SIAP SIAGA Supports BNPB in Developing Concept of a Sustainable Roadmap in Gender Mainstreaming
Indonesia has a comprehensive gender mainstreaming framework, particularly in the field of disaster management. The Presidential Instruction No. 9 of 2000 on Gender Mainstreaming in National Development mandates that all ministries/institutions and local governments carry out gender mainstreaming in planning, preparation, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation for national development policies and programs.
Meanwhile, the National Mid Term Development Plan 2020-2024 which was passed through Presidential Regulation No. 18 of 2020, Indonesia has clearly applied gender mainstreaming as an integrated aspect throughout the development sector, including within the framework of disaster management.
The National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) has established regulations on gender mainstreaming in disaster management through BNPB Head Regulation No. 13 of 2014 on Gender Mainstreaming. This regulation provides guidelines for the implementation of Gender Responsive Planning and Budgeting (PPRG) in the scope of disaster management, as well as gender mainstreaming at the pre-disaster, disaster emergency, and post-disaster phases. Meanwhile, BNPB Head Regulation No. 7 of 2012 on Indonesia’s Disaster Data and Information Management Guidelines and Technical Instructions for Data Collection and Disaster Information provide guidelines in the management of disaggregated data.
In line with these regulations and policies, SIAP SIAGA supported BNPB to develop a concept for a sustainable “Roadmap for Gender Mainstreaming in BNPB System 2021-2024”, with the aim of ensuring effective implementation of gender mainstreaming in Disaster Management. The roadmap also benefited from inputs from various related institutions. The Roadmap for Gender Mainstreaming in BNPB is designed to provide an inclusive approach to development priorities and is an integral part of the implementation of the gender mainstreaming program. Furthermore, it will be used as a directive guideline for all elements of the BNPB organization.
The roadmap was created in response to the readiness evaluation of the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection in 2020 based on seven gender mainstreaming prerequisites through the Parhita Ekapraya Award Application (APE). These are: 1) commitment, 2) policy, 3) institutionalization, 3) human resources and budget, 5) data, information systems, and KIE, 6) guidelines and methods, and 7) community participation.
Moreover, the roadmap also responds to the key components of gender mainstreaming, based on the National Disaster Management Plan (RENAS PB), namely political will and institutional structure and mechanisms. These structures and mechanisms include adequate resources, gender-disaggregated information, and data systems, analytical tools for planning, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation, and participation of civil society organizations.
This roadmap is a key instrument to ensure the sustainability of results within the BNPB system and to ensure that implementation of disaster management in Indonesia is carried out based on the principles of justice and women’s civil rights.
