Abstract

Indonesia, an archipelagic nation which lies on the tectonic plate namely pacific ring of fire, it addresses for how Indonesia has 129 active volcanic mountains. Although it geologically prone for endangered areas for earthquake and volcanic eruption, but beneath the vicinity of mountain edifice, lies geothermal potential energy. Most of Indonesian geothermal located on the mountain hills and a slope, that condition makes geothermal area prone to landslide. One of which can be found in Bandung Regency, West Java Province, Indonesia. The increasing risk landslide phenomena in Indonesia are related to natural physical factor and socio-economic conditions. The aims of this research are to analyze the risk level of landslide disaster which is reviewed by the aspects of hazard threat, vulnerability and capacity, and to give mitigation alternatives. The method of this research has been conducted by assessment of weight and scoring technique as well as spatial analysis using Geographical Information System (GIS). The result of the study shows most of the area of the study is in medium risk level that is prone to landslide occurrence with the broad of 7,420.4 Ha or 57% of the study area. Mitigation effort in facing landslide in the study area is aimed to maintain the sustainability of utilization of renewable energy which is geothermal energy that will be reviewed from three aspects sustainability, namely environmental, economic, and social.
