Building Safe & Resilient Communities (BSRC) Program Final Evaluation Consultancy
Date of issue: 24 – 02 - 2019
Closing date: 05 – 03 - 2019
Duty station: INDONESIA
Consultancy Purpose
Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) is a small archipelago located in the Flores sea, and is identified as one of the poorest and most disaster prone provinces in Indonesia. Communities are vulnerable to the severe impacts of crop or harvest failures on health and livelihoods as a result of these disasters. In addition, the region experiences high levels of maternal and child mortality, malnourishment, diabetes, diarrhoeal and vector borne diseases, with Dengue and Malaria endemic in some remote communities.
This project implemented by Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI) targets four disaster prone districts within Nusa Tenggara Timur (Belu, Manggerai, Alor and Kota Kupang), building local community capacity to establish and sustain integrated, community led disaster and health resilience. The project is building Indonesia Red Cross’ branch capacity in disaster preparedness and response, and supporting community resilience by empowering villages to identify their vulnerabilities and capacities and prioritise essential preparatory community actions. The project is also linking trained village volunteers and the local PMI branch with government health infrastructure to deliver MCH information and increase access to services for women and their children.
Disability mainstreaming is also a focus for the program, seeking to up-skill staff and volunteers to promote the meaningful involvement of PLWD in Red Cross activities in NTT, including participation and leadership in project activity design and implementation.
The project began in July 2016 and will run for a minimum of three years. Risk Reduction Plans have now been approved and hazard mitigation activities have commenced, alongside training of volunteers to roll out health awareness sessions and augment the support provided by local maternal and child health clinics.
The project spans a total of 12 communities across 4 districts (4 focusing on Health, 5 on DM, and 3 combining Health and DM):
  • Alor: Kolana (DM), Kodipil (DM), WolWal (H&DM)
  • Belu: Rafae (DM), Sarabao (H&DM), Fatuketi (DM), Renrua (H)
  • Kupang: Naoini (H)
  • Manggarai: Ndehes (H), Gapong (H&DM), Ranaka (DM), Poco (DM)
