  1. Background

Since last year, ADRA has implemented an anticipatory action program (forecast-based finance for anticipatory action) in four districts, namely Kupang (NTT), Bima (NTB), Sigi (Central Sulawesi) and Pandeglang (Banten). The four districts where the FFACT project has been implemented have been known as disaster-prone areas. The results of the disaster risk assessment by BNPB in 2022 show that Pandeglang Regency and Kupang Regency are high-risk areas for disasters. Meanwhile, Sigi Regency and Bima Regency are moderate-risk areas.

This program, funded by ADRA Germany and Aktion Deutschland Hilf, has three objectives, 1). Increase public awareness regarding early warning for early action, and link key stakeholders including critical service providers at the sub-national level with effective early warning systems; 2). Facilitate the development of protocols and policies to support anticipatory action and possible activation of emergency alerts at the sub-national level and testing through real event scenarios; 3). Participate in the regional early warning system process to activate emergency alerts and to capture lessons learned that will be promoted through the global ADRA network and other platforms.

One important component in implementing this program is community involvement in communicating disaster risks to the immediate environment in their community and the wider community. Community engagement in communicating this risk can be done at all stages of disaster management. However, in the context of this anticipatory action program, the engagement that is emphasized is mainly related to the early warning system and early anticipatory action against disasters.

Community engagement is a key factor in the risk communication framework. On many occasions, risks have been misunderstood by the public, when there has been insufficient involvement from providers or users. Risk communication also relies heavily on several other elements in the risk framework. Perception, awareness, and interpretation of risk will influence how successful risk communication is carried out. In some cases, the failure of early warning systems at the community level is caused by several of the elements above that are not in sync between what the information provider and the information user want.

As part of its efforts to obtain information to support the implementation needs of the FFACT project, ADRA will conduct a study on risk communication and community engagement in four districts and requires a consultant to conduct this study.

  1. The purpose of the RCCE Study

This study aims to find out how risk communication is applied in anticipating various disaster risks and how the community is engaged in implementing risk communication strategies. Specifically, this study wants to get a more complete picture regarding the following aspects:

  • To obtain an overview of how risk communication is practiced in early warning and disaster anticipation systems;
  • to obtain an overview of appropriate communication channels and media for communicating disaster risks;
  • Identify the role and contribution of communities in disseminating messages about disaster risk;
  • Identify forms of institutionalization of risk communication including support for existing policies or regulations;
  • Identify existing gaps in the delivery of disaster risk communication and action options to address these gaps;
  • Obtain an overview of disaster risk communication materials that have a perspective on groups with special needs (people with disabilities).
  1. Scope of study
    • Risk communication in the context of this study is limited to those related to types of hazards that occur gradually (slow on set), and does not consider risk communication related to types of hazards that occur quickly and suddenly (sudden on set).
    • Study location; Four regencies as The FFACT project has been implemented by ADRA Indonesia in Bima Regency (NTB Province), Kupang Regency (NTT Province), Sigi Regency (Central Sulawesi Province), and Pandeglang Regency (Banten Province).

Yayasan ADRA Indonesia is humanitarian organization and belongs to the worldwide ADRA network, comprised of more than 120 supporting and implementing country offices. The mission of the agency is to serve humanity so all may live as God intended. ADRA Indonesia aims to build a positive working environment through Justice, Compassion and Love as its main values. ADRA Indonesia has been working in Indonesia since 1981 and registered as a local Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in 1991. ADRA’s five core sectors include livelihood, mother and child health, WASH and has more than 20 years of experience on disaster response across Indonesia.  

The LEAF project intends to build on the foundation laid and progress made during REAF project (Recovery for Earthquake-Affected Farmers) implemented in 2019-2021. The previous REAF project helped 535 earthquake affected families to recover from the disaster impacts, they able to improve their food security through improved crop and livestock production and engagement in off-farm business opportunities. The LEAF project will provide further assistance to make a sustainable impact on food security, as COVID-19 pandemic and recurrent floods during the REAF project period constrained the participants’ ability to recover fully and sustain the progress made during the project period. 

