The Kelud joint programme is a joint initiative of the Government of Indonesia and the key UN Agencies (FAO and UNDP) in supporting post-disaster recovery of the regions affected by the 2014 Kelud volcanic eruptions in East Java Province and several districts in Central Java and Yogyakarta. In line with the United Nations Partnerships Development Framework (UNPDF) and the strategic goals of the Government of Indonesia’s Medium Term Development Plan (RPJMN), the joint programme is designed to contribute to the following outcome: Improved livelihoods of communities affected by the Mount Kelud eruption and strengthen the capacity of GOI national and local government agencies to coordinate and implement gender sensitive, pre and post disaster recovery planning processes and practices based on disaster risk reduction principles.


In view of the preliminary results of the ERNA and PDNA on Mt. Kelud disaster, the UN Window of the Indonesia Multi-Donor Fund Facility for Disaster Recovery proposes to support local governments and the affected communities to recover from the disaster. The UN Window will build on the results of the assessments that have been undertaken and its validation and updating exercise within the first two months to be articulated by an inception report. Based on the needs and required support identified during the first two months inception phase, an implementation phase of 12 months will follow that will focus on (1) Strengthening capacities of national and local authorities to coordinate post-disaster early recovery and recovery measures; (2) Strengthening capacities of national and local authorities to plan and implement post-disaster recovery measures; (3) Restoring livelihoods and developing economic opportunities of the affected population; and (4) Ensuring risk-reduction principles are incorporated in recovery measures. These outputs will be produced through a number of key initiatives that are aimed at facilitating livelihoods recovery, strengthening local government capacity, and improving community resilience.


The proposed activities cover upstream work at the national level to the downstream work at the village level. The governance support will aim at strengthening the capacities of the provincial government of East Java and the district governments of Kediri, Blitar, and Malang. The intended results and lessons learned from the project intervention/implementation will be brought up to the national level to strengthen the national policy and regulations related to post-disaster recovery and  the national repository of best practices to be  shared with other regions in the country. The lessons learned from the other IMDFF-DR -supported project in Mount Merapi will be used as a reference for the response in Mount Kelud.


The damages to production assets have disrupted the livelihoods of the affected families, causing a change in amount of earnings and contribution roles within households, i.e. among husbands, wives, and children. This condition has worsened in some heavily-affected areas, where most of the victims were men, forcing women to become either the new breadwinners or to earn more. There are specific interventions designed to address the livelihoods issues with a view to minimize burden on women and children.


The proposed initiative will be directly implemented by FAO and UNDP under the guidance of BNPB and the other Project Board Members at the national level and BPBD (s) at the local provincial and district levels. The Kelud joint programme will be delivered in the field within a twelve month period from 2014 to 2015. Sustainability is an essential element that the project will foster through the following measures. In the short term, the project will train relevant individuals and working units from the local government and put together comprehensive plans for this purpose. In the medium term, the project will support BPBD(s) to develop strategies to enhance their organizational processes, by drafting and enacting Special Operating Procedures (SOPs) to guide recovery coordination at the local level.
