Changes in land use cannot be avoided by the increasing number of people in need of settlement land. Studies on environmental carrying capacity and supporting capacity need to be undertaken to obtain an overview of land capability in support of human livelihoods that occupy the living environment adequately. The research location is in Garang River Basin covering 3 administrative areas, namely Semarang Regency, Kendal Regency and Semarang City, with 52,965.199 ha of catchment area. Analysis of carrying capacity and environmental capacity of Garang River Basin stated that the environmental support capacity of Garang River Basin for settlement land from segment 1-5 is medium status (DDLb>1), segment 6 and 7 is bad status (DDLb>1). The carrying capacity of agricultural land in all segments is exceeded or deficit (DDLp<1).
