    Abstract

    Due to is geographical and socio-economic circumtance, the majority of regions in Indonesia are considered to be vulnerable to potential impact of climate change. Therefore, the option for adaptation mensure at national and regional levels are rapidly emerging as central issues to debate arround policy responces to climate change. In order to prioritize, design and implement intervention to adapt to climate change, it is essential to adopt a coherent set of approach, framework and method for examining vulnerability and adaptive capacity. Many Vulnerability studies while effective in making awareness to the possible effect of climate change, have limited effectiveness in providinglocal scale guidance on adaptation. Methods and tools for supporting the process of building adaptive capacity at the provincial/local level are different from the one used for assessing impacts, vulnerability and adaptation on national and global scales. To Effectively formulate adaptation strategy at the province level, it is proposed to apply "meso level-multi sectoral approach" which means assessing vulnerability at the meso-level but considering the multi sectoral impacts of climate change i.e. water and ocean many practical adaptation strategies will be applied at a regional rather than sectoral scale and climate change impacts vary from region (DEH Australia, 2005). The Lombak island was selected as a case study area because it represents small islands which could experience harmfull impact from climate change. Lombok Island is part of Nusa Tenggara Barat Province which has already prepared Provincial Action Plan for Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change. It shows serios commitment of its provincial goverment in preparing its society to face impact of climate change.
