The Greater Pekalongan Area on the north coast of Java,
comprised of Pekalongan City and Regency, is frequently affected by severe coastal and tidal
flooding causing loss of income, assets, and productive land for the 1.2 million residents. Mercy Corps Indonesia, Diponegoro University, and Bogor Agricultural Institute, as part of the
Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance program, conducted a climate risk and impact assessment of
the Kupang River watershed and coastal areas of Pekalongan City and Pekalongan Regency,
with the aim to support local governments to understand the underlying drivers, risks, and
impacts of flooding; and inform policy development. The assessment consists of a hazard,
vulnerability, and risk analysis; and an economic and non-economic impact analysis of coastal
and tidal flood events.
