About Us


The SIAP SIAGA Program is the Australia-Indonesia Partnership on Disaster Risk Management that aims to improve Indonesia’s ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from rapid and slow onset disasters in Indonesia and strengthen cooperation between Australia and Indonesia on humanitarian action in the Indo-Pacific region. This five-year program is aligned with the priorities of Indonesia‚Äôs Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2020-2024 and the Australian Government Humanitarian Strategy (2016).

In its implementation, SIAP SIAGA Program works closely with the National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB), Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), provincial and district/city governments, as well as Indonesian civil society. The program is funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and managed by Palladium Pty Ltd.


The complexity of disaster management in a large and decentralized country like Indonesia requires a measured but adaptive approach that takes into account and is able to rapidly respond to recognized factors that are unique to Indonesia. SIAP SIAGA believes that disaster management issues need to be viewed in their entirety through a systems-based approach, meaning addressing system-wide challenges rather than focusing on individual institutions.

SIAP SIAGA uses a Problem-Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) approach, as a tool of adaptive management, to ensure that its programmes and activities are responsive to emerging issues and contextual developments. Using this approach, SIAP SIAGA works with partners at national and subnational levels to identify bottlenecks in disaster management systems at various government and community levels and design solutions to improve the effectiveness of disaster management services.
