Description of Project:

The first Triple-A Tools were developed in Yogyakarta between 2000 and 2002 at provincial, district (kabupaten/kota) and sub-district (kecamatan) level. The focus of these first Triple-A tools was on the development of public infrastructure. In an updated version of 2005, the emphasis was shifted towards economic growth, creation of jobs and poverty reduction through regional cooperation and urban-rural linkages. Following the earthquake in May 2006 in the district of Yogyakarta, Swisscontact Indonesia was also able to quickly update the existing Atlas of this province with disaster-related information, effectively helping the government in its recovery and reconstruction planning and efforts. Originally Swisscontacts own budget was used for the effort, but during the process SDC and the Swiss and German Red Cross volunteered to contribute.
