The Investing in Human Capital for Disaster Management (INVEST DM) 2.0 in Indonesia commenced on May 17, 2021. INVEST DM 2.0 builds upon the achievements of the USAID/BHA Technical Assistance and training teams (TATTs) program (2014-2019) and the first phase of the INVEST DM program (May 2019-Jan 2021). Program assistance is focused on the national level, with many of the interventions expected to flow-down for sub-national uptake. It directly supports the Government of Indonesia (GOI) National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) in building the capability of its workforce (bureaucratic reforms and capacity building) and national DM capacity through education and training initiatives and improved systems and strategies. These will contribute to strengthened sub-national DRM institutions and people at key administrative levels who will be better equipped and able to fulfill their mandate to deliver effective DRM services and save lives.
INVEST DM 2.0 through its activities in Outcome 1 is supporting Pusdiklat BNPB (Education and Training Center of the National Disaster Management Agency). In delivering effective disaster management and training, learning from the past disasters is crucial so that we can utilize the positives as well as reduce the negatives in the previous disaster’s preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery by all stakeholders. Until today, there is no existing mechanism or framework that enable effective learning takes place and shared through the BNPB system. The goal of this activity is to overcome this gap and develop a learning from disaster framework that can be used at the national, provincial and regency levels.
Mercy Corps Indonesia is part of the global Mercy Corps family, a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.
