Operational Summary: The Indonesian Red Cross Society (PMI), supported by the Federation delegation, has delivered the proposed emergency response to meet the immediate needs of the people affected by the floods in Indonesia, within expected two months period. As a result the targeted families have had access to potable water, cooking facilities, hygiene items, plastic sheeting for shelter, sleeping mat as bedding, and primary medical care; thereby improving basic coping capacities and reducing the risk of disease outbreak. Generous donor support has permitted relief to be provided to a greater number of affected people in other severe flood affected areas than originally planned and is the reason for extending this operation. Although the affected communities have resumed daily activities the long-term damage of this disaster - food insecurity, lack of employment, low income, and poor health facilities - still remains. With the continued donor support and relevant authorities, the focus of this operation now focuses on addressing these long-term consequences of the severe floods by initiating a food-for-work programme and cash-crop seed distribution. Procurement of emergency non-food item provisions (household/hygiene kits and tarpaulin for 3,100 families/15,500 people; water purification tablets with five years shelf life for 50,000 families/250,000 people) for contingency stock is underway, during this recovery and rehabilitation phase.

All International Federation assistance seeks to adhere to the Code of Conduct and is committed to the Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Disaster Response in delivering assistance to the most vulnerable.

Background

Following almost immediately after the floods in November/December, 2003, further torrential rains hit Indonesia causing extensive flooding. The flood water inundated thousands of houses and paddy fields displacing people in West and South Kalimantan, West Java, South and West Sumatra and East Nusa Tenggara province. At field level, the PMI SATGANA team was engaged in all affected provinces, together with SATKORLAK/SATLAK, in evacuation, first aid, registration, assessment, and field kitchen mobilisation.

Local level coordination of emergency relief continued with SATLAK and sub-district disaster management authorities in terms of selecting beneficiaries in Jumbi, Palembang and newly affected West Kalimantan. In Jumbi, local government provided storage facilities and local transport to carry out relief operation. Information sharing on various activities, i.e. the food-for-work programme and seed distribution, ensured that there was no overlap and duplication of efforts in meeting the beneficiary needs during the planning of a recovery and rehabilitation approach especially during further assessments, random interview s and mapping of the area of operation.

Red Cross and Red Crescent action - objectives, progress, impact

To date, some 6,738 families (33,515 beneficiaries) have been assisted in seven different districts under four provinces more than meeting the relief objective of this emergency operation - to assist 25,000 beneficiaries (5,000 families) in the worst flood affected areas by providing access to potable water, household/hygiene kits and temporary shelter.

Based on the assessment findings and through a coordinated effort between the Federation and SATLAK, PMI the distribution programme in Jumbi, South Sumatra, East Nusa Tenggara and West Kalimantan provinces has been completed.

Conclusion

January to March, 2004, was a very challenging period for the disaster management unit of PMI and the Federation country delegation. Besides the floods emergency operation, the team had to provide assistance to a total of six other disasters throughout the period including four earthquakes, one volcanic eruption and two flash floods/landslides. The assessment team was engaged in all disaster areas and preliminary responses performed by PMI on an as-need s basis. As a result, the recovery and rehabilitation part of this operation - procurement of contingency stock has been delayed - therefore the operation is to be extended until 30 May 2004. The unrelenting cascade of disasters in Indonesia and the imperative of consulting with donors on the additional funds and receipt of significant pledges well into the operational period delayed the preparation of this operations update and revised budget.
