The study made used of descriptive-correlational method. Instruments used in data gathering were Climate Change Problems Encountered Scale and Climate Change Adaptation Measures Scale. Cluster sampling and quota sampling were used in determining the participants. There were 213 farmers that came from nine barangays at Silang, Cavite. The statistical measures employed were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Pearson-R, spearman rank and point biserial. Based on the findings of the study, it was determined that participants were somewhat problematic in terms of socio-psychological, economics and government problems. This study also showed that participants were somewhat adaptive in terms of human resource, financial resource, and information resource. It also revealed that educational attainment was significantly related to problems encountered while age, gender, civil status, and family size were not significantly related to problems encountered. This also showed that age, gender, educational attainment, civil status, and family size were not significantly related to adaptation measures. The results showed that socio-psychological problems and government were significantly related to adaptation measures while economics as sub-variable of problems encountered is not significantly related to adaptation measures. It was also found out in the study that problems encountered is significantly related to adaptation measures.

2) enumerate the problems encountered of the farmers towards climate change in terms of economic, government and socio-psychological; 3) determine the adaptation measures
of the farmers towards climate change in terms of human resources, financial resources
and information resources; and 4) recognize if there is significant relationship among the following demographic profile and problems encountered of the farmers, demographic profile and the adaptation measures of the farmers and problems encountered and adaptation measures of the farmers.
The study made used of descriptive-correlational method. Instruments used in data gathering were Climate Change Problems Encountered Scale and Climate Change
Adaptation Measures Scale. Cluster sampling and quota sampling were used in
determining the participants. There were 213 farmers that came from nine barangays at Silang, Cavite. The statistical measures employed were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Pearson-R, spearman rank and point biserial.
Based on the findings of the study, it was determined that participants were somewhat problematic in terms of socio-psychological, economics and government problems.

It also revealed that educational attainment was significantly related to problems encountered while age, gender, civil status, and family size were not significantly related to problems encountered. This also showed that age, gender, educational attainment, civil status, and family size were not significantly related to adaptation measures. The results showed that socio-psychological problems and government were significantly related to adaptation measures while economics as sub-variable of problems encountered is not significantly related to adaptation measures.
