Jakarta, dpd.go.id - In order to enrich the analysis, clarification and mediation in terms of policy and law in central-regional relations, the Center for Policy and Legal Study (Pusjakum) DPD RI held a Forum Group Discussion (FGD) by inviting several researchers and resource persons and reviewers in BK Meeting Room, 3rd Floor, Building B DPD RI, Parliament Complex Senayan, Jakarta (31/10/2017).

There are 2 FGD sessions organized by Pusjakum in this activity on Institutional Analysis Study of Structuring and Utilization of Geological Information in Indonesia for Development and Study of Institutional Structuring of Effective Disaster Management System. It is used as a review at this session because it has been included in National Legislation Program / Prolegnas 2018 DPR RI and DPD RI.

The first session discussed about the Study of Institutional Analysis of Structuring and Utilization of Geological Information in Indonesia for Development, presented by researcher Amelia Cahyadini, Budi Arta Atmaja, Indra Oka, Fahrizal Haykal (Padjajaran University) and discussion by reviewer Dr. Fajar Hendrasto (Head of Trisakti Technique of Geology) and Riris Katharina (Researcher of DPR RI)

"There should be a regulation to optimize the use of geological information in the preparation of development planning in general and widespread in the form of law", explained Amelia researcher from Padjadjaran University when explaining about efforts to optimize the use of geological information in development planning and the role of DPD related to the utilization of geological information in Indonesia as a guideline for the implementation of development in the first session.

Meanwhile Dr. Fajar Hendrasto as the reviewer explained that the study of geology became a trend after the tsunami disaster in Aceh and disasters in Java and Sumatera.

"All regional development requires geological information but how to make the data into a standard is the main" explained the Head of Trisakti Technical Geology.

Meanwhile, another reviewer, Riris Katharina added that the data should be comprehensive not only from one case. In addition, the Gap between das sollen (what should) with das sein (what happens) related to the theme raised, it needs complete supporting data.

The second session with the Study of Institutional Structuring of Effective Disaster Management System. Presented by the researchers. Dewi Kania, Prita Amalia, Yulinda Adharani, Adi Nurzaman, Lutfi Pusponegoro (Padjajaran University) and presenting speakers namely by Lilik Kurniawan (BNPB), Sri Nurhayati and Sulasi Rongiyati (Board of DPR RI)

The researchers from Padjadjaran University concluded that there is no clear and measurable agreement on what is called disaster related to the operational definition of disaster operations and disaster status.

"BNPB needs to establish the criteria for the formation of BPBD and for regions with high disaster risk level must form the BPBD", explained Adi Nurzaman

On the other hand, BNPB has mapped all regencies / cities throughout Indonesia in 2011 repaired in 2013 with Indonesia disaster index and updated in 2015.

"There are 136 regencies / municipal priorities that are prone to disasters, there are no 514 districts / municipalities that are completely free from disaster threats. Mapping of disaster areas in Indonesia is useful to protect national disaster-related growth centers. Technical Criteria for the establishment of BPBD already exist and always consulted to BNPB ", explained Lilik Kurniawan

On the occasion, Drs. Sadarieli Zebua as Head of Pusjakum, explained that there needs to be a refinement in the research included in the FGD and how this research can be useful for the progress of DPD RI especially in the function of legislation and authority. (ast)
