The Knowledge Portal accessible through knowledge.caribencana.id is our flagship product and the main axis of innovation that CARI! dedicates to the development of knowledge-based disaster risk management (DRM). Through this Knowledge Portal CARI! seeks to collect knowledge products related to disasters about Indonesia and other related themes. It is then visualized spatially and classified in accordance with the DRM phase, specific contexts or themes, regional context.. The information displayed in this knowledge portal continues to be developed and is then designed to be able to work automatically to carry out research products collection, management, and visualization. To ensure the quality of the information produced, CARI! conduct its own research and development to validate information and metadata of the collected research products..
CARI! Knowledge Portal is freely accessible to the public to speed up the diffusion of knowledge-based disaster risk management by the public and professionals, informed development policy and planning processes, and even to produce new knowledge.
CARI! is committed to continuing the development of our analytical tools for enhancing our Knowledge Portal. This serve dual mode, both the daily utilization of Knowledge Portal and for informing Indonesia Disaster Knowledge Update as well as for supporting research projects and premium analytics. This include web scrapper, automation and automatic tagging for better synthesis and area briefs, social network analysis, and spatial indexing using the H3 approach.
The whole of social life could be seen as ‘a set of points some of which are joined by lines’ to form a ‘total network’ of relation. Social Network Analysis (SNA) is the study of the structural relationships among interacting network members – individuals, organizations, etc. – and of how those relationships produce varying effects. SNA technique is able to determine, through mathematical algorithms, whether network members are connected (and to what degree) one to another in terms of a variety of relationships like communication, resource sharing, or knowledge exchanges. In CARI!, we apply SNA to understand the networking processes and structure of individuals and organizations in various topics and issues within disaster risk management, climate actions, humanitarian actions, and development in general.
CARI! develops its own crawling engine, which automatically and on a regular basis collects data, information, news, knowledge, and policy/regulations products related to the disaster management in Indonesia, or any other topics and subject-matters at the request ov various clients and partners. Data, information, knowledge, and policy/regulation products are then shown in the area brief feature of Knowledge Portal as well as based on request from clients and partners for meeting various projects and studies objectives.
H3, an innovative geospatial indexing system, transforms the world into a grid of hexagonal cells, providing an open-source solution licensed under Apache 2. With its hierarchical structure, H3 tackles the data science challenges faced by Uber, enabling the integration of diverse datasets. This powerful indexing system goes beyond the advantages of hexagonal grids, offering features for flow modeling, making it an ideal choice for leveraging Machine Learning in geospatial data analysis.

CARI! is committed to become one of the leading actors in production of disaster-related knowledge and hence on a regular basis produce various analytical, communication, information, and education (IEC) products in various interval (daily, monthly, and bi-monthly). On a daily basis, CARI's analytical products and eventsare shared through IEC distribution containing disaster-related educational contents through our social media channels (IG, Facebook, Twitter, IG and LinkedIn) and in a long form through the CARI! blog.
In-depth analysis that visualize and provide insights into the the knowledge landscape and pattern of disaster-related topics are produced through the the Indonesian Disaster Knowledge Update (IDKU) distributed on a monthly basis. Meanwhile, a recapitulation of information based on the premium analytics and projects results, IDKU, and outreach activities of the CARI! team is published through the Bimonthly Gazette. For further developing these analytical and IEC products, CARI! open for collaboration with academics, practitioners, and policy-makers to share ideas and utilize various potentials to confront problems and unique unique potentials of disaster-related knowledge for immediate actions.
