Lombok Earthquake


This page is dedicated by RDI to record the knowledge management regarding the disastrous earthquakes that have hit the Island of Lombok (known as Lombok Earthquakes), inflicting fatalities, injuries, and damages to the island and its inhabitants. Thanks to our on-site partners involved in the region, we are provided with a steady stream of data, which we attempt to process and elaborate on, in order to inform readers about relief efforts, damages to the communities, city and districts, along with the rehabilitation and rebuilding assessments and current progress.

It is hoped that our findings could bring light to how various public sectors are affected, the immediate needs of those who are currently displaced, how to mitigate and reduce the impact of disaster in the future, and what we need to be aware of in an emergency response setting. The findings will be published on our website as additional information for individuals and institutions that are involved in the earthquake relief and response efforts.