Therefore, agriculture or livestock-based livelihoods are the viable options for them. REAF project has already laid a ground and future project can capitalize on those experiences/learnings to enhance skills and knowledge of people. Corn has emerged as a major crop after the decline of rice. However, people are not getting much income from vegetable although it may have contributed greatly to meet nutritional needs. Similarly, cocoa rehabilitation work has started to pay back.  If the approach of farmer field school that was started in REAF project is strengthened by further enhancing the capacity of lead farmers/facilitator (not only in technical skills but also to facilitate learning sessions with farmers), project can make a significant difference.

  • Animal diseases and problem with feed/fodder were the major issues in livestock and people are not able to make much from livestock although more than 50% HHs are engaged in livestock rearing. Animal Health Workers developed in REAF project had limited skills to provide management advices and basic veterinary services. There is an opportunity to enhance their capacity by partnering with Department of Livestock. This could be complemented with the promotion of nutritious fodder/forage and local food preparation techniques in FFS. In order to reduce dependence on chemical fertilizers, promote sustainable agriculture and increase local food availability, the integration of livestock will be one of the important components in this project. Some farmer in Jonooge and Bangga have demonstrated that livestock not only provide food and income but also able to support agriculture by using livestock manure as organic fertilizer.

AHWs developed during the REAF project will be further screened based on their capacity and provided additional training to enhance their skills to work as local resource persons in animal management. The 6 days training package will be based on Heifer AHW training module. It will be discussed, revised if needed and endorsed by Department of Livestock and the district government. 20 (5 from each village) participants will be selected/re-selected in participatory approach through community engagement for this training.  We expect that about 80% of these trained AHWs will be active to provide services. 

 6-days training will cover following topics:

  1. Nutritious fodder and forage for animal and ways to promote those species locally.
  2. Livestock cage/shed management
  3. Breed management including inbreeding control, handling the new born animals, handling abnormal births
  4. Identifying disease using the vital signs and how to use the tools
  5. Types of animal diseases commonly occur, common symptoms. Maior diseased, their prevention & treatment
  6. Internal and external parasites of animals and treatment methods
  7. Types of drugs for animal and how they work for sick animals, types of traditional plants for treatment and practice to making the traditional medicine.
  8. Proper recording system for herd management .
  9. AHW roles, principles and discussion the plan for sustainability of AHW services in the community
  10. Government policies which is relevant and will support the sustainability of AHW.

Similar to the FFS sessions in crops, AHWs will conduct FFS in livestock. About 20-25 persons will come together to learn on livestock management practices, adopting the principle of FFS. The project team will design and arrange the simple modules for AHWs, prepare the tools and equipment for the trainings, and provide assistance to AHWs to lead participatory discussions during training. Basic management of livestock management will be focused on goat and pig, and about 6 monthly FFS learning sessions will be organized on following topics.

  1. Discussion on existing livestock practices, constraints, plan and learning priorities
  2. Shed management. The AHWs will facilitate the participants to learn from existing shed management in their village, including the demonstration shed available from previous REAF project. Sharing experience, good practices and challenges from the farmers will enrich the training process and to find the cost effective, environmentally friendly and gender sensitive.
  3. Rearing practices: The training will help to achieve the objective by providing them more knowledge and practices on, such as morphology of goat/pig, feeding habit, parturition, maturity, kids rearing, maintaining environment etc. The training will be provided as per particular schedule depending upon the season.
  4. Breed management: The training will provide knowledge on, such as selection of female and male goat/pigs, breeding season, materials and technologies used, and lactation. A breeding buck for each group will also be supported for which the community will bear the cost of insurance, feed, shed and maintenance. Farmers will also be encouraged to share a part of the cost to acquire a breeding buck so that they develop ownership. Farmer groups will be facilitated to create rules and regulations to manage the breeding buck, including assigning a farmer to raise it, service charge, a benefit sharing mechanism, and a system of replacing buck to check inbreeding.
  5. Management of internal and external parasites in animals: Farmers will learn about the internal and external parasites and apply deworming and drenching on some animals and compare with control animal to experience the difference.
  6. Animal disease management: Farmers will learn about the common symptoms of diseases and prevention measures

At the end of FFS cycles, farmers will reflect the FFS learning and develop future plan. A total of 40 FFS learning cycles is planned in livestock, 8 in Yr 1, 16 in Yr 2 and 16 in Yr 3. The plan is to train all the 450 HHs engaged in livestock at least once during the project period.
