Post Landslides Recovery: Resilience of Community and Local Construction

Post-disaster recovery of landslides is a big challenge when the available resources are limited. Recovery includes the phases of rehabilitation and reconstruction. It was based on the guidelines of  BNPB (National Disaster Management Authority) in Indonesia. This case-study research analyzed the resilience principle for post-disaster recovery. The locus was at Selili Hill, an urban village in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Indonesia), with several landslides (land creeping) events over the last twenty years. The community and local construction discuss the resilience principle. This study found that the contribution of community resilience and local construction has a significant role to play in the housing recovery. Community involvement was very active during a disaster. They worked with the local government to provide food supplies and emergency shelter to those in need. As a result, the house rehabilitation was quite successful, focusing on social (income) and physical condition. We hope that the post-disaster rehabilitation concept and demonstration will be durable until the local government relocates the settlement.

She brought architecture and construction expertise to the cooperation with Zakiah. She meticulously gathered information about local house construction techniques in the field. Mafazah's thorough analysis and assessment of the data yielded restoration solutions and optimum building materials. Her involvement with local government agencies provided practical insights into regulatory compliance for the diagram. Mafazah thoroughly planned the diagram's visual look to ensure clarity and communicating potency.
