indonesia scoping study on climate change and srhr


In this study YJP draws on the positive spirit existing throughout the alliance, both in the program in Asian‐Pacific countries and in Indonesia. The objectives of this study are to mainstream gender and women’s SRHR into climate change policy in Central Java. These objectives are divided into two major aims. First, to establish linkages between climate change and women’s SRHR within the provincial and national contexts. Second, to disseminate the findings via Advocacy Brief to multi‐stakholders. Third, to build multi‐actor alliances in relation to climate change and women’s SRHR with the goal of improving gender mainstreaming and women’s SRHR services in Central Java after the research findings are shared to stakholders. The research methodology applies an eco‐feminist approach combined with PAR (Participatory Action Research) techniques. This method involves, first, the preparation of research, including three internal workshops of the team with YJP, YLSKAR dan PPSW UKSW, to formulate the guidelines for research implementation, and to develop an action plan for the period July – December 2014, and for 2015. Second, document and policy reviews were conducted through a set of internal team workshops attended by related experts. Third, field observations and community meetings were conducted to map out the preliminary data about the communities in terms of hazards, risks, capacities and vulnerabilities within the communities in terms of the SRHR and the climate change concept. Fourth, in‐depth interviews and Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) were carried out at the level of local communities; NGOs and social action groups; universities and research centers; the executive government (Kantor Badan Pemberdayaan Perempuan/The Office of Women’s Empowerment, Badan Penanggulangan Bencana Daerah/Local Disaster Management Board, and the Komisi E, Public Welfare/Commission of Public Welfare of the DPRD I; and in non‐ structural bureaus, including the Komisi Perlindungan Korban Kekerasan Berbasis Gender dan Anak/The Commission for the Protection of Victims of Gender‐Based Violence and of Children) in Central Java.
