Integrating pandemic preparedness and disaster risk reduction to protect economic assets and people in the 'new normal' for the Greater Bandung Metropolitan area of Indonesia


The Greater Bandung Metropolitan area has seen rapid population growth over the past two decades and resulted in significant urban sprawl. In managing the housing, commercial and industrial demand, the city has seen a significant reduction of green space. Bandung is one of the most important national economic hubs in West Java, as home to the headquarters of many of Indonesia’s major corporations, including TELKOM, the National Post Office, the National Energy Institute, PINDAD, PT INTI, PT DI and Bio Farma.
