knowledge preserved in the almost forgotten flood legend from Arso, Keerom, Papua Province, Indonesia. The authors argue that local risk management knowledge is printed in cultural 'media' such as legends and myths. The local knowledge provides clues on human-environment relations in the past that is almost forgotten which can be beneficial for present generation.
