In December 2021, the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kamar Dagang dan Industri Indonesia, or KADIN) has joined the OCHA-UNDP Connecting Business initiative (CBi) as its newest Member Network. The partnership between CBi and KADIN will help strengthen private sector disaster preparedness, response and recovery in Indonesia.
Indonesia is highly exposed and vulnerable to natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, droughts, and landslides. Following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, one the deadliest disasters in history, Indonesia has heavily invested in disaster preparedness and resilience. But as climate change and rapid development increase the country’s disaster risks, collaboration between the private sector and other stakeholders is needed more than ever to integrate disaster resilience into development.
CBi will provide technical support to KADIN in risk profiling and business continuity planning for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and will help KADIN launch a Business Emergency Operations Centre. These activities align with the priorities announced by Indonesia as it assumes the G20 Presidency in 2022 as well as local needs identified by KADIN as priorities for this new collaboration.
