Bidang keahlian anggota BDSG dan komitmen untuk kontribusi di kebencanaan

Urusan kebencanaan selalu terkait dengan berbagai bidang. Terang saja, ilmu kebencanaan merupakan ilmu tentang kehidupan. Hanya saja fasenya berada di fase kehidupan yang 'tidak normal'. Nah ketika kita berbicara tentang kehidupan, seluruh bidang studi atau keahlian pasti terkait dengannya.

Begitu juga dengan BDSG yang dibentuk dengan niat menyatukan mahasiswa dan peneliti muda dari berbagai bidang untuk kontribusi ke kesiapsiagaan masyarakat.

List ini dibuat oleh anggota BDSG dari berbagai latar belakang pendidikan, pada tanggal 17 Desember 2011, setelah workshop mengenai kebencanaan dan bidang keahlian. List yang dibuat masing2 ini menyatakan komitmen anggota BDSG tersebut untuk mendalami bidangnya masing2 tersebut dan berbagi ilmunya ke seluruh anggota BDSG untuk kemudian jadi bahan kontribusi ke masyarakat.

Questionnaire Survey Facilitation on "Role of Youth Unions in Bandung Municipality, Indonesia In Enhancing the Resilience to Disaster"

On Saturday, 12th November 2011 BDSG facilitated a questionnaire survey initiated by Mrs. Farah Mulyasari which aimed to collect data about role of youth to enhance disaster resilience in Bandung City. This survey was held as a part of her process to get Doctoral Degree in Kyoto University, and this time BDSG, as an organization which concern is about disaster risk reduction, became her partner.
At this survey, there were 12 member of BDSG involved, who were divided into 10 facilitators (me,  Uly, Kokom, Aca, Cacan, Leits, Sapto, Danang, Capung, Alpian), facilitator coordinator (Iche), and 2 persons as admin (Cacan, and Caesar).
