Disaster Risk Reduction Based Rehabilitation and Reconstruction (DR4)

What We Do

Moving forward from some major disasters which started with the 2004 Tsunami and Earthquake in Aceh Provinceand the 2006 Earthquake in Yogyakarta Special Province, the Government of Indonesia through its Coordinating Ministry of the National Agency for Disaster Management (Badan Nasional PenanggulanganBencana/BNPB) was propelled to shift and adopt pre-emptive measures on disaster risk reduction based on pre-disaster planning, mitigation and preparedness that entails putting comprehensive, cross-sectoral recovery policies, regulations and practices in place to address and mitigate the onset disasters

The DR4 project seeks to support BNPB in strengthening its Disaster Management capacity. The four main objectives of the project include as follows:

  • Provide support to the Government of Indonesia in Policy Framework through the drafting of guidelines on Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Provide support to the Government of Indonesia in building institutional systems on Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Strengthen the post-disaster assessment capacity through the drafting of guidelines on the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment/PDNA
  • Support the Government of Indonesia to implement Rehabilitation and Reconstruction based on Disaster Risk Reduction/DRR mechanism

Key Milestones


Policy Framework

The project has provided vital support to BNPB in producing various guidelines which have been applied to policies issued related to disaster risk reduction and mitigation strategies. The key documents produced include as follows:

  • General guidelines on the implementation of Post Disaster Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Standard Operating Procedure/SPO and Manual for Indonesia Multi Donor Fund Facility for Disaster Recovery/IMDFFDR
  • Guidelines on Post Disaster Needs Assessment/PDNA(KajianKebutuhanPascaBencana/JITU PB)
  • Guidelines on the formulation of Action Plan for Post-Disaster Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Technical Guidelines on the Procedure for the Application and Management of Social Aid Funding as a form of Grant
  • Guidelines on the Monitoring and Evaluation of Rehabilitation and Reconstruction efforts
  • Guidelines on Early Recovery
  • Training Modules Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Decision Support System for PDNAwhich is the data processing application that eases the data processing and analyzing of the Damage and Loss Assessment/DALA

Enhance BNPB’s Capacity in Inter-Ministerial/Institutional Collaboration System in Post Disaster Rehabilitation

Through assessment carried out to identify role and authority of each ministry/institution involved in post disaster recovery, DR4 project has helped to enhance the capacity of BNPB to assume its coordinating role in the process of post-disaster recovery and its funding concept. A report was produced from the assessment where data were gathered through literature review, interviews of relevant actors and also focus group discussions with related experts and stakeholders. The result of the exercise had contributed to the development of better coordination between line ministries/institutions for planning, funding and implementing process of post-disaster recovery.

Regional Disaster Mitigation Efforts

At the regional level, DR4 provided full support to several areas which were affected by natural disasters that include West Java Province on 2 September 2009 having affected by a 7.3 Richter Scale Earthquake and West Sumatra Province which was devastated by another Earthquake in 30 September 2009. The key achievements under West Java Earthquake Recovery (WJEQ) include as follows:

  • Government assisted with Information Management using Geographical Information System (GIS)and Management Information System (MIS) for post disaster recovery. Mapped and created the 3W (Who Does What and Where) Matrix for the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction efforts
  • Support provided to coordinate recovery efforts for development actors
  • Recovery Needs Assessment conducted to feed into the Action Plan for the Disaster Rehabilitation and Reconstruction.

Meanwhile, the key achievements under Sumatra Earthquake (RISE) Project include as follows:

  • Technical support provided to the government to carry out the PDNA and the formulation of Action Plan
  • Technical support provided to the Provincial Development Planning Agency (BadanPerencanaan Pembangunan Daerah/Bappeda)in Padang and Padang Pariaman districts to manage aid funds, information management, monitoring and evaluation and spatial planning.
