Abstract


RDI researcher studies social protection in the context of increasing the resilience of individual, family and community. Some RDI researchers have been involved in projects related to social protection and disaster risks in West Java Province (Indramayu and Cianjur), Yogyakarta Province (Mt. Merapi) and NTT Province (Sumba and Belu). As a country, Indonesia has had a number of social protection schemes (see Sagala et al 2016). Social protection has been introduced in some disaster prone area to reduce the vulnerability of the people. Social protection and disaster risk reduction have overlapping targets, among others, to reduce the risks faced by vulnerable group (especially children), to tackle the impact of disaster, and seek to build resilience against future shocks and stresses on livelihoods. While both social protection and disaster risk reduction are commonly designed for short term program, they have potentials to sustain long term child and family resilience. This research looks at three pillars of resilience to better understand the ways social protection (SP), child protection (CP) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) can be integrated, and the interaction between them.
