The Level of Threats and Community Capacity Concerning to Landslide Emergency in Banjarnegara Indonesia

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.
