Indonesia Will Use Tsunami ‘Buffer Zones’
to Protect People From Future Tsunamis

February 14, 2005

by Kevin Caruso

The Indonesian government will not rebuild residential areas within a two-kilometer area from the shore of Banda Aceh and several other tsunami-vulnerable towns.

"In a bid to anticipate another disaster there will be a buffer zone with mangroves in the coastal areas, and if necessary [we will] build embankments," said Planning Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati. “The buffer area would be split into a first zone comprising natural and artificial barriers to tsunamis, a second zone where only fishermen would be permitted to live, and a third zone with more natural barriers.”

Indrawati emphasized that walls will be built if needed.
