Abstract:
The Sunda Strait Tsunami in December 2018 has prolonged impact on the welfare of victim’s families. This research aims to analyze factors determining family welfare after 27 month of Sunda Strait tsunami. Research involved 123 families consisted of two groups: refugees who living in shelter F(LS) and non-refugees who living in non shelter (FLNS). Almost two-thirds of the families stated that the impact of the tsunami is still disrupting their work, livelihood, and daily lives. Acceptance and gratitude lead to higher subjective well-being, although objectively, family welfare has not returned to how it was before the tsunami. The results of different tests showed that FLS families (compared to FLNS) had better conditions and the health of their homes as well as their livelihood strategies. The objective welfare of the family is negatively affected by economic pressures, while the subjective welfare of the family is negatively affected by both subjective and objective economic pressures. This research shows the importance of external parties helping the victim’s family to reduce their economic pressure, by providing access and opportunities for family income patterns. Subjective economic pressure is a direct mechanism of disaster disruption to welfare as one of the goals of sustainable development.

Abstract:
Understanding the evolution of farmers’ livelihood strategies (FLS) is crucial for maintaining the sustainable development of farmers’ livelihoods, especially on the arid Loess Plateau, China. This study constructed a novel analytical framework for analyzing the evolution of FLS and the critical influencing factors. Changwu County, an apple cultivation region, was selected as a case study. The results suggest that four types of livelihood strategies (crop-planting, apple-planting, work-oriented, and part-time comprehensive) have emerged since the 1980s. The evolutionary process of leading FLS varies across geographic location. In the loess tableland region and economic fringe region, this evolution followed a progressive path from the crop-planting type to the apple-planting type to the work-oriented type, while in the loess gully region, loess ridge region, and economic core region, FLS jumped directly from the crop-planting type to the work-oriented type. The geographic location, training opportunities, garden area, cultivated land area, production and living materials, loan opportunities, and education level were found to be the critical factors influencing the differentiation and development of FLS. The analytical framework proposed here is also applicable for studying the evolution of FLS in other counties on the Loess Plateau, considering the representativeness of the selected case.
