Indonesia is located in one of the world's most disaster-prone regions, with frequent calamities such as tropical storms, floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

National authorities' management capacity has substantially improved in recent years but international assistance is sometimes still required.

The European Commission has made available € 136 million in humanitarian aid to help survivors of natural and human-made crises since 1995. This includes funding for preparedness measures through its Disaster Preparedness Programme (DIPECHO).
