landslide, flood, drought, and tidal flood have somehow become seasonal customer for occurring in
Pekalongan Regency. This research aimed to prepare the mapping of disaster risk in order to strengthen the
efforts in reducing disaster risk in Pekalongan Regency. The research method applied in this research refers to
