Climate change adapation in Indonesia

The Indonesian Red Cross (Palang Merah Indonesia, PMI) is working with communities to help them understand the basic science of climate change and use this knowledge to adapt to the consequent changing weather and nature of disasters. PMI has listened to local concerns and as a result supports a community based risk reduction initiative to help people adapt – in their current habitat – to global warming. The approach is comprehensive with the provision of clean drinking water, prevention of flooding, landslides, erosion, coastal abrasion; and construction of earthquake-resistant houses all being addressed, as well as programmes targeting issues such as multi-hazards, livelihoods, volunteer community participation and gender. Published in 2009.
