Keywords:knowledge, coastal community, sea level rise, adaptation strategies, climate change
Coastal community knowledge of sea level rise will help the community to better adapt to the environment. Coastal communities are more susceptible to sea level rise as the distance of their placement is near the beach. This article aims to examine the level of knowledge of the coastal community in Kuala Selangor on the rise of the sea level especially in planning the adaptation strategy. This study uses quantitative methods of interviews and face-to-face questionnaires over 80 respondents and random sampling purposes. The results showed that community knowledge about sea level rise was at moderate level while the average community knowledge on adaptation strategy of sea level rise was low. The implications of the study clearly show that the communities need to improve their knowledge on sea level rise and climate change as well as adaptation strategies towards the impact of sea level rise.
