Sundarbans region of India is one of the places in India where farming community face extreme weather events like floods, cyclone in almost every year. Adhering to only one farming enterprise may not secure sustainable livelihood of farming community. Moreover, perception of farming communities towards extreme weather should be analyzed for formulating future developmental projects in Sundarbans region. The study was conducted in two blocks of Sundarbans region of West Bengal by involving 150 respondents who were practicing three different enterprise combinations. It was found from the study that, respondents who were practicing the animal husbandry and horticulture enterprise combination had a high level of perception score as well as medium to high level of livelihood security score. On the contrary, animal husbandry and crop farming enterprise combination gave the lowest score pertaining to a livelihood security level as well as perception level. From the study, it was observed that livelihood security scores and perception level scores of the respondents were highly correlated.
