Extreme weather events related to climate change in the future are likely to increase a number and scale of disasters. In order to prepare for these changes and the impacts they will have on natural systems and human communities, it is need “climate change adaptation”. Understandably, much attention has been focused to date on “climate change mitigation,” or efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere and help slow the rate of climate change. Climate change adaptation and mitigation are related, and both are important for local government because adaptation to climate change needs to be on going. Successful adaptation will require not only good information about climate change, and prioritization of actions, but also the ability to implement responses and modify hose responses over time. This paper summarizes some literatures to demonstrate that there are some different inclusive partnership approaches that have been taken to conduct mitigation and adaptation planning in East Kalimantan. Those approaches of climate change mitigation and adaptation planning provide better understanding on the usage of planning in any different levels of mitigation and adaptation and its limitation.
