Task Approach

In order to achieve its objectives, in its implementation APIK consists of five task components as follow:  

  • Task 1: Integration of Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction into Policy and Coordination

Under Task 1, APIK will apply a development-first adaptation strategy to heighten national  government awareness of the risks posed to critical development goals by climate change and hydro-meteorological disasters and to strengthen the government’s response by mainstreaming climate change adaptation (CCA)/ disaster risk reduction (DRR) tools and approaches. More specifically, APIK will work with and through the Secretariat of Climate Change Adaptation National Action Plan (RAN API) and the Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) to elevate the visibility of the RAN API and equip key line ministries to support its implementation. The Project will also work with BNPB and Planas PRB to accelerate understanding of climate/weather issues and their integration into the CCA DRR agenda, and engage with the Indonesia Climate Alliance (ICA), other Non Governemnt Organizations that are concerned on climate adaptation issues, and intra-governmental working groups to strengthen horizontal CCA and DRR coordination and share lessons learned from Task 1 activities between government ministries and departments. 

  • Task 2: Enhance Subnational Government and Community Resilience to Climate Change and Weather-related Natural Disasters

​Under Task 2 APIK will focus on local government and community capacity building, using entry-points such as local government working groups and community-based vulnerability mapping to convene stakeholders and facilitate planning and actions that strengthen landscape, socioeconomic, and institutional resilience. Importantly, place-based interventions under Task 2 are linked to and enabled by a strengthened national enabling environment (Task 1), relevant climate and disaster information(Task 3), and the engagement of the private sector around shared risks (Task 4). 

  • Task 3: Strengthen Targeted Climate and Weather Information Services (CWI)

Task 3 focuses on the collection, packaging, and dissemination of climate and weather information (CWI) services. Better climate and weather information systems are  fundamental to fostering place-based resilience across the archipelago, saving lives in the near term (i.e. disaster risk reduction) while supporting better planning and public investment in the medium to long term (i.e. climate change adaptation). Critically, improved information is not an end in and of itself, but must be linked to institutional capacity building (Task 1 and Task 2), pro-poor programming for sustainable livelihoods (Task 2 and Task 4), and trans-boundary ecosystem management (Task 2). 

  • Task 4: Awareness and Capacity Development for the Private Sector

APIK’s Task 4 strategy emphasizes the engagement and mobilization of business associations and business networks around shared risks in key economic sectors, such as the fishing industry in the Maluku Islands or cocoa and rice production in SE Sulawesi. Specifically, APIK will support business participation in developing strategies and investments that strengthen local resilience to climate and disaster risks as well as facilitate business access to improved climate and weather information services. In addition, the Project will use the Resilience Fund to encourage private sector involvement in projects and in developing products, technologies, and processes that communities and households can use to strengthen local climate resilience.

  • Task 5: Project Coordination and Documentation

Task 5 emphasizes the capturing and sharing of CCA/DRR successes as well as the importance of coordination between the many organizations active in the climate change and disaster preparedness sectors, including GOI counterparts, the broader donor community, and other USAID projects. Towards this end, the APIK organizes meetings, documents best practices, and shares lessons learned and successful CCA and DRR implementation models drawn from its experience.
