Sister village as a model for empowering Balinese people in facing the eruption of Mount Agung between the village of Duda Utara and the village of Semarapurakangin has gone well.

This model is one of the procedures for community empowerment in helping victims of Mount Agung eruption to provide disaster emergency facilities. Sister village between Duda Utara Village and Semarapurakangin Village is combined with indigenous Balinese local wisdom, namely Nguopin or the application of mutual cooperation with a sincere heart without receiving compensation.
