Through the support of Elrha, Start Network, and the Asia Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) on this partnership, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO), YAKKUM Emergency Unit (YEU) carried out “Community-Led Innovation Partnership” / CLIP. The Community-Led Innovation Partnership puts communities affected by crises at the heart of innovation efforts to support their resilience to crises. This project aims to increase accessibility, accountability, and inclusion of people with disabilities and older people in disaster preparedness and humanitarian response through supported community-led innovation. 


In implementing this activity, YEU launched IDEAKSI (ide inovasi aksi inklusi / idea innovation action inclusion) to seek inclusive innovation ideas in disaster management for local organizations with disabilities , older people, and other most at risk groups.


IDEAKSI is expected to be the door for inclusive innovation by local innovators in the context of disaster management in Indonesia using local wisdom and knowledge.


YEU is a work unit of YAKKUM (Christian Foundation for Public Health) which was established in 2001 with the mandate of inclusive and participatory disaster response and building community resilience through community-based disaster reduction and climate change adaptation practices.


YEU has a vision to ensure that disaster-affected communities can get the right to a dignified and sustainable life, through the synergy of humanitarian services and the development of a transformative community based on organization, accountability and quality.

 

WHAT IS CLIP?

 

CLIP “Community Led Innovation Partnership" - is a partnership effort to deliver community-based innovation. CLIP aims to improve accessibility, accountability, and inclusiveness for the most at risk groups in the emergency response and preparedness process through community-supported innovation.


The CLIP project is planned to have a 3 year duration, starting from April 2020 to March 2023 for the implementation of IDEAKSI 1.0 and continuing for IDEAKSI 2.0 from April 2023 to March 2025. This project is committed to supporting innovators at the community level to generate, test, and develop solutions to priority problems faced in the emergency response & disaster preparedness both at the local and national levels.

 

Through this program, it is hoped that there will be innovative solutions that enable the community, especially women, people with disabilities, older people, and other most at risk groups to participate and be actively involved in the process of disaster management and decision-making that affects their lives.
