Adaptive Social Protection Program in Indonesia—Short-Term Expert for Social Protection

Poverty and Inequality Analysis
Policy Research

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 who are poor and vulnerable. The Adaptive Social Protection component of the social protection program facilitates a multi-stakeholder partnership with responsible Indonesian partner institutions to develop a comprehensive strategy on the Adaptive Social Protection (ASP), which will ultimately result in the adoption of ASP Roadmap by the end of 2021. The ASP 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, therefore essential in the development of the ASP Roadmap.

The purpose of the assignment is to
  1. support international long- and short-term international experts with the compilation of in-depth information of the existing social protection landscape in Indonesia, which forms the basis of the ASP Roadmap;
  2. contribute to the elaboration of recommendations for the ASP Roadmap and other related documents; 
  3. provide continuous support to the technical working group TWG throughout the process of the ASP roadmap development; and
  4. become the host organization for 3–4 other short-term experts STEs working with long-term experts LTEs experts in Madiba Consult, responsible for contracting and paying these STEs.

Mainly qualitative: Literature Review (policy, regulation, etc.), consultancies with policy stakeholders, focus group discussions (FGDs) with the communities (planned in first or second quarter of 2021, depending on the COVID-19 pandemic situation).
