The paper consists of the literature review and discussions that concerns the built environment, flooding, disaster risk management including resiliency and sustainability theory. The objective of this paper is to review any relevant works of literature in reducing the flooding impacts to the built environment in Malaysia, at the same time describing any potential improvements and current measures to handle the aftermath of flooding. Systematic literature review using reference material such as books, scholarly journals, previous studies, articles, and websites is carried out. The author also searched further for the references of the articles that were retrieved and repeated the process until a point where no new relevant articles come to light. The paper is significant in three ways; i) reducing the flood impacts by raising knowledge ii) providing responsibility measures in reducing flood from different perspectives iii) preparing ways to lessen the impacts of future flooding threats. The key findings of the paper are; a) Through knowledge application, the practice of reducing flooding impacts could be enhanced b) Flooding management should be carried out earlier before flooding attack but also remains later the event c) Disaster management plans must get ready to face with any uncertainties.
