Policy advice on adaptive social protection

In Indonesia, there is a great risk of poverty due to extreme weather events and natural disasters and the accompanying damage to assets and loss of income. According to the 2017 World Risk Report, Indonesia ranks 33 of 171 high-risk countries. The project objective is a preparation of analyses which specify the risks and vulnerabilities and develop options on what social protection for poor and vulnerable households, within the framework of the existing disaster risk management, could look like. This project improves risk coverage and promotes independent livelihoods for the poor and vulnerable. Madiba Consult, in consortium with United Nations Environment, Humanity and Security (UNU-EHS) and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII), is responsible for the component of policy advice on adaptive social protection at the national level. The National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB), Directorate for Natural Resources and Regional Cooperation in BAPPENAS and the Ministry of Finance sub-department, the National Fiscal Policy Agency (BKF) are among the members of the ASP National Coordination Forum
