IRSA Book Series on Regional Development No. 18
IDR 100,000 (USD 10)
Due to its location, Indonesia is prone to large seismic activities, some of which have caused a significant number of fatalities and damages to human livelihoods. The country, hence, has to always be prepared and resilient toward these kinds of event. Abilities to soften the human and economic impact of natural shocks and to bounce back the economy as quickly as we can are crucial in sustaining the human and economic development of the country. This book presents disaster-related issues, including disaster management, sustaining regional development, improving human capital in the country, rural development and conserving the environment. Hopefully this book can attract more regional scientists to work on disasters and regional development issues.
The Indonesian Regional Science Association (IRSA) is preparing its IRSA Book Series on Regional Development No. 19. The topic of this book will be on regional aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Hence, we seek papers reporting and/or analysing local dynamics related to the spread of Covid-19 pandemic in a region of Indonesia.

health and public health
politics and governance
economics and regional development
education, human capital and labour market

social capital, community and trust
environment, natural resources and sustainable development
