Disaster Mitigation Management by Geological Agency of the ESDM Ministry, Best in the World

 

The Indonesian nation deserves pride in having the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG), a world class institution in terms of observing and monitoring volcanology and geological disaster mitigation.

 

 

 Having won awards and achievements domestically, PVMBG is now awarded a high performance award in Crisis Monitoring and Management from the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI).

 

President of  IAVCEI Don Dingwell has decided and selected PVMBG to receive an award for performance in the Volcano Monitoring and Management Crisis. This award will be given to coincide with the implementation of Cities on Volcanoes which will take place on September 2-7, 2018, in Napoli.

 

Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Ignasius Jonan appreciated the achievements achieved by PVMBG and hoped that the future could be further improved.

 

"Congratulations to PVMBG, we are very supportive and proud that it has proved that with all efforts the Ministry of ESDM has given the best for natural resources management, including protecting people from geological disasters, especially volcanoes," said Jonan.

 

Adding Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Head of PVMBG, Kasbani said that this IAVCEI award is the first time, no other volcanological organization has ever received it.

 

"The IAVCEI Award for PVMBG is the first time in Indonesia, and no volcanological organization from other countries has ever received this award, its assessment is based on monitoring aspects of volcanoes and how it organizes the volcano crisis (pre, during and after the eruption)," Kasbani .

 

According Kasbani received this award is a proud achievement because of hundreds of volcanological organizations around the world, PVMBG was selected to be the first organization to accept this. This shows that what PVMBG has done so far has been well appreciated by the world's largest volcanic organization (IAVCEI).

 

"This achievement is a great achievement because PVMBG will be the first volcanic institution in the world to receive this important award. And this award becomes a challenge for PVMBG in the future must be able to maintain performance and even improve the quality of monitoring of volcano in Indonesia," Kasbani explained .

"This success is thanks to the full support of all parties," he continued.

One of the information service products to public PVMBG mainstay is MAGMA Indonesia (Multiplatform Application for Geohazard Mitigation and Assessment in Indonesia / https: //magma.vsi.esdm.go.id/).
