Migrant preparedness from earthquake hazard in Bandung city

Source(s):  Resilience Development Initiative (RDI)

This paper aims to assess migrant preparedness to earthquakes. It is based in the West Java province of Indonesia, specifically in the capital, Bandung City. The city is prone to the multi-hazard disaster risk caused by its close proximity to the Lembang fault line. This paper attempts to define international students as temporary migrants and utilizes survey questions directed to migrants, in order to try to best extract information regarding the understanding, preparedness and experience of earthquakes. The results show that migrants have similar degrees of motivation, previous experience, information and communication, and trust in authorities, which in effect also affects their level of preparedness toward earthquake hazard in Bandung City. The results were then broken down more thoroughly in an attempt to determine the cause of the similarity in each attribute. This paper also discusses through what means these attributes could be increased in order to achieve a sufficient level of preparedness and identified several recommendations.
