Working with community: good practices community based disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  Lingkar Association

This document is a summary of the lessons learned from the implementation of the Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction programme (PRBBK) in Yogyakarta and Central Java Province, as well as of the School-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (PRBBS) programme supported by Plan Indonesia, with the objectives to achieve a resilient and responsive toward disasters community, including school community, through the integration of disaster risk reduction (DRR) into the planning system that already exists in the villages and schools.

It includes the following good practices from: (i) resilient village initiation practices; (ii) a model of community-based landslide early warning system in Negarajati village, Cilacap District, Central Java Province; (iii) the ownership of CBDRR practice in village development planning process in Negarajati village, Cilacap District and Pengkok village, Gunungkidul District; and (iv) safe and prepared school of Perkumpulan Lingkar. Learning from the experience of the disaster earthquake in Yogyakarta and Central Java in 2006, it calls for systematic efforts for disaster risk reduction to be implemented with responsibility at all levels so that devastating impact of disasters such as earthquake, mount Merapi eruption, flood, landslide and other disaster-prone conditions that exist in each region of Indonesia can be minimized.
