In late December 2006, widespread flooding struck eastern and central Aceh and parts of neighbouring North Sumatra province, affecting seven Acehnese districts. Government requested that a damage assessment be carried out in affected areas to assess the damage and to better design post‐emergency assistance.
The total damage and losses caused by the flood are estimated at US$ 210 million or Rp. 1.9 trillion, mostly concentrated in infrastructure and housing and the productive sector. The report also provides a detailed assessment of human needs all around the region after the disaster.
