A series of large scale disasters has long impacted Indonesia, and the tsunami in 2004 hit the hardest. The Indonesian government has indeed accelerated its policies and activities to be better prepared and to manage the impacts of disasters. Immediately after the 2004 tsunami the Hyogo Framework for Action was adopted globally. In Indonesia a series of laws and regulations were enacted, most notably the Disaster Management Law in 2007. However, some challenges are still remaining for implementation at the local level due to the capacity of local government. This paper examines how local governments try to mainstream risks into their urban planning and policies. The cities of Semarang and Padang in Indonesia have been selected as case studies to represent coastal cities that are very vulnerable to coastal disasters. The analysis is conducted through literature review and semi-structured interviews with city government and non-government officers.
