Indonesia Development of the National Disaster Response Framework (Design and Implementation)
The request from the Government of Indonesia for NZ assistance to develop an umbrella framework over the Indonesian disaster management arrangements originated in 2010. Technical discussions focussed on the need for a national coordination framework across sectors and agencies involved in preparing for and responding to disasters. This was identified as being a critical gap in the new institutional arrangements for managing disasters in Indonesia.
The National Disaster Response Framework (NDRF) Development Activity has been implemented through a partnership between the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana (BNPB), Indonesia’s National Disaster Management Authority.
The Activity focused on the development and implementation of the NDRF. Framework is designed to be Indonesia’s primary response document and aims to clarify roles, responsibilities, and organization of response in a disaster. It is the unifying document for Indonesia’s National Disaster Management System, which sets the strategy and doctrine for how all stakeholders build, sustain, and deliver the response core capabilities identified in the National Disaster Management Goal, in an integrated manner.
