Suahasil Nazara, the Head of the Fiscal Policy Agency, Ministry of Finance, Indonesia, said that the country must work to ensure it has the capacity to respond to disaster.
Last weeks Sulawesi quake and tsunami devastation for the city of Palu and the region surrounding it are expected to cost the country significantly more.
The UN Resident Coordinator in Indonesia, Ms. Anita Nirody, said, "The quake and tsunami effectively cut off much of Palu and Donggala for several days due to landslides and damage to infrastructure, and has created significant logistical and access challenges".
"What is important is we are alive and for that we should be grateful", he said.
More than 80,000 people have been displaced and thousands of homes and buildings in Palu and surrounding areas have been destroyed.
The Response Plan was developed in consultation with the Government of Indonesia counterparts, and articulates how the humanitarian community working in the country will provide targeted, technical assistance in support of the Government-led response. The report said the two were paragliding athletes taking part in an event in the area.
The natural disaster has already claimed more than 1,400 lives and Bungay Rotary Club is attempting to raise money to send Shelterboxes to the impacted areas.
Van Deinse said she had been with an IFRC team that sought to bring supplies to the small village of Petobo, near Palu - only to discover that, for all intents and purposes, the village no longer even existed.

If the mission goes according to plan, Sunday night will mark SpaceX's first landing of this sort on the West Coast. Shortly afterward SpaceX confirmed that SAOCOM 1A had been successfully deployed in record time.
The spokesman said that other victims still are buried in the mud and debris and have not yet been recovered. Fuel remained another concern, with villagers forced to queue at pumps for more than six hours. Though the power supply has been restored to some districts, rolling black outs continued to hit the city.
President Joko Widodo - who has battled false internet claims that he is a communist - inaugurated a new cyber security agency in January.
He said as of Wednesday, power supply in Palu has reached 40 percent of its normal capacity. "The food situation in Palu remains dire, and with the market closed we're even struggling to feed ourselves", said Genadi Aryawan, a Mercy Corps team member stationed in the city.
At least 45 people were caught red-handed in the looting of stores.
Time was running out on Wednesday for anyone trapped in the rubble of a devastating quake and tsunami in Indonesia, five days after disaster struck, while increasingly angry survivors waited for an aid operation to move into high gear.
The province's only airport serving flights to Palu was not operating normally as part of its runway was cracked by the strong quake that made it only capable of serving propeller planes, instead of large cargo aids deliverer planes.
The process to deliver aids for refugees and survivors of tsunami faced difficulties as the mainland accesses to Palu and Donggala were clogged by stones rolling down from hills due to aftershocks that made it riskier for aids team to get supplies to Palu.
