As part of agenda visit to Indonesia, the representatives of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) went to the FORCLIME site in Palu, Central Sulawesi on 29 – 31 January.

The participatory village mapping, which is based on the Disaster-Prone Zone Map from the government, aims to support the community in having a better understanding of their village situation after the Tsunami. The participatory mapping process includes documenting the current situation, additionally, recording the community’s ideas for the future of their village.

Lere village, one of six villages in the West Palu Subdistrict has a population of 11.512 people (data 2017), it is the most populated village in the greater Palu area.  Since it is situated exactly at the tip of the Palu Basin, Lere was impacted severely from the deadly Tsunami on 28th of September 2018. Next to a tremendous loss of human life, a significant number of houses, buildings, facilities and village infrastructure have been destroyed.
