Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Indonesia is one country that has a high incidence of natural disasters. Among the various types of disasters, landslides are one of the most common hydrometeorological disasters. One of the areas that have a high rate of landslide disaster is Cianjur district, West Java province. Assessing of economic loss due to landslide disaster in a region is one of the important tools in the recovery and reconstruction framework. The purpose of this research was to asses the indirect losses of three areas affected by landslide in Cibanteng Village, Cianjur district, West Java. In this study, the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) was used to create high-resolution maps of areas affected by landslide. Participatory mapping was conducted to delineate damaged land use areas and then interviewed the farmers to obtain information about the agriculture activities. The results of this study showed that the amount of indirect losses in the three location reached Rp 352,811,700 (US $ 25,200) at the landslide occurance and Rp 1,205,152,300 (US $86,082) for the indirect losses in 2.5 years. This value can be a reference for assessing indirect losses in other areas.
