Consultant to support development of BNPB’s Kota Tangguh guidelines

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.
At the national level, APIK provides technical assistance to national level ministries to strengthen their understanding of climate change and the impact of weather-related natural disasters, and to mainstream tools and approaches that facilitate the systematic consideration of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in their core planning, budgeting, and operations. Given the cross-cutting nature of CCA/DRR, APIK works with economy-wide agencies—such as the Ministry of Planning (BAPPENAS) and the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB)—as well as technical ministries such as  Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR),  Public Works and Public Housing (PUPERA), Agrarian and Spatial Planning, and Agriculture (Kementan).
