Indonesia: Law of the Republic of Indonesia concerning disaster management (Law no. 24 of 2007)
National Agency for Disaster Management (Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana)
This law, issued on 26 April 2007, has carried out the new perspective on disaster management: having inserted disaster management not only in an emergency response context, but also as pre-disaster and post-disaster. The previous perspective of disaster management emphasized only emergency response/relief of disaster.
