Jakarta has a history of severe flooding and studies have found that the frequency of floods has increased in recent years.
In view of this recurring natural hazard, the scope of this report will focus on studying Jakarta’s emergency response, carrying out a policy evaluation and making recommendations, particularly in regard to flood management. Our proposal will focus on the process and procedures for emergency response coordination.
In the course of our research, different stakeholder groups made repeated calls for better inter-agency coordination and deeper community involvement in the city’s emergency response efforts. This proposal will look at developing an effective governance structure and coordination framework, while surveying the existing framework and offering recommendations for improvement.
