講演タイトル: Tourists’ Risk Perception and Preparedness to Potential Tsunami: Case Study from Sanur Area, Denpasar, Bali (旅行者のリスク認知と懸念される津波に対する備え:バリ島デンパサール,サヌア地域におけるケーススタディ)
講演概要:This research is part of a larger research umbrella SANREST which stands for Sanur Resilience to Tsunami. Sanur is one of a popular beach areas and tourist resorts in Bali. Despite it’s attraction for tourism sector, some tourism areas in Bali are prone to tsunami disasters. Therefore, it is important to assess the resilience of communities, tourists and local government to tsunami disasters. Currently, only limited literature explores tourist’s understanding (perception) and their preparedness towards disasters. In this particular session, we seek for the information how tourists understand about potential disasters that might occur in the tourism areas. We explore and apply common indicators used when assessing risk perception and preparedness to disasters. In general, tourists have had information or exposed to previous disasters. Nonetheless, we found that only a small number of tourists have prepared information about the potential disasters in Sanur and what to do in case disaster occurs. This implies that equiping enough information and preparedness measures would be very important to ensure tourists’ safety.
