The Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED)


The Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) is a French non-profit organization working in over 30 countries worldwide to provid emergency response, early recovery, and development assistance to
communities in need. ACTED's interventions seek to cover multiple aspects of humanitarian and development crises through a multidisciplinary approach that is both global and local, and adapted to each context. ACTED's vision is to establish emergency, rehabilitation, and development. ACTED aims to guarantee the sustainability of relief interventions carried out during crises by remaining in the field after the emergency to engage in long-term
support to communities in food security, health, education, economic assistance, microfinance, advocacy, and cultural promotion. ACTED's actions are needs based and identified in a participatory manner with communities in
the areas where we are present. ACTED has been active in Indonesia since April 2005, assisting those affected by the tsunami and Nias earthquake and is now working to support livelihoods, community-based disaster risk
reduction, and child protection in North Sumatra, Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), and elsewhere.

Currently ACTED has an immediate need for qualified and experienced staff to be part of our RADKOM-DRR project in southern Belu District, NTT. ACTED, in partnership with CIS Timor, proposes to establish a community radio and provide training that will contribute to improving communication and capacity among southern Belu communities in order to improve the timeliness and nature of response to multiple coastal hazards. The intervention will also work to raise awareness of and integrate environmental management into risk reduction among communities and the government, expanding their focus and planning from simple emergency response to longer-term strategies of disaster preparedness and mitigation.
