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.

Sendai 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.

The project ‘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.
