“We all jumped into the sea to save our lives" - Indonesia
Description: “We all jumped into the sea to save our lives,” Yasin says. Another man who had jumped helped Yasin onto a couple of wooden planks that had been ripped from the hull, but there was nothing else to keep Yasin’s parents afloat. Their bodies eventually surfaced not far from his five-year-old sister, Begum, who had also drowned. His younger brother Ilias and little sister Gultaz were nowhere to be seen. Yasin was alone and bobbing in the open sea 100 kilometres off the coast of Indonesia. http://www.unhcr.org/news/stories/2016/12/58453b454/a-family-torn-apart-at-sea.html Information for media: If you would like to use this video to communicate refugee stories or require B-Roll, transcripts, stills or much more information, please contact us at drozditb@unhcr.org or tibaw@unhcr.org. --- Keep up to date with our latest videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/unhcr?sub_confirmation=1 -- UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, works to protect and assist those fleeing war and persecution.

Earthquake Index Insurance: A Tool to Help Microfinance Institutions in Indonesia
Description: Supported by the Global Index Insurance Facility (GIIF), the World Bank Group has been working with PT Reasuransi MAIPARK to design and retail an index insurance product that protects the lending portfolios of banks from liquidity crises in the aftermath of an earthquake. This is relevant particularly for microfinance institutions (MFIs) and rural banks to be able to continue lending to communities when funds are most needed. For more information, visit: http://indexinsuranceforum.org *** TRANSCRIPT: This is a story of a microfinance institutions impacting communities all over Indonesia. For thousands of microfinance institutions in Indonesia, their main client base is the surrounding local community. When business is good, clients can repay their loans, and keep money in savings accounts. But Indonesia is a large archipelago spread across the “ring of fire”, and prone to earthquakes with often devastating impacts. Over the past 100 years, there were 96 major earthquakes, causing around 300,000 fatalities. This is almost 1 major earthquake every year. Economic losses caused by the recent 3 major earthquakes was USD 10 billion. Around 133 million people, live in or near high risk earthquake zones. When an earthquake hits, communities, homes and businesses are impacted. Many clients withdraw their savings. They face trouble repaying their loans, and this often causes liquidity crises for the microfinance institutions. After the 2006 Jogja earthquake, some microfinance institutions received no loan repayments for 3 months after the earthquake. It took one full year for the repayment rates to return to normal. In Aceh, non-performing loans for some microfinance institutions in the area went beyond 20% after the 2004 earthquake, taking them several years to recover. The impact of earthquakes are felt more by microfinance institutions with limited geographic operations, as one earthquake in the area can affect all their borrowers at once. Microfinance institutions play a key role in the recovery of a community after earthquakes, when funds are needed quickly and urgently. Preventing liquidity crises, and helping them stay in business is where Earthquake Index Insurance comes in. With Earthquake Index Insurance, the microfinance institution buys insurance to protect their loan portfolios from potential liquidity crises after earthquake events. The insurance payout is triggered by a pre-determined earthquake parameter announced by an independent and established third party like the BMKG or USGS. If their loan portfolio is located in the affected area, they receive an immediate payout. This is different from traditional insurance. It cuts the need to wait for an insurance agent to come and conduct a loss assessment in order to validate the claim. Microfinance institutions can benefit from this immediate payout to mitigate liquidity crises, and continue lending to their community. In this way, earthquake index insurance can help microfinance institutions be more resilient, and help plan contingencies in advance of natural disasters. It can also help microfinance institutions secure and expand access to financial services for the local community, and ultimately be a part of protecting the livelihoods of small businesses and low income households.

Description: In May 2015 more than 1,800 people from Myanmar and Bangladesh arrived by boat in Aceh, Indonesia. Many among the group were Rohingya men, women and children from Myanmar. They claimed to have been at sea for months and were abandoned by the boats’ crews some days/ weeks before their boats landed in Aceh. UNHCR estimates that in the first three months of this year, 25,000 people left on smugglers’ boats from the Bay of Bengal.
