Despite the significant role of global leadership on climate change, the effectiveness of local government leadership outcome in the developing countries has been neglected in the literature. Applying the Adaptive Capacity Vulnerability Theory, this paper examines the relationships among climate change belief (CCB), perceived local government leadership (PLGL), resilience to climate change (RCC), and both the mediation and moderation roles of PLGL on the relationship between CCB and RCC. From the 200 riverbank erosion victims in Bangladesh, the results suggest that CCB, RCC and PLGL have significant positive relationships among each other. However, PLGL shows a partial mediation on the relationship between BCC and RCC but no moderation impact to demonstrate effective local government leadership influence among the victims.
