Indonesia Rapid Gender Assessment in Response to COVID-19

Following the first reported COVID-19 case in Indonesia, Yayasan CARE Peduli (YCP) had immediately started to prepare its response package to support communities in areas where it operates. Given the mobility restriction, it had been quite challenging to prepare the response package particularly in preceding the response with much more detailed field-based needs assessment. This Rapid Gender Assessment (RGA) was prepared almost simultaneously with the delivery of the first stage of the response. While it has been limited in its use for the first stage response, it is intended to guide YCP’s next stage of response which will be aimed at mitigating the social economic impact of COVID-19, emphasizing the needs of women and access to the support. This RGA will serve as the basis for further in-depth study or assessment to support detailed design of the support schemes and other assessments that other development partners are planning to undertake.
Information on the local situation and needs were gathered from the projects’ database and information from the local governments and partners. Therefore, the first stage of YCP’s response consist of preventive and protective measures from the virus transmission which was aimed at the communities in general.
Specifically, the RGA has the following objectives:
1. To analyze the impact of COVID-19 and the needs of the communities especially the vulnerable groups such as women and children, the elderlies, people with disabilities and other vulnerabilities;
2. To inform the design of COVID-19 response based on the identified needs of the different groups, focusing on: (i) paid and unpaid productive works; (ii) gender relations and decision-making process; (iii) basic services; (iv) safety and security with respect to gender-based violence; (v) influence of faith and religion; (vi) access to information and technology; (vii) WASH and livelihood; and (viii) child protection and education.

CARE Rapid Gender Analysis Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami Indonesia Version 2

The Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) provides information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis by examining their roles and their relationships and the implications of these during and in the aftermath of a crisis and during displacement. As the response is affected by the aftershocks and the continued immediate response, search and rescue and evacuation, the first version of this RGA, shared on 9 October, was intended to provide an initial foundational analysis of gender dynamics, drawing on pre-crisis information and the immediate rapid survey conducted by CARE Indonesia Country Office staff. This second version includes additional primary data to strengthen the report, and reflect the realities as the response continues and evolves. Read More...

CARE Rapid Gender analysis – Serang & Pandeglang districts, Sunda Strait Tsunami, Indonesia December 25 – 31, 2018

A Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) helps understand pre-existing power dynamics between women and men as well as existing vulnerabilities women, men, boys and girls were facing; it provide information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of these groups in a crisis, power dynamics between different gender/age groups and pre-existing vulnerabilities and practical programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girls and to ensure we ‘do no harm’.

CARE International in Indonesia (CII) is present in Serang town (inland) and Serang Regency among the most impacted area with an ongoing WASH in schools project implemented jointly by CARE and partner Bina Masyarakat Peduli (BMP). There is no information about potential damage on the schools or infrastructure supported by CARE yet but two of the schools for replication are in affected areas. RGAs were conducted in Sulawesi and Lombok to ensure the responses integrated gender dimensions from the very beginning.

CARE Rapid Gender Analysis Lombok Earthquakes Indonesia

A Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) provides information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis by examining their roles and their relationships, and the implications of these during displacement. As the response is affected by the aftershocks and the continued immediate response and evacuation, this document is intended to provide an initial foundational analysis of gender dynamics, drawing on pre crisis information and the immediate rapid survey conducted by country office staff. As the response continues and evolves, additional information, observation and data will help to expand the detail, and provide more nuanced recommendations.

The objectives of this RGA, therefore, were to better understand how women, men, girls and boys are affected by the earthquakes, the impact of the earthquakes on gender dynamics, and emerging opportunities to provide an emergency response that meets the differing needs and vulnerabilities of women, men, boys and girls.

The WAS program scheme is originally conceptualized in 2011 by a national food company with a non-government organization as the local partner. Since 2016, CARE is responsible as the local partner for the initiation or continuation of Warung Anak Sehat in 350 schools across 4 different locations in Indonesia. In several areas, Warung Anak Sehat was first initiated by other organization and then continued by CARE. The WAS scheme consists of establishment of food kiosks which provides healthy food inside or outside schools. These kiosks are set up and run by vendors (usually female) who are provided with skills, tools and equipment. [27 pages] Read More...

Joint Evaluation of Yogyakarta Earthquake Response

114-page joint evaluation from CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Save the Children (SC), and World Vision Indonesia (WVI) on their separate responses to the Yogyakarta earthquake. Although the agencies worked independently of each other, it was felt that a joint evaluation (JE) of the response would demonstrate greater accountability and the results would be taken more seriously. The objectives of the JE were to assess individual agencies on: • The impacts of their responses and identify promising practices and indicators on impact measurement. • The appropriateness of agency responses.• Whether the responses had helped the recovery of people and communities. • The level of agency accountability to local people. • Organisational preparedness to respond to emergencies Read More...
