Entering the second week after the big flood, floods have receded significantly in some areas of Jakarta but some location in the upstream area. Monitoring of rainfall conditions and potential flooding from upstream and downstream is carried out jointly between the regional government (city/district) and the central government.

URGENT NEEDS

  • Management of shelter: Many temporary shelters and logistical posts have been set up, but they still need to be managed that ensures inclusion, health and safety aspects.

  • Personal hygiene kits.

  • Post-flood hygiene equipment: with water receding at some points, the communities have begun to carry out activities to clean their house and the environment. The equipment includes shovels, gunny sacks and spray water to clean mud.

  • Health: paramedics and medicine supplies, especially for patients who complain of itching, fever and diarrhea.

  • Food: food supplies are still safe for several days, but if flooding conditions last for a long time, then the public kitchen still needs food supplies.
