AADMER Partnership Group (APG) with Humanitarian Forum Indonesia already held the first national consultation on 29th November 2012. The main result is to bring forward four issues of vulnerable groups which are women, children, elderly and people with disability. The second national consultation will dig out deeper the concept and collect best practices focused on those four issues.
The objective is still the same with the first consultation:
To gather civil society organisations working at the national and/or sub-national levels as well as representatives of vulnerable groups to discuss the CSO agenda and mechanisms for working together to strengthen disaster risk reduction and support the implementation of AADMER priorities.
There were 75 people attending this consultation, which are from: government, CSOs, UN Agencies. This consultation was opened by Rajan Gengaje as Country Director of UN-OCHA in Indonesia, Guru Naik as Country Director of ChildFund Indonesia, and Ir. Sugeng Triutomo as Deputy of Prevention and Preparedness of BNPB.
Aris Sustiyono from Yayasan Lestari Indonesia and Agung Hermawan from Yakkum Emergency Unit shared results of CSOs Leadership Training held on November 2012 in Bangkok.
Participants then divided into four groups: woman, child, older people, and people with disability. The points of discussions are focussed on AADMER implementation on vulnerable groups and mapping/making SWOT analysis regarding government-CSO partnership on the issue they were divided into.
These results will bring forward to CSO Regional Consultation on January 2013 in Bangkok. From the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs are expecting that this forum will have continuity.
