Abstract

The fourth assessment of IPCC report (2007) mentioned that changes in sea level on average during the 20th century was 0.17 meters (with range from 0.12 to 1.22 m) and it is projected to increase to 0.59 meters(with range from 0.18 to 0.59 m) by 2100. Coastal communities have put efforts in adapting to changes that occur in coast.However, climate change also causes changes in dynamic patterns of the coast including changes in sea level dramatically. This paper highlights a case study in Kaliwlingi Village, one ofvulnerable village located in Brebes District,north coast of Central Java Province. The estuary of Pemali River lies on this village and it is an area that experience heavy tidal flood and abrasion. These problems have changed community livelihoods, from fishermen or fish farmers to unskilled labors. This paper argues that livelihood change should not lower local community income. In responding to this, it is essential to restore local wisdom in the community that has been eroded.Local wisdom, that emphasis on harmonious relation within community and between community and nature, needs to build resilience. Resilience is capacity of a system to absorb shocks or distrubances, reduce stress, and to recover towards equilibrium state after disturbance (Holling, 1973). It is an adaptation within a system.This paperdescribes how the community of Kaliwlingi Village adapt to the climate change that affects to their social economic conditions.
