Welcome

Welcome to the EEFIT Mission to Sulawesi, Indonesia blog!

The aims of this mission are to carry out post-disaster fieldwork following the 28 September 2018 earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Indonesia. The mission will be conducted between the 17th to 24th of November and will aim to assess the impacts of the event on the built environment as well as the management and mitigation practices and systems in place. The knowledge and skills resulting from the mission will be invaluable to the disciplines of structural, civil and geotechnical engineering as well as natural hazard and risk assessment and will ultimately help to reduce losses in future events.

The mission team will be an international collaboration between academic and industry professionals led by Professor Tiziana Rossetto from University College London.

Stay tuned for updates on progress and findings…
