    ASP is a component of the “Social Protection Programme” (SPP) in Indonesia lead by for Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project focuses on the extension of social protection, particularly for poor and vulnerable population groups, in order to reduce the consequences of extreme weather events and natural hazards. The aim of ASP contributes to the technical foundations of the SPP focuses on three main outputs:

    1) Risk analysis, prevention and reduction plans, along with mechanism for risk transfers,

    2) Options for expanding and linking Disaster Risk Management (DRM) with existing social programs, and

    3) Cost calculations of various financing options and instruments, which includes climate risk insurance.

    MCII and UNU-EHS will be particularly responsible for climate and disaster risk, exposure and vulnerability assessments, including reviews of existing mechanisms and the subsequent identification of protection gaps. Subsequently they will support the identification of potential options and solutions for adaptive social protection in Indonesia and the establishment of an ASP Roadmap.
