Flooding in Jakarta is a frequent disaster. Of the 2, 572 disaster events in Indonesia throughout 2018, floods and cyclones dominated more than half of the events, which made it the most frequent disaster throughout the year. This caused by various factors such as climate change, land subsidence, sea level rise and socio-economic growth. The high population in Jakarta, which reached 10.4 million due to the flow of urbanization in the past 30 years, has also added to the level of vulnerability to disaster risk. Based on secondary data that been studied from the results of previous studies, Jakarta has annual flood patterns and larger 5-year floods such as in 1996, 2002 and 2007. According to the risk assessment of flood exposure published by DKI Jakarta National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) 10.177.570 people are potentially exposed to disasters. Physical losses reached Rp 2, 967, 433 million, and economic losses reached Rp 12, 732 million. This is certainly needed to handle mitigation with well-organized disaster management. For this reason, government intervention is needed to integrate the stakeholders who will contribute. The concept of flood disaster management that is integrated with the role of government in it is expected to be a solution to overcome the problem of flooding that occurs in Jakarta this day, besides that, community participation is also very much needed.
