ABSTRACT

This study examines how disaster vulnerability affects disaster resilience, focusing on the elderly, recipients of the basic livelihood security benefit, the disabled, registered foreigners and multi-cultural families as disaster vulnerable population. The disaster management budget of a local government was used as a surrogate variable for disaster resilience. The data collected from 226 basic local governments in five years from 2013 to 2017 were analyzed by PCSE and GMM. The results show that the proportion of persons with disabilities consistently and significantly affected the size of disaster management budget, while the proportion of the elderly population had a positive effect at the significance level of 10%. However, disaster-vulnerable populations did not have a significant effect. Based on the result, this study provided some implications on how disaster resilience is related to the disabled and elderly and how to manage the disaster management budget to support disaster vulnerable populations.
