Opportunities and Challenges in Implementing Adaptive Social Protection Policies for Indigenous Peoples in Indonesia

In response to the multifaceted challenges faced by the community, particularly those arising from disaster and climate change impacts, the government has strategically prioritised social protection through initiatives such as Adaptive Social Protection (ASP). The ASP concept is central to this effort, aiming to build resilience against environmental risks proactively. In the context of indigenous communities, ASP holds great potential in enhancing social protection by aligning with their adaptive strategies. However, challenges like data management issues, limited access to remote areas, and cultural considerations persist. Overcoming these challenges is crucial for effectively implementing ASP, ensuring meaningful protection for indigenous peoples in the dynamic landscape of social and environmental risks.
