Abstract: This research has the aim to describe the organizational capabilities of the Local Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) Padang in efforts to reduce disaster risk in Padang City. This study uses qualitative research methods with a descriptive approach. Data was collected through interviews with informants, field observations and documentation studies. This research was conducted at the BPBD Padang office. While the research informants were determined using purposive sampling techniques. The results of this study indicate that the capability of BPBD Padang is still not optimal. This can be seen from the problems encountered in the field, such as the coordination function carried out by the BPBD Padang, which is very weak, the lack of human resources, facilities and infrastructure that are inadequate and the budget is still very minimal.
