Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development


The Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) is a French
non-profit organization working in over 30 countries worldwide to provide
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.
