Abstract

This paper highlights the importance of a non-technical approach to providing hazard maps for community-based landslide risk reduction at the village level. Such maps should be simple and user friendly, so they can be easily prepared and used effectively for mitigation actions by the village communities. Various key parameters required for such mapping are discussed, in line with standard procedures for hazard mapping. A pilot study was carried out in Tengklik Village in Karanganyar Region, Central Java, Indonesia, to test this proposed procedure for hazard mapping. It was concluded that converting the technical information in the maps into more simple terms that will address the practical needs and socio-cultural conditions in any particular village is crucial for assuring the effective employment of such maps in landslide mitigation actions. This chapter describes the achievements and the current activities of IPL-165 “Development of community-based landslide hazard mapping for landslide risk reduction at the village scale in Java, Indonesia” and IPL-158 “Development of Education Program for Sustainable Development in Landslide Vulnerable Area through Student Community Service”.
