Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund (ASB) is one of Germany’s oldest and largest social
welfare organisations with over 200 offices and a membership of 1.2 million.
ASB Indonesia and Philippines aims to build resilience through inclusive and
risk aware development. ASB has been working in Indonesia, in partnership with
the Indonesian Ministry of Home Affairs, since 2006. In Indonesia ASB works
directly with partners and communities, and in support of government, to
empower and build resilience through an inclusive whole-of-community approach. PROJECT
Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFFDRR) and 2030 Agenda place risk
management central to resilience. Risk prevention and reduction are
increasingly recognised as central to development alongside an ongoing emphasis
on preparedness for response in the SFDRR. At the same time, a broadened understanding
of risk management, under the umbrella of resilience, is proving challenging to
governments. The challenges lie in integrating key development components, such
as income generation for the poor, alongside improved preparedness initiatives.
‘Strengthening of DRR capacities and resilience of coastal communities in West
Sumatera, therefore, seeks to link socio-economic development activities and
risk management to reduce underlying risk factors in two districts in West
Sumatera, Pesisir Selatan and the Mentawai Islands. The project key components
include capacity building for community through institutionalised and practical
integration of preparedness and livelihood development measurements. The
inclusion of most at-risk groups, i.e. women, older people and persons with
disability in the project implementation will serve as social cohesion
contributor to strengthen community resilience. The project will also seek to
support governance capacities in the two working areas. The project
will seek synergies with government planning and programming where possible and
promote greater emphasis on risk management and inclusion of highly at risks in
line with the National Resilient Village Programme priorities. For this
project, ASB Indonesia and Philippines is seeking expression of interest from
qualified and commited individuals for following position
Project Manager and Project
Sumatera, Pesisir Selatan and Mentawai Islands with possible travel to other areas as necessary.
