Disaster Resilient Village policy in Indonesia
Indonesia is a disaster prone nation. To protect the community from the losses caused by disasters the government of Indonesia declared a Disaster Resilient Village Policy - (DRV Policy) 2012, in line with Hygo-frame work of action with the objective to make strong base for community resilience to any disaster. This disaster resilient policy was implemented in the four villages namely Mulyodadi, Poncosari, Wonolelo and Gadingsari in Bantul District.
Factors for effective Implementation of DRV policy
A study conducted on the effect of implementation of DRV policy finds that these villages have varied achievement on the six components (Legislation, Planning: Institutional arrangement, Funding, Capacity building and Implementation of disaster management) of resilient villages. The study points out that the effective implementation of DRV policy depends upon several factors like disaster experience, human resources and cooperation among stakeholders. It concludes that the community with the experience of disaster has more inclination for the future preparedness. Human resource, that is, People participation in policy making, capacity building, risk and vulnerability analysis, preparing for disaster and organizing resources to reduce vulnerability and risks is important factor for making DRV policy successful. Cooperation among stakeholders too is important factor.
