Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Climate change has become an issue that is hotly discussed by all countries in the world. Indonesia is included in it and has committed to adapt and mitigate this issue, and specifically set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29% from business as usual levels. One of the priority areas for climate change adaptation and mitigation is Jambi Province. Floods and droughts are a few examples of the impacts of climate change. In addition, waste management and inaccurate waste are one of the factors that trigger climate change and public health problems. As an adaptation and mitigation effort on these problems, it is necessary to strengthen and disseminate community resilience to face climate change. Furthermore, community knowledge and skills capacity building for climate change adaptation and mitigation is carried out. Activities are carried out in efforts to adapt and mitigate climate change by holding several activities. These activities include socialization of strengthening community resilience to climate change, strengthening village policies in the context of climate change mitigation, mentoring and training in rainwater harvesting and water saving, tree planting and urban farming, and strengthening the concept of "zero waste"in waste or solid waste management. The purpose of these activities is to provide assistance and training to communities in Tangkit Village, Sungai Gelam District, Muaro Jambi Regency, Jambi Province to increase the capacity of knowledge and skills in adaptation and mitigation efforts to create a green village.
