Yakkum Emergency Unit (YEU) – Inclusive Humanitarian System and Landscape in Indonesia

Humanitarian landscape have changed over the past 10 years and the pandemic forces humanitarian actors to adjust their work methods to those where localization is increasingly inevitable. Concurrently, the government plays an increasingly clear and assertive role and leadership and formally adopts a cluster approach to improve planning and efficiency of humanitarian response. 
 
This scoping study seeks to describe the humanitarian system in Indonesia to, subsequently, assess its effectiveness in implementing an inclusive approach, including in the context of changes caused by the pandemic, and its implications on the protection, needs fulfillment and participation of vulnerable groups. This study is intended to be an input in the preparation of the YEU program and also serve as a basis for encouraging improvements to a more inclusive emergency response system. 
 
This study uses a combined qualitative methodology. The sample was determined purposively. Data collection used Desk Review, In Depth Interview, and FGD techniques. The results of the study focus on the landscape of Indonesia’s humanitarian system, the effectiveness of integrating aspects of inclusion, and innovation and opportunities for improvement. 
 
Study recommendations based on the Inclusion Charter (Inclusion Charter, Disaggregated Data, Availability of Resources, Inclusive Capacity, Inclusive Coordination) on the parts of the government, vulnerable group organizations and civil society organizations that need to be considered when improving an inclusive humanitarian system in Indonesia.
