Flood is a natural disaster induced by climate change that resulted in the losses of lives, damages to property, and disrupts the daily activities of local community. Thus, the flood mitigation measures are developed to reduce the impact of flood in our country. The aim of this paper is; to propose IF-DEMATEL method and deal with the uncertainty of input data set of flood mitigation measures, and to validate it using sensitivity analysis. Here, this method is used for flood mitigation measures comprise drainage improvements, barriers, wet flood proofing, dry flood proofing, elevation, relocation, and acquisition. A numerical example from the flood control project selection proposed by a researcher which was adopted to show the applicability of the proposed method. The result shows that the flood mitigation measures are placed based on their priority. Although the rank of flood mitigation measures is sensitive to changes based on the weight of criteria but the best measures is remaining unchanged.
