Climate change will continue to be a major issue to achieve sustainability in agriculture, which makes adaptations of resilient climate policies and technology to be necessary in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Discourse analysis is used to understand how farmers perceive climate change and how their behaviour is understood. Discourses are particularly how language is used in different situations. Interviews were conducted in April 2021 with 3 subjects in dairy farming. Five discourses were identified as important for this study to how the selected farmers perceived climate change policies and adaptation of technology to mitigate emissions: Money, Technology, Human Responsibility, Environmental Citizenship and Questioning. Each discourse contributes to understanding how future adaptation behaviour can be in approaching climate change.
