The growing number of urban residents in the world urges some governments including Indonesia to provide an ideal housing and settlement by considering climate change factors that impact the occurrence of floods in their urban areas. This study aims to integrate housing and settlement planning within the Indonesian Urban Masterplan (RTRW-Kota) with flood mitigation system by identifying spatial planning criteria related to housing and settlement planning and disaster mitigation within the Indonesian regulations. The criteria are then incorporated to integrated criteria in the modelling suitability area for housing and settlement planning. The method is using content analysis to identify these criteria and then model them in GIS environment. This study found 10 standard criteria for housing and settlement planning with disaster management, 7 related to spatial planning and other 3 related to disaster mitigation respectively.
