Consultant – The Adaption of Curriculum and Modules of Flood Courses – INVEST DM 25 views

Job Expired


Indonesia is located in an area that has geographic, geological, hydrological, and demographic conditions that are prone to disasters, that requires systematic and coordinated efforts to manage the risks and impacts. The Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 24 of 2007 concerning Disaster Management is a strong legal basis for a planned, coordinated, systematic and integrated disaster management mandated to various agencies at the central, provincial and regencies/cities level.

This Scope of Work supports INVEST-DM Output 2.3, namely, the Pusdiklat has a mandatory curriculum to align with BNPB’s strategic priorities. This Output is implemented by the Pusdiklat PB, supported by ADPC, the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC), and The University of Hawaii (UH) through the adaption of the relevant training system and curriculum.

NDPTC has offered an established and tested course curriculum and module on flood management and preparedness to be adapted for the conditions in Indonesia. This course is relevant for Indonesia as there are flood events of increasing frequency and magnitude from year to year. Environmental degradation, high rainfall, poor drainage, management, and maintenance systems, as well as land subsidence and rising sea levels are among the causes of increasing flood events, sometimes with devastating impacts on people’s lives and livelihoods. The BNPB Education and Training Center (Pusdiklat PB) has not yet developed and conducted flood specific training programs.

The adapted curriculum/module is expected to be used by the Pusdiklat PB and other training providers throughout Indonesia. The draft curriculum/module will be tested through a real face-to-face (or online) course, and is expected to be attended by 50 people from various backgrounds (provincial level BPBD officials, districts/cities in charge of preparedness, emergency handling and rehabilitation-reconstruction, as well as Pusdiklat’s trainers).





In order to adapt the curriculum and training modules developed by the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC) University of Hawaii (UH), the consultant will review, translate and restructure the training curriculum and modules into the conditions of flood management in Indonesia. This is in recognition that the NDPTC training curriculum and module are not entirely applicable to the conditions in Indonesia.

There are 8 (eight) modules to be adapted:

Module 1: Welcome, Introduction, Administration;

Module 2: The Science of Flooding;

Module 3: Flood and Disaster Risk Reduction Based Spatial Planning;

Module 4: Flood Policy Planning;

Module 5: Flood Forecasting and Public Information;

Module 6: Safe Preparation and Mitigation for Flood;

Module 7: Institutional and Flood Management Coordination; and

Module 8: Course Summary and Administration

The adaption will have to consider and integrate the natural conditions (geography, hydrology, etc.) as well as the socio-economic, political contexts and institution of flood management in Indonesia.





The consultant will adapt the following modules into the Indonesian context and in Bahasa Indonesia:

Module 1: Welcome, Introduction, Administration.

Module 2: The Science of Flooding

Module 3: Flood and Disaster Risk Reduction Based Spatial Planning

Module 4: Flood Policy Planning

Module 5: Flood Forecasting and Public Information

Module 6: Safe Preparation and Mitigation for flood

Module 7: Institutional and Flood Management Coordination

Module 8: Course Summary and Administration
