Abstract—Banjarnegara is one of the regions in Central Java
which is very vulnerable to landslide disaster. This condition is
motivated by the geological conditions and the metoerological
conditions of Banjarnegara Regency that contributed to the
high potential for landslides. One area in Banjarnegara
Regency which is prone to landslides is Karangkobar
Sub-District. From 2018, there have been 23 landslides in
Karangkobar Sub-District, out of a total of 152 landslides that
occurred in Banjarnegara. This study intended to determine the
level of landslide threats in Karangkobar Sub-District and the
level of community capacity in dealing with landslide threats in
Karangkobar Sub-District. The method used in the study is
scoring, geographic information systems, descriptive, Gutman
scale, and comparative descriptive. Parameters used to
determine the threat of landslides are rainfall, slope, soil type,
land use, soil texture, soil drainage, and soil depth. While the
parameters for the level of capacity are the rules and
institutions for disaster management, early warning and
disaster risk assessment, disaster education, reduction of basic
risk factors, and preparedness development for all lines. Based
on to the result, we know that the level of landslides in
Karangkobar Sub-District consists of low landslide threat level
that covers only 1% of the Karangkobar area, moderate
landslide threat that covers 74% of the Karangkobar area, and
High level of landslide threat that covers 25% of the entire
Karangkobar area. Based on the research result shows that
most of the Karangkobar Sub-District area still has a low
capacity in dealing with disasters. The low capacity of the
community in Karangkobar Sub-District will be a serious
problem because of the large threat of landslides in the area.
For this reason, disaster mitigation efforts are needed in the
Karangkobar Sub-District community.
Index Terms—Capacity, Karangkobar, landslide, threat.
