Indonesia is marked by historical and contemporary migrations associated with changing regimes of environmental governance and access to land and livelihood resources. Nowhere is this more in evidence than in the city of Bandar Lampung on Sumatra’s southern-most tip, where waves of migration from many different parts of the Indonesian archipelago have created a diverse socio-ecological urban landscape. In this chapter, we examine how historical migration, and the social geographies these forms of mobility have produced, have shaped vulnerability to flooding and responses to flood events. The chapter adopts a political ecology framework through which we explore the ways historical migrations prompted by precarity and conflict in other places have on the one hand shaped contemporary vulnerability to flooding, but at the same time, have enabled the maintenance of extra-local ties that provide capabilities for dealing with flood hazards among at least some of the urban population
