    ABSTRACT Palembang as the Capital of South Sumatera has many rivers—branches of the largest one, Musi—and many swamps. This causes its settlement typology divided into three: water settlement (Rumah Rakit), land settlement (Rumah Limas and Rumah Gudang), and swamp settlement (Rumah Panggung). The government planned to build thousand houses for minor citizens in this land of swamps, but it didn’t work ‘caused lack of research. Then they just gave the land for free. And this caused even more problems: the land becomes damage because people don’t understand how to build synergized-to-environment settlements. Whereas, this swamp actually could go along the climate change: when in summer they can be planted with rice plant, and in rainy days they can be a fishpond. Purpose of this paper is as a study to New Settlement in this 90 hectares Swamp Area, for such a comprehensive guideline for the government builds next project. In hope it will be more ecosystem-concerned, uses a light and friendly materials, effective and efficient, also comfortable for its residents. This paper which entitled “An Adaptation to Climate Change Swamp Settlements Built for a Minor Citizens,” using economic, environmental, and social approaches; will be held by survey and desk research methods. Economic approach is a financial aspect used to see if the settlement properly conducted; environmental approach will see how far the built effects to environment so can be anticipated; while social approach will see how this effects to society. Keywords: comprehensive built, ecosystem, eco-friendly, effective and efficient.
