  10. 10. M AIN REPORT Imagining the Face of the Veranda of Mecca SOURCE: EXCLUSIVE Y unus is planning to rebuild his tsunami damaged home. The 50- year old man does not pay too much attention to the Aceh rehabilitation and reconstruction master plan. "For whatever it costs I must get back, that is where we used to live," says Yunus. He does not even care about similar disaster that may come at any time. "We live for and because of Allah, why should be afraid. When the time comes, we can die anywhere," he says further in his thick Acehnese dialect. Far away from Yunus refugee camp in Darussalam, Aceh Besar, men are busy formulating a master plan. In Jakarta there is a Nangroe Aceh Darussalam and Sumatra Utara Rehabilitation and Re- construction Planning Team (R3MAS). In Aceh alone a similar team was also established. They worked hard to have the job done within a three month period, right after the disaster.

With this strategy in place it is possible for the community to develop its own site plan. "The principle is, infra- structure and facility development must involve the community. For as long as the communitys wishes comply with the grand strategy, there is no problem for the micro aspect to follow the community willingness. This will be superior and minimize conflict," he explained further. Strategy for WSS Sector Water supply and sanitation sector is not standing by itself.
