Abstract

This research was carried out to learning as an everyday of farmer’s experiences using indigenous knowledge practices to adapt to climate in sustainable local development. The effectiveness of valuable indigenous knowledge has contributed in reducing vulnerability of people living in flooded areas in in the community in the context of climate change. However, this knowledge has not been specifically recorded and stored appropriately to pass on to later people and share widely in the community.The study proposes some solutions to preserve the most valuable indigenous knowledge so that people can actively adapt to climate change.
