Abstract

According to the Asian Development Bank, Indonesia is the world's third most climate-risk country in 2021. Indonesia was identified as a country highly exposed to climate change impacts, including floods and extreme temperatures. Community-based adaptation (CbA) is an emerging concept in climate change management policies, both governmental and private. CbA provides adaptation to climate change by combining local knowledge, conditions, and community needs. Therefore, each CbA implementation has its opportunities and challenges. This study aims to understand the opportunities and challenges of CbA through implemented examples in Indonesia and other countries. The method used in this study is the literature review method. The results show that CbA can potentially create a climate-resilient society. However, there are also some challenges such as conflicts of interest and expensive financing. Studies on the effectiveness of CbA are needed to achieve better results in climate change adaptation in the future.
