Climate change and its effects are unavoidable now. While researches about it grow, warning the community for potential hazards related to climate change is urgent. A study about hazard risk in Gebang Village, Lampung Province was done for that purpose. The investigation was conducted by analyzing local climate trends, local physical environment and community vulnerability and capacity. Different methods were applied for each aspect: rainfall trends were analyzed using statistical methods; the physical environment used maps and GIS methods; community vulnerability and capacity were assessed with participatory methods through interviews. The results showed that rainfall is not varied so much to create natural hazards but combined with physical environments, flash flood might happen in this area. Since this area is located in coastal line, sea level rise could also be a problem. Bad environment, limited health facilities and low income made the vulnerability of this village high while low education, unbalanced demographic condition and non functioned local government situation made the community capacities in handling hazards are quite low. These results should be a base for better development and mentoring plan conducted by the district government and hopefully could also be used as a recommended evaluation method for Lampung Provincial government. Keywords: climate change, vulnerability, capacity, hazards
