Soil Liquefaction is a phenomenon of loss of strength of the granural soil layers due to increased pore water stress caused by earthquake shocks. Soil liquefaction can cause material and life damage if occurs in the developed area. Kulon Progo Regency based on the Atlas of Liquefaction Susceptibility Zones in 2019, has high susceptibility zones, which has the potential for flow liquefaction, lateral spreading, vertical displacement, and sand boil. This study aims to assess the exposure and loss index in liquefaction hazard zone based on the characteristics of land use and social demographic. The exposure index is obtained from overlaying between susceptibility map and liquefaction exposure variables, when the loss assessment is done by simulating the losses in several earthquake moment magnitude scenarios. Study results show that high exposure surrounding the residential zone in the south of the Wates Urban Area and the construction location of the Yogyakarta International Airport. There are settlement areas potentially affected by lateral spreading in Glagah, Karangwuni, Banaran, and Karangsewu Villages. While the results of the loss assessment show that transport infrastructure and residential buildings are the most affected objects when liquefaction phenomena occur due to the earthquake. Managing the expansion of settlement area through zoning regulation and technical engineering approach is needed to reduce losses due to future liquefaction phenomenon.
