MIKTA is a diverse and cross-regional grouping of powers that brings together Mexico, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Türkiye and Australia. Given the growing challenges our planet is faced with, including disasters from droughts, desertification, loss of biodiversity, food shortages, water scarcity, wildfires, and sea-level rise, MIKTA has reiterated its commitment to investing more in research, innovation and infrastructure to strengthen environmental sustainability, adaptation, and resilience against the adverse effects of climate change and disaster risks. In line with this commitment, MIKTA undertakes a joint advocacy campaign highlighting the triple benefits of investing in prevention to accelerate disaster risk reduction, protect development gains and build resilient communities.

The campaign promotes diverse local and regional examples of efforts by the MIKTA members to strengthen disaster risk resilience through investing in prevention. Through sharing of experiences and good practice, the campaign aims to strengthen global adaptation and resilience efforts and build global consensus around the need to accelerate disaster risk reduction efforts.

Indonesia is familiar with various kinds of hazard. As it is located within the ring of fire, it faces a constant risk of earthquakes and tsunamis. Heavy rainfalls persist for almost half of the year, provoking risks of floods and landslides.

As strategic partners and neighbours in the Asia-Pacific region, Australia and Indonesia share a strong bond. We have faced and stood in lock step with each other through disasters, including the 2004 Tsunami and Australia’s bushfires of 2020.
