Climate change is marked by frequent occurrences of drought and huge waves, which affect agriculture and fisheries. These sectors are the major means of livelihood of the majority of households in Karimunjawa Islands. This article assesses the capacity of farmers and fishermen to adapt and resiliently manage the risks of climate change. A case study method is used here to collect information on how communities learn from past experience, knowledge and efforts, to enhance understanding for their continued existence/survival, adaptation or tenacity in the face of climate change. A number of key informants were interviewed thoroughly, chosen from purposeful and snowballing samples. Key informants were those who were regarded as people with knowledge ability about data and information appertaining to climate change in Karimunjawa, as individuals, heads or members of a household or a community. The results of research also show that intervention that aimed to build resilience of the farmers’ and fishermen’s households was directed towards increased household incomes, diversification of the means of livelihood and enhanced food security. Tourism development that involves the community contributes greatly to increasing household income and diversifying livelihoods.In order to step up resilience to climate change, there was variation among households in adopting a combination of the act of independent adaptation such as restraining the cost of living, modifying food consumption, and relying on social networks.
