Oxfam Indonesia has been working with local partner organisation Koslata to change attitudes which leave people vulnerable to disaster and to assist the community of Jenggala with disaster risk reduction (DRR). The aim of DRR activities is to help the community to better prepare for floods and landslides and to reduce the negative impacts of such hazards. The programme has sought to engage women in DRR activities both because women’s participation enables them to benefit from DRR activities, manage their livelihoods and reduce food insecurities and because women’s exclusion deprives the projects of vital skills, knowledge and capabilities which the women possess.
