InaSAFE wins award as one of the “Most Promising Open Source Projects of

First, Indonesia’s President Dr Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono praised InaSAFE
(Indonesia Scenario Assessment for Emergencies), as being “very beneficial
for all of us” <http://www.aifdr.org/?p=821>.

Now, this innovative software developed by Indonesia’s National Disaster
Management Agency (BNPB), and AusAID through the Australia-Indonesia
Facility for Disaster Reduction (AIFDR), together with the World Bank, has
been selected as a 2012 Open Source Rookie of the
Year<http://www.blackducksoftware.com/open-source-rookies> by
Black Duck, the trusted partner for open source software adoption,
management and governance.

InaSAFE, along with projects from groups such as Yahoo! and Twitter, was
selected for this prestigious award from amongst 1,000’s of open source
programs that were started in 2012.

InaSAFE is free and open software that anyone with basic computer skills
can use. It can produce realistic disaster scenarios for contingency
planning. It has been designed to help Indonesia and other countries in the
region to effectively prepare for natural disasters by better understanding
the likely impacts of disasters such as floods, earthquakes or tsunamis.

AIFDR’s  Risk and Vulnerability Manager, Dr Trevor Dhu said that developing
InaSAFE as an Open Source project was a conscious decision that aligns with
the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) 2010 policy
on open source which states that “Australian Government agencies will
actively participate in open source software communities and contribute
back where appropriate” (

“Developing InaSAFE as an open source project has allowed us to encourage
global collaboration.

“It has allowed disaster experts from across the world to contribute to
this effort to better understand disasters and, ultimately, reduce the
tragic impact of disasters in Indonesia and the region.

“Open source has proven to be a viable model for software development
because it maximises quality, transparency and exposure of the project.

“This generally leads to more collaboration and increased sustainability“,
Dr Dhu said.

Now in its fifth year, the prestigious annual award identifies the top 10
open source projects of the year based on an analysis of open source
projects found in the Black Duck®
 and Ohloh.net <http://www.ohloh.net/>. This analysis highlighted that
InaSAFE represents more than 50 person years of work from over 20
