Department:Humanitarian Response
Essential Job Duties/Scope of Work:


A series of powerful earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi on Friday, September 28. The largest quake, a powerful magnitude 7.4, shook the region at 5:02 p.m. local time, triggering a tsunami, major liquefaction and landslides that hit nearby coastlines, including the coastal city of Palu. The quake was centered about 35 miles northeast of Donggala and 50 miles north of Palu, which have a combined population of more than 600,000 people. Indonesia’s National Agency for Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) spokesman, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, stated that an estimated 2.4 million people were affected by the earthquake and tsunami. State authorities also report more than 82,775 people displaced and at least 10,679 injured.

International Medical Corps’ Emergency Response Team arrived in Jakarta within 48 hours of the disaster and began coordinating with national and local actors to determine the scale of need and consider potential interventions. Based upon the Government of Indonesia

The following recommendation are based on the findings of the IMC Emergency Response Team’s initial Indonesia assessment and strongly consider the GoI’s limited acceptance of international support. In addition, IMC has already secured funding for a response and should look for the most expedient means to program those funds that support relief and recovery efforts.




IMC has already identified several partners that are capable and willing to respond. Furthermore, IMCs ability to implement any activities hinges upon maintaining standing, formal partnerships with local organizations. Engaging with local NGOs now will allow rapid implementation of relief efforts and position IMC to respond in the long term.
