This report covers the period 1 January to 31 December 2011.
Programme outcome: The purpose of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) programme is to support the institutional capacity building of Indonesian Red Cross (Palang Merah Indonesia/PMI) and facilitate a coordinated approach from the Movement in supporting PMI’s programmes and organizational development.
At the beginning of the year, the new 15-member board of PMI national headquarters, elected at the General Assembly in December 2009 and led by an ex-vice president, took office. This board inherited a strategic plan for 2009-2014 from their predecessors but soon announced a number of new ‘On Top’ programme priorities, of which the most prominent is to achieve over 100 per cent increase in voluntary nonremunerated blood donations in order to reach the WHO recommended target of two per cent of the total population, or four million bags a year. At the same time, the new PMI board initiated a process of reviewing and revising the PMI national headquarters’ organizational structure, organizational policies, staffing and roles and functions of management and governance which went on throughout 2010 and will continue into 2011.
IFRC, PMI and all remaining partner national societies completed their 2004 Asia tsunami response programmes in Aceh and Nias at different times during 2010, with IFRC marking the end of its programme in Nias in June 2010 and in Aceh in December 2010. Following the trend from 2009, a number of partner national societies who first worked in Indonesia as part of the tsunami response, established longer-term programmes with PMI during the year which mainly focused on integrated community-based risk reduction or community-based health and first aid programmes lasting from two to five years. At the end of 2010, a total of 13 partner national societies were committed to supporting PMI programmes in 23 of Indonesia’s 33 provinces.
The occurrence of three serious disasters in Wasior, Mentawai and Merapi, placed additional demands on the resources of PMI and its Movement partners and continues to do so. IFRC issued an emergency appeal for a six-month response programme for the latter two of these events. As a result, some planned activities which IFRC would have supported were postponed or cancelled, and the process of preparing annual work plans for 2011 has also been constrained.
The West Sumatra emergency response programme which began in September 2009 was completed in December 2010 but the West Java emergency response programme, funded from the West Sumatra emergency appeal, is expected to continue until March 2011.
Financial situation: The revised budget for this plan for 2010 is CHF 2,564,818. Coverage is up to 228 per cent with overall expenditure in 2010 reaching 97.2 per cent.
