This study analyses the laws related to disaster risks in Indonesia using the pilot version of the ‘Checklist on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction’, which was developed jointly by IFRC and UNDP through a global consultation process. This report is the result of an integrated research process that combined desk-based legal research with stakeholder interviews in-country, followed by a multistakeholder consultation workshop held in February 2016 to verify the research findings and explore relevant issues with participants. It provides a ‘legal mapping’ of the laws and regulations that address disaster risk reduction (DRR) in Indonesia, analysing them against the questions contained in the Checklist and assessing their implementation based on stakeholder feedback and secondary sources. It is intended to provide law, policy and decision-makers with an analysis for consideration in future developments of the legal framework for DRR and its implementation.
