Crisis Prevention and Recovery
Indonesia is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. Natural disasters threaten human development and undermine the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Social conflict is another serious development impediment. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) therefore gives top priority to supporting Indonesia’s crisis prevention and recovery efforts.
UNDP is supporting Indonesia’s long-term peace and stability through three key focus areas: (1) disaster risk reduction, (2) peace through development (3) disaster recovery.
Disaster Risk Reduction
Measures to protect and prepare communities living in Indonesia’s disaster-prone areas, as well as assistance to government capacity to respond to an emergency, can help to significantly reduce risk in the event of disaster and foster a culture of safety. UNDP is providing support to community preparation and planning, as well as policy advice and assistance to the Government’s development of disaster risk reduction legislation.

Peace Through Development
Peace Through Development is UNDP’s programme to reduce potential conflict in Indonesia and to enhance post-conflict recovery, focusing on the provinces of Maluku, North Maluku and Central Sulawesi. The programme aims to strengthen governance capacity to support long-term conflict prevention, recovery and peace building. Peace Through Development is also working to improve livelihoods and increase economic opportunities in conflict-affected areas.
The Peace Through Development programme aims to:
(a) Aceh and North Sumatra
