Indonesia’s Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia (Ristekdikti) and the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) invite applications to the Understanding of the Impacts of Hydrometeorological Hazards in Indonesia programme. The programme has a budget of up to £1.5m for the UK component and a budget of up to IDR 2,400,000,000 for the Indonesian component.
The aim of the programme is to improve understanding of the impacts of hydrometeorological hazards, such as floods, droughts, landslides and storm surges, in Indonesia. The focus is on identifying, characterising and predicting the environmental and social variables that influence the occurrence, impact, severity and duration of hydrometeorological hazards in Indonesia to enable increased preparedness and resilience to future events.

Ristekdikti will fund the Indonesian component of the successful projects and UK researchers will receive funding from NERC. Projects can be maximum 36 months duration.
