This study examines residents' perceived causes and problems emanating from climate change and evaluates their responses to observed evidences in Akinyele LGA - a peri-urban area of Ibadan, Nigeria with rapid urban encroachment where varieties of farming practices and other urban based activities are found. A total of 300 structured questionnaires were randomly distributed to residents in eight most rural of the twelve political wards. Data collected include socio-economic attributes of households, available infrastructure, rainfall and temperature parameters. Perceived evidences are increasing heat wave, fluctuating days of rainfall, loss of soil fertility and poor harvest and hence, poor cash-flow and physiological discomfort. Results from Descriptive Chi-Square show no spatial variations in awareness and responses to impacts emanating. However, tree planting and forest conservation, land use planning and re-introduction of neighbourhood parks were suggested.
