Description 11 p.
Abstract According to the 2009 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR 2009), Indonesia is one of the countries in the highest category of risk (top five). It has the highest world exposure to tsunamis and landslides, the third exposure to earthquakes and is ranking 6 exposed to floods. There is a need to disaggregate the information on risk within the national level, in order to highlight wich regions should get priority attention to implement disaster risk reduction measures. The idea of this project was to test whether the methodology used at the global level for the 2009 GAR, could be used at the Indonesian National level. A first attempt was made using earthquakes hazard. A large database linking exposure to different intensity of past hazardous earthquakes with losses and contextual vulnerability parameters was created and a multiple regression analysis was run. This study provides the results of the multiple regression, but also provides recommendation on what is needed to improved so that further risk analysis.
