Sukameriah, Gurukinayan, Bekerah and Simacem villages which are located on the end side of the horse shoe- shape valley extending from the summit crater can be a devastated area from large eruption or lahars as a consequence of: Short term: Relocation to the safe area of residents from the Sukameriah, Bekerah, and Simacem villages.

Presentation on big data and its application for humanitarian issues - Pulse Lab Jakarta Global Pulse is a special initiative of the UN Secretary- General that started in Global Pulse specializes on research to analyze big data and to help the UN system with real time digital information for decision making. Global Pulse has the vision to have real- time measurements of human well- being by harnessing big data for sustainable development. A partnership was made with the government, NGOs, the public sector, and private companies. Global Pulse is analyzing different types of data sets, primarily the publicly available web data sets to analyze how people react when something happens such as a disaster, how people evacuate, how people change behavior. From the big data sets, they analyze three issues: a) situational awareness, b) early warning, and c) programme evaluation. Currently there are Pulse Labs in the UN headquarters in New York, Indonesia and Uganda. Pulse Lab Jakarta office was officially opened in March as a joint project of the Government and UN.
