Farmers as the producers of food are one of vulnerable community related to climate change. Therefore assessing climate change impact on farmers’ community is necessary not only for their living but also for our food security. However, effective responses to climate change require at least community support and, ideally, genuine community participation. Sedayu is a village (450-550 m asl) with normal rainfall about 2500 mm/year and more than 30% has land slope about 8%; Sedayu had a possible risk of flash flood. Efforts to apply climate change adaptation are needed since 76.25 % of the population is farmers with paddy, cocoa and coffee as their main products. Decreasing disaster risk effectively and planning for handling emergency situation was started with analyzing the community condition physically and socially. The community participated with giving information and data needed. Through some trainings and using tools they were able to discuss and analyze the data and eventually formed the Local Resilience Action Plan (LRAP) which will be part of Regency Medium Term Development Plan. This paper reported the analysis of the village condition related to the possibility of disaster risk caused by climate and the action plan as an effort to climate change adaptation. Keywords— action plan, adaptation, climate change, farmers, disaster
