SUSTAIN 2011’s International conference is purposed:
- To provide a forum for international researchers community to discuss, share and exchange their latest research progress in relation with sustainable future issues.
- To develop and promote a sustainable networking between participants to hold human securities and bridging ideas into policies and desired realities.
- To broaden information access for scientific communities toward global scientific, technology and engineering societies
- To empower Asian in general and South East Asia in particular for research collaboration, network and partnership among researcher communities and decision makers.
SUSTAIN 2011’s Integrated Workshop on Sustainable Post-Disaster Recovery is aimed at providing a rich, comprehensive, and applicable multidisciplinary basis for designing an effective and sustainable Post-Disaster Recovery strategy. Involving policymakers, NGOs, and academia, this workshop will be an interesting and fruitful forum for all concerned actors to share their ideas and experiences, and then came up with applicable solutions for the future of Asia. The forum will be in a form of Focus Group Discussion, with two kick-off speech from Japanese and Indonesian government representative.

SUSTAIN 2011 International conference.
We are living in an important historical point. The rise of Asia had brought waves of optimism across Asian nations. This brings many opportunities to shape a sustainable future for human security in Asia. However, there are still many problems and challenges lie in various aspects and levels, from community to governance, from politics to economy, and from global to local.
The shift of pendulum generated some consequences; some of them lead to natural resources depletion, shortage of carbon-based energy, shortage of food and water, as well as over-utilization of natural and human resources. The future economic and technology heavily rely on either the proper utilization of Asian natural resources, or well-prepared human resources.
To create breakthroughs for ensuring the prosperous future of the Asian people, deep understanding of problems and the dynamics shaping them is at paramount importance. Thus, students and scholars are at the forefront of this process.
Learning from the advanced West is important. However, it is clear that “one size fits all” is not always applicable. Asia, with its unique and vibrant culture, history, and socio-political contexts, offers various different kinds of wisdom and solutions. It depends on us to answer this intellectual challenge. Thus, we believe that building a network of students and scholars working on various aspects and levels of challenges for the future of Asia with various academic background is an important step to find creative and fresh answers.
However, scholarly understanding of challenges and their creative answers to problems should not stop at books, journals, and conferences. They should inspire policies and actions, both by the government and civil society. We should create bridges to bring ideas to realities.
Therefore, to answer above some mentioned issues, an international annual conference 2010 was carried out by the Indonesian Student Association (ISA) in Kyoto, Japan. Regarding related issues and its effort to continue provide international gathering, ISA will continue to organize ‘The 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Future for Human Security’.
SUSTAIN 2011 Workshop.
One of the continuing challenges for the sustainable welfare of Asian people is its disaster-prone characteristics such as Indonesia and Japan. The both countries are located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, making earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcano eruptions frequently happen. Apart from the natural disasters, complex social, cultural, and political situations in various Asian countries offer a wide range of possibilities for man-made disasters such as violent conflicts.
When disasters happen, all aspects of life disrupted: families killed or wounded, homes and health facilities destroyed, economic activities stopped, trauma widespread. Furthermore, compared to instant casualties caused by the disaster itself, the slow and unsustainable recovery often claims more victims.
Disaster prevention and recovery efforts without good governance and clear strategies waste resources, both intentionally (e.g. prone to corruption) or unintentionally (e.g. ineffective allocation, cultural gap problems, etc.). Thus, given this disaster-prone characteristic, a comprehensive strategic policy for directing disaster prevention and post-disaster recovery efforts is at paramount importance for Asian countries.
Who are stakeholders appointed to govern disaster prevention and post disaster recovery? In our recent approach of public administration, namely good/democratic governance, multi stakeholders have to govern it. Each stakeholder must have different position and role in governing disaster prevention and recovery system. If the stakeholders can work together by using the principles of good governance, the disaster prevention and recovery system will work optimally to prevent, to save, and to recover the society.
Therefore, sharing Indonesian and Japanese experiences in disaster prevention and recovery governance is really important in order to find any problem of governing the disaster prevention and recovery system. At the same time, it is to create a formulation of good ‘disaster prevention and recovery’ governance. Furthermore, the workshop is a vehicle of bearing a network among the stake holders namely government, NGOs, and academia from both countries who concern on disaster management. In the future, the network is expected growing up to help and initiate any immediate action in disaster management in Indonesia-Japan. The constructive impact globally is that the network will become a good model of disaster management network for others country in the world.
Based on the background, SUSTAIN 2011 of PPI Kyoto will undertake a workshop to facilitate a focused discussion of multi stakeholders from Indonesia and Japan. The workshop is SUSTAIN 2011’s Integrated Workshop on Sustainable Post-Disaster Recovery.
