FLOODS IN PAPUA, INDONESIA

18 March 2019

At least 73 people have died and more than 60 are missing in flash floods in Indonesia's eastern province of Papua. Roads have been blocked by landslides and fallen trees, and floodwaters have damaged two bridges and more than 100 houses. More than 4,000 people have been forced from their homes, and some are sheltering in government offices.

ADRRN’s chairperson, Amod Mani Dixit shared his concerns via his Facebook post:

"Deeply saddened by the news on the death toll in Papua floods in Indonesia, express condolence and compassion with the family members via our ADRRN members in Indonesia. The people and government of Indonesia have achieved record progress in localizing DRR and DRM in the past ten years - other nations learn from Indonesia. We hope that our brethren there will cope with the humanitarian crises, learn lessons and improve the level of preparedness and response capacities towards the multitude of hazard types Indonesia is facing".
