English Abstract

This study presents a process of constructing Social Vulnerability Index of flood (SVIoF) in Taiwan districts. The purpose of this study is to enrich the information for disaster mitigation or reduction in decision making process of official disaster manager or commander. The study includes several steps: (1)Identifying important social dimensions for calculation of SVIoF, such as a) maximum loss of households property; b) household resistance to flood disaster (self-protection of individual); c) households self-recovery ability (resilience and adjustment). (2) Collecting important variables to represent each dimension. (3)Standardizing those collected variables; (4)composite variables of each area into a SVIoF score, the result shows that the most vulnerable areas in Taiwan are east counties includes Taitung (台東縣) and Hualien (花蓮縣). the least vulnerable county is middle west county-Chiayi (嘉義縣). (5) application of SVIoF in Chiayi county. Using GIS to map the SVIoF score geographically and overlaying SVIoF layer and the inundation potential layer to produce the flood risk map. In the conclusion, this research constructs an index to estimate social vulnerability and provides social information to complete the whole idea of risk management. The commander has no longer made decisions only by physical situations (meteorology and rainfall) but also considers the social circumstances to modify his decisions or policies.
