Abstract

This article delves into enhancing disaster response efficacy by analyzing the 2006 Bantul earthquake in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The study investigates challenges, strategies, and lessons from the seismic event. Employing a qualitative descriptive approach, it examines impact, information gathering, resource allocation, and inter-organizational collaboration. Findings reveal substantial infrastructure and community impact. Information gathering was hindered, necessitating real-time data collection and advanced technology. Swift humanitarian aid allocation by the Indonesian government faced data accuracy challenges, impacting recovery efforts. Inter-organizational collaboration showed both successes and barriers due to protocol disparities, communication issues, and sectoral competition. In conclusion, this study emphasizes improving disaster response efficacy. The 2006 Bantul earthquake offers insights for advancing information gathering, resource allocation, and collaboration. Acknowledging local government limitations, the study underscores learning from these setbacks to build stronger disaster management systems. Integration of these insights can bolster future responses, enhancing coordination and effectiveness in mitigating community impact.
