In Demak Regency, abrasion and robs flood have adversely affected the farmers’ aquaculture ponds since the past decades. The changing coastal environment and lack of knowledge to adapt in aquaculture management led to declining production that hampered the community’s resilience in the future. To help the farmers to thrive, an initiative called Coastal Field School (CFS) was implemented in 10 villages in Demak.
This paper discusses the CFS impact on the farmers’ knowledge change using the indicators of farmers’ program participation level, pre-test and post-test result to determine the knowledge improvement, aquaculture management technique, and productivity rate.
