Natural Disasters and Vulnerability: Evidence from the 1997 Forest Fires in Indonesia

Abstract

Few studies have attempted to investigate the link between poverty and vulnerability with respect to natural disasters. By applying a utility model to panel data from Indonesia that brackets a major forest fire, this paper estimates and analyzes households’ vulnerability in both total consumption and food consumption. We find that households with a high degree of exposure to smoke from the fires were more vulnerable in total consumption than households with lower exposure, but that they were no more vulnerable in food consumption.

Keywords: vulnerability; natural disasters; fire; Indonesia
