Lingkar Association is a non-profit organization formed in 2006 and engaged in disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and sustainable development.
In its history, Lingkar Association was a consortium of organizations to work together in the Yogyakarta earthquake emergency response (2006). After the emergency period was declared complete, the consortium’s collaboration also ended.
Productive interactions of volunteers generate ideas and shared ideas to continue to develop communities in disaster risk reduction. From those ideas, in September 2006, it was agreed to form an organization, the Circle Society, which was based on an association of individuals who shared the same concern and vision, namely disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and sustainable development. The purpose of the transformation as an ‘association’ is to be able to provide more optimal services to people in need, especially those who live in disaster-prone areas.See more
