Humanitarian crises, emergency preparedness and response: the role of business and the private sector Indonesia case study

This paper addresses the role of the private sector in humanitarian action in Indonesia and broad patters of engagement between the humanitarian and the private sectors. In analysing these issues, the paper identifies the barriers to, and opportunities for, more systematic engagement between humanitarian actors and the private sector, and puts forward practical measures to make collaboration more consistent and successful. The study finds there is a significant potential for the private sector to engage more strategically and systematically in disaster issues, as a partner with the government and with humanitarian actors and as an actor in its own right. The opportunities presented are designed to help lay the groundwork for making a clear and compelling business case for the private sector’s engagement in humanitarian action.
