Program kampung iklim (Proklim) was launched by the Government to increase the implementation of the climate change adaptation strategy. The decision to adopt an adaptation strategy is influenced by farmers’ perceptions of climate change. This study aims to determine the level and compare the awareness of the climate change and perceptions of the climate change risks, among farmers from the Proklim and non-Proklim locations. The study was conducted in 3 sub-districts that have Proklim location, in Sleman Regency. By using the simple random sampling method, a total of 112 farmers were selected from the Proklim and non-Proklim locations in the same proportion. The results showed that the Proklim and non-Proklim locations were dominated by farmers with an awareness of climate change and perceptions of climate change risks at a moderate level. Other findings showed that farmers from the Proklim location had a higher awareness of climate change compared with non-Proklim farmers, with a difference of awareness of 6.44%. Perceptions of climate change risk among farmers from the two locations didn’t show significant differences.
