Abstract

This study investigated housing adaptation strategies assumed by the inhabitants of a coastal settlement in Muara Angke, North Jakarta, which has been repeatedly suffering from flood due to incessant land subsidence, sea level rise, high tide, heavy rainfall, and river sedimentation. Initially a wetland dominated by mangroves, Muara Angke in 1970s was then developed by government of DKI Jakarta as a new settlement to accommodate the fishery community members in North Jakarta. Information on strategies of housing adjustment taken up by 120 purposefully selected households are collected through field observation and direct interview methods. The research findings showed that housing adaptation strategies adopted by the inhabitants of Muara Angke in response to flood and land subsidence are as follows: 1) raising the ground-floor level, 2) adding the ceiling-height to anticipate further land subsidence, 3) expanding floor areas vertically up to 2 or 3 storey, 4) replacing floor materials for easy maintenance, and 5) Utilizing light-weight ceiling and roofing materials for easy dismantle and re-assemble.
