Flood has become a threat in the northern part of Jakarta due to sea level rise, land subsidence, and extreme rainfall as impacts of climate changes. Muara Angke is a delta in North Jakarta surrounded by Java Sea in the north, Asin River in the east, and Adem River in the west, so that several times of flooding inundate this settlement. To overcome flooding, communities have been doing housing adjustment as adaptation strategy in order to remain living in this settlement. Housing adjustment has been a phenomenon recently to avoid flooding. The objective of this research is to identify techniques and designs of housing adjustment as adaptation strategy in flood prone settlement.
