Identification of Potential Drought-Prone Villages Due to El Niño

Key Message

  • The El Niño phenomenon in 2023 is expected to have a long drought impact in Indonesia, where indirect impacts include food availability and clean water insecurity.
  • Identification of villages affected by El Niño needs to be done by considering components other than drought levels but other factors such as food security, availability of clean water sources, and stunting risk.
  • The application of the drought vulnerability index can help identify villages potentially affected by El Niño.
  • Matching IPKK data with P3KE data can show village characteristics, thus helping the government in determining El Nino anticipation policies.
  • El Niño anticipation interventions can be carried out by considering the distance of the village to the nearest location of the water source.
