Abstract

Adaptation strategis for climate change at the mountain region are often generalize using the low land result and therefore, unsuccessful implemented. Among the key factor are the lack of understanding in the differences of diversity between mountain ecosystems. Thus, the climate changes impact are graver in degree at mountain ecosystem compare to the lowland area with the same list of factors. Field observation, data collection and field interview among local communities at mountain region using Rapid Integrated and ecosystem-based assessment of climate change Vulnerability and Adaptation (RIVVA) identified the evidences of climate change impact includes significant rise of temperature, more frequent natural disaster, extreme weather hot or cold and longer drought season. Adaptation towards climate change among the mountain communities are include diversifying their plant and using environmental friendly pesticide and yet, this approach still unsufficient to support their livelihood. Strategic adaptation comprises of information desimination, capacity building and installation of weather monitoring system at several location at this mountain region can prolong and improves livelihood of people in this mountain region. The adaptation strategies also seek the better role play by government, local stakeholders and local communities to ensure the success implementation and application particularly at mountain region.
