Efforts to prevent the spread of disaster false information through social media are significant to anticipate by stakeholders, especially in communities. The current climate change condition causes many disasters, so this effort is essential so that holistic disaster management can be carried out. Although social media can support the acceleration of information about disasters, spreading false information will cause anxiety, fear, and wrong decision-making to prepare and be resilient to disasters. This study aims to describe the integration of local capacity building in dealing with false information about disasters into community-based disaster risk management. The research uses a qualitative approach by conducting secondary data analysis and an integrative literature review. The findings from this study are the importance of increasing capacity building in the selection and preventing the spread of false information about disasters with local reinforcement. One way for capacity building that can be done is through digital literacy education. In the disaster preparation and mitigation phase, digital literacy in the community is a priority in preparing to deal with disaster risk. The contribution of this study can be an alternative for holistic disaster management efforts and disaster communication evaluation for coordination and partnership with other stakeholders.
