TheJakartaPostThe Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi) has called on the government to brace for a potential increase in ecological disasters.

Walhi's campaigner for disaster mitigation, Mukri Friatna, said that heavy rainfall, which is expected to reach 500 millimeters in November, could potentially occur in most areas across the country.

Mukri said that both the public and the government should immediately devise plans to mitigate the impact of ecological disasters such as flooding and landslides.

"Ecological disasters have intensified, both in frequency and volume, from previous years. Material damage, financial loss and fatalities caused by natural disasters have been increasing over time," said Mukri on Sunday as quoted by Antara news agency.
