Resilient Kampung Guideline Document

Climate change has posed a bigger challenge to the development of Indonesian cities and increased social and economic vulnerability for communities. Higher rainfall intensity, sea-level rise, storm surges, slowly give losses to the cities and its people: loss of livelihoods for coastal communities due to tides and abrasion, damage to houses and residential infrastructure and economic losses due to flooding, and so on. For Recent years, the Semarang City Government made various efforts to increase the city’s resilience to facing climate change, both through structural efforts (construction of polders, flood canals, etc.) and non-structural efforts (development of flood early warnings, etc.). However, efforts to increase resilience need to be encouraged at various scales, especially at the lowest level (village), to encourage the creation of comprehensive urban resilience.

The Resilient Kampung Guideline document contains a description of the technical components that shape urban resilience at the community/community level, both physical and non-physical. This guideline expected to be able to provide information for the community to create a resilient and sustainable residential environment (village), able to adapt to climate change, which planned through a risk-based process. This guideline can be used as a set of toolboxes containing intervention options that can be carried out at various scales: both households, RT / RW, and kelurahan to build urban resilience from the ground up. This guideline also expected to be able to provide information and input for the preparation of Implementation Guidelines and Technical Guidelines for the implementation of the Resilient Kampung Program in the future and can also be used as information pamphlets as a means of increasing community knowledge related to building resilience and types of interventions that contribute to building resilience.
