The danger of landslides still threatens several areas in Indonesia, including in Kuningan Regency. One of the areas that is prone to landslides is located in Kuningan Regency, which is part of several districts in West Java which have a high level of landslide events. This area has a relatively small area compared to regencies in other West Java regions. As many as 28 sub-districts with an area of approximately 32,922.586 hectares or around 27.5 percent of the district's area are potential areas for landslides. Based on the geological and geographical conditions, the area in Kuningan Regency has a high level of vulnerability to landslides. High rainfall is the dominant cause that affects landslides in the study area. There are points where landslides occur due to steep slopes, soil types that are prone to erosion and are very sensitive to humid/wet rainfall and geological conditions. With this landslide vulnerability map, it is hoped that it can be used as an anticipation to avoid areas that are prone to landslides. Mitigation efforts from the local government in tackling the risk of landslides by designing environmental arrangements such as building retaining walls on slopes and closing rails that have the potential for landslides to occur.
