News & Publicationon March 27, 2019

29 April – 3 May 2019, Yogyakarta

Indonesia is a country which faces different natural hazards, as it has been internationally recognized to be a disaster-prone area. Therefore, Indonesian humanitarian responders, as well as the different agencies working in the field, should have a minimum knowledge and background about the humanitarian action sector in order to follow the humanitarian principles. Furthermore, personnel should have a background in how do the different organizations inter-relate, internally and externally.

Even if the humanitarian  responders been in disaster-affected areas will need a refresher training to strengthen the capacity and network with other responders. One of the trainings that RedR Indonesia  is going to organize regularly is a 5 days foundational humanitarian practice training which  focus in  the following topics:

  • Disaster Terminology and Indonesia’s Disaster Context
  • International, Regional and National legal Framework for Disaster Response
  • Humanitarian Actors and their Mandates
  • Humanitarian Motivations and Code of Conduct
  • Accountability and Standards
  • Cross-cutting Themes
  • Integrating protection, disability and gender
  • Emergency needs assessment
  • Project Management Cycle in Emergencies
  • Humanitarian Donors, Funding and Partnerships
  • Humanitarian Logistics, Supply Chain Management Cash-based assistance
  • Personal well-being and team security in emergencies
  • Humanitarian Coordination in Indonesia
  • Information Management and Dissemination in Disasters
  • Changing paradigms in Disaster Management
  • One day practical training on specific sectoral topics in: Education in Emergency, Cluster Coordination and WASH.

Attendants to these 5 days training are expected to learn about different humanitarian practices, especially in relation with the Indonesian context. As participants are expected to have minimum experience in the field, these trainings are not only going to be based in theories, but also in lessons learned from the field. Therefore, humanitarian personnel attending these trainings will acquire a more holistic approach and hopefully improved practices in order to deliver a more effective and efficient aid in an individual as well as organizational level.
