1 December 2022 10:15 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) head Lt. Gen. Suharyanto said the government has prepared relocation areas and will build houses for residents affected by the Cianjur earthquake, West Java.

Suharyanto and Coordinating Minister for Human Empowerment and Culture Muhadjir Effendy visited a number of areas hardly hit by the quake on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, including Sirnagalih Village, Cilaku District.

“16 hectares of land have been prepared. The district head and his team will decide on residents who will be relocated here later,” said Suharyanto in a BNPB press release, Thursday, December 1, 2022.

Residents will receive a house. “Once residents who have been relocated have new houses and land rights, the government will manage the previous land [damaged by the quake] so that they will not return there,” he explained.

Suharyanto also said that the affected land will be designed as a water catchment area and a green area to anticipate casualties if an earthquake occurs again in the future.

The BNPB head and the entourage then reviewed the construction of a sample earthquake-resistant house. “It will be used as an example house for residents, type 36 RISHA (the Healthy Modest Instantaneous House),” said Suharyanto when talking about the relocation plan with residents of Ciwalen Village, Warungkondang District.
