Description The project provides $3 million grant under the Asia Pacific Disaster Response Fund (APDRF) as emergency assistance to the Government of Indonesia in response to a 4.7 magnitude earthquake occurred on 28 September 2018 near the city of Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. It was preceded by several foreshocks, the largest of which a magnitude of 6.1, while at least 170 aftershocks ranging in magnitude from 2.9 to 6.3 have subsequently occurred. The 7.4 magnitude temblor also triggered a near-field tsunami, which struck parts of the coasts of Palu and Donggala. As per the situation report from the ASEAN Humanitarian Assistance (AHA) center, at least 1,424 people were confirmed to have died, 2,549 injured, 113 missing and 70,821 people displaced, while electricity and communications have been disrupted, road severely damaged, and 66,238 houses damaged. The displaced population are living in tents in over 141 sites or have no shelter. Liquefaction has been reported, with black mud rising up to five meters and reportedly burying one hundred people alive in Petobo village in Palu.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The earthquakes and tsunami in Sulawesi were preceded by 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Lombok in August 2018 that caused 515 fatalities and displaced 431,416 people as reported by AHA. The back-to-back disasters have stretched government's resources required to restore and deliver life-saving services to the affected population in timely fashion, including budgetary and logistical constraints. Government resources, both in terms of capacities and financially, should hence be augmented by development partners to facilitate effective and timely life-saving services and rehabilitation efforts. ADB's immediate financial assistance would help alleviate financial resource constraints to meet immediate needs related to delivering life supporting services.
