Acceleration for disasters: Evaluation of the disaster management act in Indonesia

This paper discusses disaster law evaluation in Indonesia after enacting Law Number 24 of 2007 concerning Disaster Management (Disaster Management Act). Several issues, such as the affirmation of the central and regional government’s authority, the role of Disaster Management Agency, and the accountability of emergency funds, are noteworthy to reform the Disaster Management Act in Indonesia. The methodology is legal, library-based research focusing mainly on primary and secondary sources. This paper argues that the amendment to the Disaster Management Act’s urgency is crucial to respond to some accelerations after a decade of the Disaster Management Act. Completing the Disaster Management Act is expected to be a comprehensive legal umbrella in guaranteeing citizens’ constitutional rights and duty when a disaster is in Indonesia.
