Abstract. This study aims to determine the distribution of flood locations and the level of
socio-economic vulnerability of the community and total losses due to flood disasters in
Lampung, Indonesia. Climate change causes extreme weather. Thus, the rainfall increases
from the previous year. This study utilizes the Livelihood Vulnerability Index (LVI) and
Livelihood Vulnerability Index – the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (LVI-IPCC)
to determine socio-economic vulnerability. The losses due to flood were analyzed by the
ECLAC method (the Economic Commission for Latin America Caribbean). The level of
vulnerability of the Lampung community to flood is expected to be classified as high based on
the LVI and LVI-IPCC scales. The community suffered economic losses due to flood that
occurred in Lampung.
