             abstract = "Natural disasters and finding suitable areas to dispose of 
                         municipal solid waste (MSW) are two major global challenges, both 
                         of which have several influences in the water resources and are 
                         related to climatic change, especially in developing countries 
                         like Brazil. Currently the risk of natural disasters is not 
                         utilized in the process of locating areas to dispose of MSW. This 
                         study, using geographic information system (GIS), analyzed 
                         spatially the susceptibility for landslide and flooding hazards in 
                         MSW disposal sites in S{\~a}o Paulo state, Brazil. The results 
                         showed that more than 90% of sanitary and ditch landfills are 
                         located in null, very low and low hazard classes (P0, P1 and P2). 
                         However, in this remaining 10% of landfills we still have 
                         approximately 55% of the total municipal solid waste disposed into 
                         susceptible areas with middle, high and very high hazard classes 
                         (P3, P4 and P5). This shows that S{\~a}o Paulo MSW disposal sites 
                         need more attention and control to prevent the occurrence of 
                         landslide/flooding and consequently the mitigation of 
                         environmental, economic and social impacts. In addition, the use 
                         of GIS is proved to be an appropriate tool to carry out this type 
                         of analysis, so we recommend that the risk of natural disasters 
                         should be taken into consideration in the process of finding 
                         landfill areas. Mainly, because, there is a tendency for extreme 
                         weather events to increase causing more flood and landslide events 
                         and consequently contributing to water scarcity and water
