Palu fishers who suffered from earthquake receive NGO: Two fishermen working on a boat, two others standing


Description : This series of photos was shot on November 8, 2019 during a visit I made of operations of a development project conducted by NGOs KIARA (Indonesian) and Terre Solidaire (French) and funded by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD). The November 2019 earthquake in North Sulawesi caused a localised tsunami which swept shore-lying houses and buildings in Palu. The earthquake and tsunami together led to the deaths of an estimated 4,340 people (source: wikipedia). The project consisted in supporting fishermen who had lost their boats in the tsunami by granting them with new traditional wooden boats. The visit was organized by Adeline Souf from AFD, Susan Gui from KIARA and KIARA field team. The photographs show the farmers finishing the boats they recently received, tsunami destruction, and a camp of refugees where some fishermen and their families could temporarily live. Together with Marta Menendez (University Paris-Dauphine), I previously conducted quantitative research on the long-term effects of earthquakes on household welfare in Indonesia (see article in Journal of Development Economics, vol.118, January 2016) and am continuing this line of research.
