Indonesia: Earthquakes and Tsunami - Sulawesi - Emergency Plan of Action MDRID013 Operation Update n°11

Summary of current response context

For the Lombok and Sulawesi operations, at the time of writing the EPoAs, an initial discussion was taking place at the field level exploring consequences of the Government of Indonesia’s announcement to provide shelter assistance (permanent shelters and cash assistance) to all the affected households in Lombok and Sulawesi. The announcement will affect the implementation of the published plans of action, which will require further revision to provide alternative assistance for shelter.

The operations in Lombok, Sulawesi, and Sunda Strait’s overall objectives and strategy have shifted from immediate relief assistance to recovery of the affected people and increase their resilience to future disasters by providing appropriate medium-term and longer-term assistance in a timely, effective, and efficient manner. The recovery operation for Lombok and Central Sulawesi is expected to conclude by January 2021; while Sunda Strait is expected to be completed by June 2019.

Based on the recommendations from the recovery assessment team (RAT), the recovery operations will use the integrated model for recovery (the detailed model can be found in Lombok’s and Sulawesi’s EPoAs). PMI will continue to lead the recovery operations in Lombok, Sulawesi and Sunda Strait supported by IFRC/PNS.

The recovery operations will be aligned to the Federation-wide operating framework which is based on four pillars and the PMI One Plan. The recovery phase is specifically aligned with the following pillars of the framework:

• Pillar 2 - Recovery – multisectoral • Pillar 3 - Community resilience • Pillar 4 - Local actors’ capacity enhancement

PMI volunteers remain the key actors to implement the activities in the communities. There will be a strong communitydriven approach compounding the recovering activities. PMI will also undertake interventions using resources it has or it will mobilize bilaterally from Movement and non-Movement sources. These operations are an opportunity for provincial and district level teams to learn about various programmatic approaches such as cash-based interventions; community engagement and accountability; protection, gender and inclusion and will enable PMI branches to incorporate these elements in future programmes.
