Gender Assessment in Southeast Sulawesi, Maluku, and East Java

Background
USAID’s five year “Adaptasi Perubahan Iklim dan Ketangguhan” (APIK) Project supports the Government of Indonesia to strengthen climate and disaster resilience, working in an integrated manner from the national level down to the regional and community levels.

In support of this overall objective, APIK seeks to:
  • Mainstream climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction into national and sub-national governance frameworks;
  • Build the capacity of local communities and the private sector to address climate change and weather-related natural hazards; and
  • Support the use of information for climate and disaster risk management among key stakeholders.
In achieving APIK’s objective of improving the management of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction in Indonesia, APIK take into account gender equality and female empowerment. USAID’s initial gender analysis done on the intersection of gender and climate change in Indonesia suggested that many of gender inequalities related to climate change adaptation [and disaster risk reduction] are due to pre-existing inequalities. In this context—to map out the inequalities—gender analysis is required as way to find ways to overcome the situation of inequalities by focusing on how women and men can have meaningful participation in the program so that they will get benefit of the program.

  • To map out gender situation in the context of climate change and disaster risk reduction in three provinces, i.e. East Java, Southeast Sulawesi, and Maluku;
