The flood hit Kampung Pulo region in almost every year. This disaster has caused the evacuation of some residents in weeks. Given the frequency of occurrence is quite high in the region it is necessary to do a study to support disaster risk reduction. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of flooding that occurred in Kampung Pulo in terms of topography, river conditions, characteristics of the building, and socioeconomic conditions. Methods of study include geomorphology analysis, identification of areas of stagnant, the estimated number of people exposed, the estimation of socio-economic conditions of the population, as well as determining the location of an evacuation. The data used is high-resolution remote sensing imagery is QuickBird and SPOT-6. It also used the results of aerial photography using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Aerial photography was conducted on January 18, 2013, which is when the serious flooding that inundated almost the entire region of Kampung Pulo. Information risk level of buildings and population resulting from this study were obtained by using GIS. The results obtained from this study can be used to develop recommendations and strategies for flood mitigation in Kampung Pulo, Jakarta. One of them is the determination of the location for vertical evacuation plan in the affected areas.
