Abstract

The effectiveness of adaptation strategies adopted by farmers depends on farmers’ perceptions about climate change. Understanding of the perceptions and adaptations of farmers in farming activities in response to climate change will provide insights to sustain vegetable production. On the other hand, there are various obstacles that challenge farmers’ adaptation to climate change. Hence, this study aims to determine the perceptions and adaptations carried out by organic vegetable farmers to reduce the negative impacts of climate change, and the obstacles they have to face. The survey was conducted from February to August 2018 by involving 90 organic vegetable farmers in Central Java, Indonesia. Spearman correlation analysis was used to analyze the relationship between perception and adaptation of farmers in dealing with climate change. The analysis shows that most of organic vegetable farmers are aware of climate change and are trying to implement more strategies to reduce the negative impacts of climate change. Farmers’ perceptions about climate change correlate with the adaptations they implemented. Organic farmers are faced with constraints of limited funds to adapt to climate change. This study recommends that relevant stakeholders need to increase farmers’ perceptions and adaptations to reduce the negative impacts of climate change by increasing the accessibility of information and training on climate change and its impacts.
