During this reporting period, the Japanese Red Cross and German Red Cross completed their Yogyakarta earthquake recovery programmes and closed their programme offices. A comprehensive external evaluation of the Japanese Red Cross programme has been completed but the final evaluation report in English will not be available until the end of October.
The Danish Red Cross-managed integrated community-based risk reduction (ICBDRR) programme funded by the International Federation is the only remaining programme activity in Yogyakarta. This programme started in the second half of 2007 with the implementation of International Federation community organized and -based programme activities. The programme worked with PMI branches in five districts in Yogyakarta province and one district, Klaten, in Central Java province. Since the programme start-up, PMI Central Java has requested the addition of five more of its branches (Boyolali, Magelang, Temanggung, Karanganyar and Purworejo) in the programme. To accommodate the expansion of the programme a revised budget of CHF 3,700,000 has been agreed between the International Federation, Danish Red Cross and PMI. In addition, the programme period has been extended to December 2010 to allow for implementation of the complete programme cycle in the five new districts.
A peer review of accountability to disaster affected communities in the International Federation Yogyakarta programme was undertaken in April and May 2009 as part of the Steering Committee for Humanitarian Response (SCHR) global review. Global findings will be published in the last quarter of 2009.
The unspent balance of CHF 4.5 million as a result of the budget revision as mentioned in Operations Update no. 22, has now been reduced to CHF1.2 million following discussions with donors, an amount less than 5 per cent of the total programme budget. This amount will now be reallocated to the Indonesia Country Plan 2010-2011.
