Implementation of Desa Tangguh Bencana policy in Magelang Regency

Keywords: implementation, policy, Destana, regency, Magelang.


Natural disasters continue to occur in Magelang Regency every year and cause damage and loss to the community. The government agency designated for disaster management, namely Badan Penyelenggaraan Penanggulangan Bencana (BPBD), develops Disaster Resilient Village Program (Destana). The purpose of this study is to analyse the implementation of Desa Tangguh Bencana in Magelang Regency. The research methodology uses qualitative methods and data collection techniques through observation, interviews and documentation. The results of the study demonstrate that the implementation of Desa Tangguh Bencana policy in Magelang Regency regarding the objectives of the Destana program in Margoyoso village could be achieved because the Destana activists understood the program's objectives and there is support from the government, non-governmental institutions, village institutions and the community. Meanwhile, the implementation of the Destana program is also influenced by the support of human resources, funds, infrastructure and other resources. The implementation of the Destana program in Margoyoso village is quite successful due to resources, namely human resources, funds and infrastructure available in Margoyoso village. Policy implementation requires collaboration, namely coordination and cooperation of performers of Destana activities. In carrying out Destana activities, the consensus is needed to reach decisions that are beneficial to all parties. In cooperation and coordination, it is necessary to have clear job descriptions of each participant so that there is no overlapping when implementing activities.
