WACANA Journal No.29 | Political Ecology of Disasters and Climate Change

In Indonesia, the extreme weather—a mark of climate-change—has occurred with an increasing frequency. Floods and droughts are becoming more frequent, each brings damaging effects. For villagers in Indonesia, climate change impacts would be widespread and fatal. The refugee of the disasters such as of the floods and landslides are expected to increase and diverse disease would spread among the workers in the village. Indonesian villages will experience a loss of land, property, and live.

The political ecology approach gives us a clearer picture of how a disaster occurrs and of the way to handle it.
