|Pilot Site: Palabuhanratu Sub-district
a) Level of preparedness for hazards: CCA/DRRM plan, early warning system and capable institutional mechanism in place and functioning effectively
b) Degree of vulnerability to hazards: 1) 5% of households in highly vulnerable coastal areas relocated away from hazard zones; 2) 100% of households in highly vulnerable coastal areas provided with evacuation routes and safe refuge locations
|Profiles of highly vulnerable coastal communities
|Generally, Sukabumi Regency is considered as one of the disaster-prone districts in Indonesia. Existing and potential hazards in Sukabumi include: coastal erosion, tsunami, floods, earthquake, typhoons, sea level rise, landslide, fire.
Disaster risk assessment has shown that there are 236 villages with a high risk of multi-level disasters, 119 villages with a moderate risk level and there are only 14 villages with a low risk level.
Palabuhanratu is one of the 14 coastal subdistricts of Sukabumi.
The ongoing baseline assessment will look at the specific vulnerabilities of coastal villages in Palabuhanratu.
|Proposal/management action plan for CCA/DRRM-focused ICM pilot demonstration project for highly vulnerable coastal area/community
|The Sukabumi District Disaster Management Agency (BPBD Sukabumi) is the main agency responsible for disaster management, including establishment of policies that include prevention and mitigation, preparedness, emergency response, rehabilitation and reconstruction. It coordinates implementation of disaster management together with the departments of health, social services, highways, forestry, marine and fisheries, communication and information technology, agriculture, etc. in accordance with their respective authorities
Sukabumi has a Disaster Management Plan (2013-2018)
Early warning systems have been established in 7 areas in Sukabumi.
Evacuation routes have been established in 25 areas along the 117 km coastline of Sukabumi
Signs/evacuation signs have been established in 25 areas in 9 subdistricts.
Specific disaster preparedness and response mechanisms in place in Palabuhanratu Subdistrict will be confirmed in the baseline assessment.
|CCA/DRRM Plans, early warning systems and institutional mechanisms
|Multi-hazard maps showing various levels of threat are available for Sukabumi Regency covering drought, extreme weather, flooding and inundation, abrasion (erosion), earthquake, landslide, tsunami, volcanic eruption and fire.
Maps considering physical, environmental, economic and social vulnerabilities and the level of capacity of villages to respond to disasters are also available.
Based on the threats, vulnerabilities and adaptive capacities, the risk of specific disasters have been
For Palabuhanratu District, for example, the risk of tsunami is high considering its high threat level for tsunami, moderate to high level of vulnerability, and very capacity of coastal villages to respond to disasters. Areas to affected by tsunami with a height of 12.5 m above sea level were identified.
Level of risk for other hazards in Palabuhanratu Subdistrict and coastal villages being confirmed
|Trainings on vulnerability assessment, mapping etc.
|Preparation of specific or more detailed DRRM plan for Palabuhanratu Subdistrict being confirmed
|Policy/financial commitment in support of action plan
|Various ongoing efforts related to:
- Socialization of disaster prone areas, disaster preparedness and disaster management to the public (including communities and schools), and through booklets, leaflets, alert posters, radio spots and disaster alert
- Establishment of SOPs for disaster management
- Establishment of quick response team and standby unit
- Disaster preparation of personnel
- Installation of warning signs of tsunami hazard
|Impacts/benefits derived (socio-economic, public awareness, reduced risk, improved resiliency)
|Case studies, good practices, climate smart policies and legislation
|Investments in climate change adaptation measures (including hard and soft engineering solutions)
|Percentage of households in highly vulnerable coastal areas relocated away from hazard zones (Project target: 5%)
|To be confirmed
|Percentage of households in highly vulnerable coastal areas provided with evacuation routes and safe refuge locations
(Project target: 100%)
