Abstract: Community Based Total Sanitation (STBM) has successfully contributed to the acceleration of sustainable rural sanitation progress in Indonesia. The fact that many communities in Indonesia live in disaster prone areas may affect that progress. The study aimed to review the sustainability of Open Defecation Free (ODF) status of selected communities in the eastern part of Indonesia. These communities have experienced disasters during and after STBM implementation. Despite the study finding that the selected communities have not fully achieved ODF, the majority of households have proven that they could maintain their ODF behaviour even after experiencing the disasters (27 out of 30 respondents in each communities). The factors that enable sustainability of ODF behaviour, in regards to disaster resilient community, are disaster risk awareness of communities, having coping mechanism in place and the ability of the communities to build back better and reduce vulnerability.
