Description & Progress
Indonesia faces a high risk of natural hazards, such as earthquakes, and climate-related hazards such as extreme weather events. Poor and vulnerable households are often unable to take preventive measures and cope with the resulting disasters. They thus face existential threats, including loss of lives, livelihoods, and assets. Most existing social protection mechanisms do not cover these risks. Overarching and coordinating mechanisms are largely absent. Therefore, expanding social protection to address the impact of natural and climate related hazards is crucial and may contribute to the well being of households especially those that are poor and vulnerable.
The Adaptive Social Protection component of the SPP facilities a multi-stakeholder partnership with the responsible Indonesian partner institutions to develop a comprehensive strategy on ASP that will ultimately result in the adoption of an ASP Roadmap by the end of 2021. This roadmap will provide the fundamentals for expanding social protection against risks from natural and climate-related hazards, particularly for poor and vulnerable population groups. Social protection is one component of the ASP approach and therefore essential in developing the ASP roadmap.
The purpose of the assignment is to:
- Support the international social protection long-term and short-term experts with the compilation of in-depth information of the existing social protection landscape in Indonesia, on which the ASP roadmap shall build upon,
- Contribute to the elaboration of recommendations for the ASP roadmap and other related documents, and
- Provide continuous support to the TWG throughout the process of roadmap development
- Become host organization for 3-4 other STEs working with LTEs experts in Madiba Consult, responsible for contracting and paying these STEs.
Mainly qualitative: Literature Review (policy, regulation, etc.), consultancies with policy stakeholders, FGD at the communities (planned in Q1/Q2 2021, depending on COVID-19 situation)
