Climate change has become a global issue these last decades. Its impact affects to various aspects of human life. Uncertainty of dry and wet season that bring about losses on agriculture sector is also the impact of climate change. However, resilience to climate change is necessary for farmers. This research aimed to identify efforts that have been done by farmers to reduce the climate change risk. Location of the research was focused on Sentolo District, Kulon Progo Regency. Sentolo was central area of agriculture in Kulon Progo Regency. Field survey and in-depth interview methods were used to collect data. To access the community resilience to climate change, the research used parameters of knowledge about climate change, capability to access technology of weather forecast, income aside from agriculture, and willingness to participate in agricultural insurance. Result shows several farmers have understood about climate change that being happened currently and have been utilizing the technology of weather forecast to run their agricultural work. Willingness of the farmers to participate in agricultural insurance is still lack, and only a few percentages have income aside from agriculture, such as from cattle breeding and trading. Nonetheless, the efforts of farmers necessarily must be improved to actualize farmers resilience against climate change.
