Yayasan CARE Peduli-PALU Field Office, Jl. Zebra II No. 24 Kel. Birobuli Utara, Kec. Palu Selatan, PALU, Central Sulawesi, PALU, Indonesia
Company Description
Yayasan CARE Peduli (YCP)

CARE, like many other INGOs, has been putting in practice its institutional commitment to diversification within the confederation and to the localization of aid and strengthening partnerships with national entities.  In line with this, in July 2018 the Yayasan CARE Peduli (YCP) was established as the national CARE entity that will continue CARE’s presence and operations in Indonesia. CARE believes that this important step in the evolution of CARE’s presence in Indonesia will further enhance its more strategic role in both the development and the humanitarian fields.

As a national entity not only will YCP continue CARE’s activities, programs and presence, but that as a result YCP could also contribute more significantly in addressing and representing national development priorities both in Indonesia and globally as well.

As part of this organizational evolution, Yayasan CARE Peduli is seeking for committed, resourceful individuals who are passionate about poverty reduction, gender equality and social justice to spearhead YCP’s operations and advocacy on those priority issues.


A powerful 7.4-magnitude earthquake occurred on 28 September 2018, 17:02 in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The earthquake epicenters were located at 0.18 South and 119.85 East, 26 km North to the Donggala Regency, at a depth of 10 km (BMKG). Shortly after the earthquake, a tsunami reaching up to 6-meters high struck areas of Palu, Sigi, and Donggala. Certain points across the areas were also hit by liquefaction, a phenomenon when water-saturated soil, shaken by an earthquake, acts like a liquid, causing the ground to temporarily lose its ability to bear structures.

Yayasan CARE Peduli (YCP) and its partners have been on the ground responding to this emergency since the beginning of October 2018, carrying out projects in water and sanitation, shelter rehabilitation and aid distributions. Moving to the recovery phase, YCP is working to help restore economic livelihoods of those most affected by the disaster and aims to improve the variety and quality of livelihood options available in particular to women and marginalized groups by promoting community enterprise facilities. It is therefore essential that an inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction and Mitigation (DRRM) study is conducted in order to support targeted communities to incorporate preparedness, prevention and mitigation techniques against future hazards into their livelihoods’ activities.

YCP is seeking a consulting firm or entity to conduct a study on Disaster Risk Reduction and Mitigation (DRRM) in Central Sulawesi, and specifically in the affected communities in Sigi and Donggala districts and Palu City. The key objectives of the study are to map the hazards, risks, vulnerabilities and capacities for the prevention, preparedness and mitigation of disasters and to analyse and propose suitable community-based approaches to inclusive DRR with gender mainstreaming.

The proposed assessment will focus on analysis of the current DRRM approaches in Sigi, Donggala Districts and Palu City. It will also involve a review and analysis of policies that link to disaster risk reduction, including spatial planning, watershed management, environmental conservation and relevant government policies and local customs. The overall goal of the study is to inform a DRR-centred approach to the economic livelihoods recovery and resilience programming that will be implemented by YCP and partners.

Target Group

The target audience of the study are the local communities, government departments and stakeholders in Sigi and Donggala districts and Palu city. A more refined geographical area will be decided at the inception meeting based on secondary data and experience of the consulting firm.

The findings will be used to encourage communities and stakeholders to undertake activities which contribute to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) as well as climate change adaptation and mitigation, such as strengthening of terrestrial and coastal ecosystems/community enterprise, food and nutrition security.

Research Objectives

The assessment will involve conducting a field survey and interviews with stakeholders, local government and community. There are a number of key considerations to include in this analysis. The first is the diversity of the implementation area. Therefore, the analysis must be disaggregated:

1.    To reduce risks and strengthen the resilience and mitigation strategies of communities

2.    To develop adaptation and disaster reduction and mitigation strategies

3.    To identify related risks and adjust existing livelihood activities

4.    To identify the perspectives of the community and local government on DRR

Job Description
Scope of Work:

1.    Hazard, Vulnerability and Capacity (HVC) Mapping

a.    Map local hazards, vulnerabilities and capacities in the targeted area

b.    Provide Spatial Analysis on current HVC and DRR approaches, mechanisms and regulations in targeted areas along with land-use

c.    Analyse possible potential barriers and risks that communities and local governments may face and suggest possible mitigation measures

d.    Understand the coping mechanisms of the target communities and recommend alternative and innovative approaches and models on DRR and Mitigation

2.    Gender Mapping

While rapid urbanization and ongoing reforms have led to significant advances in gender equality and women’s empowerment, Indonesia continues to rank relatively poorly on the Gender Inequality Index (103 out of 152 countries).  According to gender analyses carried out by CARE Indonesia, key challenges hindering efforts to advance gender equality and the status of women include: discriminatory attitudes and gender roles that limit women’s ability to exercise their economic and labor rights, harmful traditional practices, the exploitation of women migrants, and Gender-Based Violence (GBV), with some provinces reporting the highest rates of domestic violence in the Asia-Pacific region.

Disasters may also worsen women’s vulnerability to poverty and the pre-existing inequalities they face, particularly in relation to livelihood opportunities, land ownership and inheritance, access to credit, wages and workplace benefits and violence. Under this study the consultant will:

a.    Report on the general characteristics of the relationships among men, women, girls, and boys along with roles and responsibilities of each of these gender groups in the targeted area related to the HVC mapping

b.    Analyse how the proposed disaster assistance or DRR activities may affect or be affected by the different roles and statuses of women, men, boys, and girls within the community, political sphere, workplace, and household; and

c.    Analyse how the anticipated results of the activities may affect women, men, boys, and girls differently and could help to reduce existing inequalities and avoid creating new inequalities.

d.    Provide recommendations for next steps to address gaps in gender equality and DRR over the longer term
