Abstract

Many countries in the world have various kinds of problems, such as disasters. Indonesia is one of the countries with high area and population affected by landslides, such as in several regions in Indonesia, namely Bogor Districts. The affected population can be caused by the increasing number of residents and built-up areas, as well as the low level of public knowledge about landslides. The high population affected can describe the level of vulnerability and capacity that exists in the community, such as in South Babakan Madang Subdistrict. The density of the population and the built-up area which includes settlements, public facilities and community knowledge related to landslides that are different in 3 Countryside namely Bojong Koneng, Cijayanti, and Karang Tengah make the people in South Babakan Madang Subdistrict vulnerable to landslides.
