Indonesia is a vulnerable developing country due to natural disasters, particularly floods. These disasters hit Indonesia commonly during the rainy season. It resulted in adverse effects on human life, economy and environment. The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between empirical and theoretical studies on flood management in the perspective of governance and capacity building. The research method that used is the study of literatures and the Focus Group Discussion (FGD). The research site is flood-prone areas, which is 4 (four) regencies in East Java Province, Indonesia. All of them have a high flood-prone index. In conclusion, sustainable flood management requires a multi-stakeholder involvement and participation of communities simultaneously. Flood management should be done with a systematic approach, and synergy of the various parties in efforts to cope with the disaster. Therefore, strengthening the sense of crisis, commitment, role and collective responsibility, and continuity of cooperation / collaboration in the context of governance network and capacity building is needed to maintain the sustainability of effective flood management.
