Abstract

The focus of this article is on advocacy work carried out by Majene district community members, particularly university students, to advance disaster prevention measures. Taking steps to reduce potential damage from disasters is an important part of disaster mitigation. Moreover, it is crucial to pay attention to disaster mitigation strategies as Majene district has the second highest disaster risk index of all districts in Indonesia, according to statistics from the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB). Various initiatives carried out by students in Majene district to encourage the formation of disaster mitigation policies show the study findings that the community has begun to realize the need for disaster mitigation. This article will be organized around Wilian N. Dunn's policy-making procedure.
