Natural disaster management programs aim to reduce risks, protect the community, and minimize the impact of natural disasters in the area. The purpose of this research is to describe and analyze the effectiveness of sustainable natural disaster management programs in the North Kalimantan Province. The effectiveness of this program is very important for achieving the goals that have been previously set.. A qualitative approach was used in this study. Data collection techniques were conducted through in-depth interviews with key informants who played a role in natural disaster management programs, observation of stakeholder activities, and documentation studies. The research data sources consist of primary and secondary data. Data analysis techniques included data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and drawing conclusions. Results show that North Kalimantan Province’s natural disaster management program has been running effectively on the dimensions of achieving goals, where the budget allocated follows the existing realization. As for integration in program implementation, it is not well established because of the lack of rehearsals for disaster management as well as adaptation to implementation, which is difficult due to topographical conditions that are still difficult to reach.
