The impact of this disaster is the destruction of building infrastructure, the environment, and loss of life. 4,194 people died and damaged 8,107 buildings, 43 health facilities and 386 educational facilities. Mangroves as one of the ecosystems located on the coast can reduce the impact of the tsunami. This research aims to analyze the participation of local communities in mangrove management.
