Under USAID/OFDA funding, Mercy Corps is implementing its “Investing in Human Capital for Disaster Management” (INVEST) program at the national level and three provinces and districts. INVEST DM will work to support the Government of Indonesia (GOI) disaster management institutions and people at key administrative levels to be better equipped to fulfill their mandate to deliver effective DRM services and save lives. INVEST DM seeks to provide a holistic approach to support Indonesia’s disaster management institutions, supporting BNPB’s own ‘people-centered’ approach, where comprehensive inputs in the areas of technical capacity in preparedness-response-recovery; policy and planning; governance; and organizational development. These areas are grounded in human capital, serving to capacitate and reinforce the people that make it all function. This means supporting GOI personnel at the national and sub-national levels alike. At the sub-national level, INVEST will strengthen the provincial and district level Disaster Management Agencies (BPBDs) by embedding experts within BPBD offices to provide ongoing, day-to-day technical support tailored to the needs of each province. The program also implements disaster management training aligned with the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) standards. The proposed target provinces are Central Java, East Java, and West Sumatra, however, the final target provinces may change as per government and donor preference
