Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 130

Contingency planning and field testing are activities held in the pre-disaster phase. These activities are needed to measure the preparedness in facing the possibility of disasters, including community preparedness. The facilitation of 5000 volunteers throughout Indonesia and the promotion of DRR forum establishment have also been conducted to achieve self-reliance on disaster management. [...] Efforts to ensure the principle of "no one left behind" in disaster management is carried out by involving persons with disabilities as actors in disaster mitigation. Good practices have been carried out, among others, through the establishment of the Difagana (difabel siaga bencana) volunteer group in Yogyakarta Province and the establishment of Disability Inclusion Services Unit (LIDi, Layanan Inklusi Disabilitas) in disaster management in Central Java Province.
