The Jakarta Post
JAKARTA: National Development Planning Minister Armida Alisjahbana said Thursday that the government would relocate 5,100 households, or 7,900 people of Wasior floods victims, to several temporary settlements.
“We will relocate them to 96 temporary settlements in the first phase, starting from December through to the first quarter of next year,” she told journalists.
“We will supply their basic needs for six months, including daily meals,” she said, adding that the government would evaluate the relocation program after three months. The government said the Wasior reconstruction and rehabilitation would cost Rp 303.9 billion (US$33.73 million), with Rp 140.9 billion going to reconstruction of settlements and Rp 163 billion for relocation.
A series of widespread flashfloods hit Wasior in Wondama Bay, West Papua, on Oct. 3, killing about 144 people and injuring more than 1,000 others. — JP
