This report covers the period 1 July 2011 to 30 November 2011.
The purpose of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) programme is to support the institutional capacity building of the Indonesian Red Cross (Palang Merah Indonesia/PMI), and facilitate a coordinated approach of the Movement in supporting PMI‟s programmes and development in Indonesia.
During this reporting period, there are many significant improvements achieved by PMI. The IFRC country office in Indonesia continues to assist PMI in strengthening its ability to be better prepared in responding more quickly and appropriately in emergency and disaster situations. For the last half of 2011, most of the activities supported under this appeal have focused on PMI responses to localized emergencies around the country, PMI capacity building, contingency planning, preparedness and disaster mitigation training activities.Additionally, the review and refinement of key PMI guidelines and standard operation procedures for each programme area including finance, human resource and office management was also the highlight of the activities during the second half of 2011. IFRC continues its support in developing PMI's human resource capacity to improve its services to those most vulnerable as well as to improve its profile in public through involvement in various national and international events. These activities will continue in 2012 with focus on the finalization and synchronization of policy guidelines developed this year as well as the follow up IFRC's new framework for stronger National Societies and systems, and proposed integration of community-based programmes.

IFRC Indonesia country office focuses primarily on support to, and capacity building of the PMI national headquarters (NHQ). This support and capacity building enhances the ability of the PMI headquarters to deliver support, capacity building and coordination to its 33 chapters and more than 400 branches and, in turn, the national society‟s overall capacity to deliver services to vulnerable people throughout Indonesia.
Some partner national societies remain in Indonesia to support PMI in longer term community-based programmes, organizational development and more. To date, 13 national societies continue to support PMI. They are: American Red Cross, Australian Red Cross, Belgian Red Cross, Canadian Red Cross Society, Danish Red Cross, French Red Cross, German Red Cross, Hong Kong Branch of Red Cross Society of China, Italian Red Cross, Japanese Red Cross Society, Netherlands Red Cross, Norwegian Red Cross, and Spanish Red Cross
