TOTAL Assistance from the Japan International Corporate
Agency (JICA) for the construction of the Tsunami barrier embankment for Palu
City of Rp.

This was revealed by the Head of Palu’s Bappeda data and information,
Ibnu Munzir, Monday (05/27/2019).

“In the budgeting of JICA, a total budget of IDR 600 billion was
stated for the construction of the Tsunami barrier embankment in the bay of
Palu. It was also stated in the document issued by Bapenas,” he explained.

But according to him, the budget estimate has not been calculated in
detail. “The cost of the organizer influences the structure or model of
the building itself.” Until now there has been no change in the total
budget in the document, “said Ibn Munzir.

Responding to the progressive polemic between the construction of the
Tsunami containment embankment or the planting of mangroves along Palu Bay,
Ibnu explained that after the Libu Ntodea dialogue a few days ago, he still
considered the best.

“In this case, it is not looking for the best or not. But it is
already in the stage of looking for collaborations which are suitable to be
applied. But also the need for a combination of the two patterns,” he

He added, from the results of a dialogue between the Palu City
Government and experts, Mangrove Bay could be planted in Palu Bay. But not all
areas can be planted with these trees. “There are certain areas in the Bay
of Pau that can be planted with mangrove trees or mangroves,” he said.

Of course, some spots or areas that can be planted with Mangroves, said
Ibnu, need to be reviewed.

“However, from the dialogue, it has been pursued to save people or
rescue the people of Palu. From this there are also three alternatives. That is
through the conservation approach, in this case Mangrove tree planting, civil
engineering patterns in the construction of the Tsunami barrier and using stone
systems nature. That’s the three things that developed in the dialogue
yesterday,” he said.

Departing from this, said Ibnu, of course there will be a study and an
assessment of which one is applied. “In this case, the point is to
prioritize the level of community safety in Palu. In the end those who enjoy it
are our grandchildren. But certainly two patterns will be applied. That is the
conservation approach or mangrove planting in front of it and civil engineering
or the construction of the Tsunami barrier “he admitted.

The plan is also, continued Ibnu Munzir, the structure of construction
of the Tsunami barrier embankment can be passed by four-wheeled vehicles. But
the vehicle must not stop, or use a freeway pattern.

Besides that, the dike building system is multilevel. “Besides
being able to pass four-wheeled vehicles. In that place also made recreational spots
for the community and UMKM stands,” he explained.

The progress of the construction is still being studied or revised in
the spatial and regional plans. “Certainly the revised RT / RW was carried
out first. Because it affected the changes in the pattern of spatial
structure,” he explained. **
