Over the past decades, flood control has been providing the rationale for evictions in Jakarta. Underlying this study is a set of notions where the eviction plan would bring up uncertainty to their commons: the risk of possible destructions of their commons, the uncertainty of livelihood, or the dubiousness of securing a decent amount of compensation. Considering that, this study is trying to identify the scope of commons and commoning in long-envisioned yet unimplemented eviction of RW 04 Bidaracina, Jakarta, as well as to understand its relation to resilience in several forms. We conducted interviews to understand the aspirations of the residents of RW 04 Bidaracina to answer the questions of this research, which concern mainly on how the notions of commoning are manifested in a community expecting a rather uncertain eviction. The result corresponds favourably with existing studies on kampung as urban commons.
