Abstract: The main purpose of this study is to discuss the sensitivity of farmers living in the Cameron Highlands towards the changing climate. This is a qualitative study in which a focus group discussion was conducted by 4 researchers from Universiti Putra Malaysia with 4 farmers from the Cameron Highlands, Pahang. The Cameron Highlands is one of the main agricultural areas and tourist attractions in Malaysia. However in recent years, the changing climate has brought threats to the environment, ecology and agricultural products, thereby negatively affecting socio-economic aspects relating to farmersin the area. From the analysis performed, it can be confirmed that Cameron Highlands farmers have realized that environmental changes are occurring in the region and also recognize the disastrous impacts that the changing climate is having on their agricultural activities. Based on the findings, it is recommended that the appropriate parties strictly monitor and observe any illegal environment-related activities.
