The socio-economic impacts of floods on Jakarta

Jakarta is prone to flooding as it sits in a low lying area with 13 rivers that overflow periodically. Flood incidents occur yearly and usually affect a significant number of residents. The flood of 2007, for example, inundated about 60% of the city, affecting more than 2.6 million people. The main purpose to this project is to trigger greater responsibility on the part of households, communities and the private sector to intensify their efforts to help resolve Jakarta’s flooding problems by identifying and measuring the impact of floods on important welfare outcomes among affected households.
