During the period of seven years (2009-2015), the growth of tourism in the tourist villages (desa wisata) of Karimunjawa underwent rapid progress. However, poverty figures in Karimunjawa remained high. Nevertheless, the involvement of rural people in the sustainable development of tourism is limitedly discussed. This article discusses the rural communities’ adaptation and resilience in Karimunjawa with the support of sustainable development planning in tourist villages. It covers the background of sustainable development, the elements of the communities’ adaptation capacity and resilience as well as the role of the regional government. Empirical evidence of variation in the ways towards the capacity to respond to changes of socioeconomic and ecological environments due to tourism development are presented. A case study is used in this article to describe how the people learned from their experience, knowledge and past efforts. In-depth interviews were conducted with a number of key informants in the tourist villages of Karimunjawa selected from purposive and snowballing samples to obtain the information. The results of the research show that social resilience will increase among communities who are capable of accessing flexible social networks. These social networks are practical instruments that open up dissemination of new information and knowledge. This is a key element for a stronger process of transformation. Furthermore, communities that have capital and financial access as well as skills will also be capable of adaptation to the transformation process.

In 2006, coastal inundation was firstly reported to start entering community's agriculture land in Northern part of Pekalongan, Central Java, Indonesia. The exposure covered most of paddy fields and fishponds. The disturbance has become bigger, when the exposure of coastal inundation has started to cover some part of settlement areas in 2010. Increasing salinity has prevented farmers to grow paddy cultivation and has forced them to find a new way for living. Pekalongan Municipal Government prepared Pekalongan City's Resilience Strategy (PCRS) in 2010 in cooperation with PAKLIM-GIZ, and it involved significant and meaningful local stakeholders' participation process. One of the concerning strategies was to minimize the risk of coastal inundation. In terms of PCRS implementation, observed local community has different planning interpretation in comparison to the municipal government. This paper aims to evaluate the implementation of PCRS by comparing the municipal government' and community's initiatives - either in the stage of planning or/and implementation - from a transformative adaptation perspective. Data for this study was collected through interviews with several key informants, who were selected by purposive sampling method. These key informants consist of Pekalongan Municipal Government Agencies' members and local community figures in Northern Pekalongan Sub-district. This research reveals a double development standard from the side of municipal government, when it comes to prioritize both the economy and the environment. However, the local community prefers to choose a new livelihood, which provides them not just economic security, but also social and ecological benefits.

In the last eight years (2008-2016), some areas in the northern part of Pekalongan have been experiencing coastal inundation. There have been social, economic and physical disruptions caused by coastal inundation particularly on built environments, paddy fields, and fishpond. The capacity of these areas to provide support for community livelihood has decreased significantly. This accumulative environmental change leads to the emerging of vulnerable regions which are characterized by limited social and ecological capability in responding to hazards. In order to enhance the social-ecological resilience, it is necessary to identify how these communities elevate their capacity and improve their livelihood. This paper presents empirical evidence of various pathways on how the community has transformed their capacity to respond to the changing environment due to coastal inundation. Using a case study approach, this paper explores on how the community has learned from their experiences, knowledge, and efforts withdrawn from the past, and then turns them into a better understanding to cope with, to adapt to, and to become resilient from coastal inundation. In-depth interviews with several key persons who are selected by purposive and snowballing sampling method are employed. These key persons represent the most capable person in each sub-district who poses some important data and information related to coastal inundation either as the individual, household members, or community organization members. The scope of area observation is limited to six sub-districts which adjacent to the coast in the North Pekalongan District. This research employs inductive approach and manual coding technique. The research demonstrates that social-ecological resilience will likely enhance in a community which is capable of nurturing flexible networking. Such networking has made it possible for important information, novel knowledge and practical tools and solutions spread over in the community. These are key elements that allow new transformative pathways occur. However, there is various community capacities with different achievement on transformative pathways which need to be engage on the future empowerment initiatives. Only few community of Kandang Panjang Sub-district come to short term resilience due to their awareness on establishing social networking and several actions on environmental quality improvement.

The aim of this study are (1) to assess the damage of settlement due to lahar flood in study area, (2) to analyze the damage of settlement and (3) to analyze the allocated space of settlement development based on classification of damage settlement. Methods that used in this study are GPS Tracking to know the distribution of lahar flood, classification of damage settlement based on predetermined criteria and spatial autocorrelation to know the pattern of damage settlement. The result of this study is showing that damage settlement due to lahar flood is not only caused by the house distance to the river but also by the materials of it. The spatial pattern of damage settlement is 0,68 (clustered) for Collapse, 0,62 (clustered) for High Damaged, 1,05(clustered) for Low Damaged, 0,64 (clustered) for Medium Damaged) and 1,21 (clustered) for No Damaged.
