Indonesia

Indonesia has made remarkable progress in recent years, achieving relative political and economic stability and becoming a member of the G-20. Despite this, its vast population spread across thousands of islands remains highly vulnerable to natural disasters. Rising sea levels due to climate change threaten the extensive coastal and island communities throughout the Indonesian archipelago. High poverty and malnutrition rates and low health indicators exist in many rural areas. Rapid, dense urbanization is prompting social unrest and the risk of pandemic outbreaks.

OCHA’s key focus in 2012 is to work closely with the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) to strengthen its capacity for preparedness and response. Technical expertise will be shared in strategic planning, underpinned by proper needs assessments and risk analysis. OCHA will work with the Government and partners to streamline humanitarian funding mechanisms for effective response.

OCHA will also continue to work towards expanding and strengthening partnerships with non-traditional humanitarian actors. Ongoing efforts target the private sectior through the Disaster Resource Partnership (DRP) and the Indonesia Chamber of Commerce.
