Abstract
Aceh tsunami disaster in 2004 caused damage to agricultural land in Aceh Besar Regency. Meanwhile the post-disaster development has caused migration of people to the regency, causing a greater pressure on agricultural land. The study aimed to evaluate the land carrying capacity in tsunami-affected areas in Aceh Besar Regency in 2005-2016. Data including rice production, harvested area, and population size in 2005-2016 were obtained from the Central Bureau of Statistics of Aceh Besar Regency. The level of land carrying capacity was approached by the ratio of per capita rice harvested area to the land area to achieve self-sufficiency. The results showed that one sub-district which were characterized as agricultural areas achieved a recovery on class I of land carrying capacity in 2009 to 2012. A total of two sub-districts are included to class II of land carrying capacity and four sub-districts are included to class III of land carrying capacity. It can be concluded that the land carrying capacity in tsunami affected areas in Aceh Besar Regency experiences partial recovery, that is on agricultural areas.
