According to BNPB’s systems and strategy assistant, Raditya Jati, kulkul has a close meaning with the issue of GPDRR, namely disaster risk reduction.

“By hitting the kulkul, the sound produced is an early warning to the public,” Raditya as head of the GPDRR national organizing committee secretariat said on Wednesday (5/25).

Early warning is closely linked to disaster risk reduction. According to Raditya, the kulkul has become part of Balinese society. He hopes the kulkul will continue to live in the community and become part of the disaster early warning system.

He also said it was a form of local wisdom from Indonesia as good practice in disaster risk reduction.

“It is hoped that local wisdom will continue to exist as a form of lasting resilience,” Raditya said.

“Ultimately, this early warning can save the local community from the threat of disaster,” he added.
