"Uphold The Rights of
Poor and Oppressed"
Center for Disaster Risk Management & Community Development Studies

Center for Disaster Risk Management and Community Development Studies (CDRM&CDS) was established as one of the department of Nommensen University in August 2007 through a Program Cooperation Agreement. The program of CDRM & CDS was developed in close consultation with 12 Lutheran World Federation member churches in Indonesia, located mainly in North Sumatera and West Sumatra provinces.

This program aims to enhance local resources and strengthen self-reliance by access, where appropriate, to a shared pool of expertise, financial resources, information and networks on local as well as national and regional levels.
