This paper highlights the results of a year-long research, which looked at the food security potentials of agroforestry systems in selected upland communities in the provinces of Nueva Vizcaya, Benguet, and Quezon in the Philippines. It characterized the different agroforestry models and systems practiced by the smallholder farmers and assessed their current state in terms of social, economic, and environmental dimensions. Data gathered through transect mapping and farm visits revealed that majority of smallholder farmers in the research sites practiced agroforestry, but with varied components. Alley cropping and contour planting are the dominant agroforestry systems in Nueva Vizcaya; vegetable-based and coffee-based multistorey system are more common in Benguet, and vegetable-based multistorey systems are widely practiced in Quezon. Meanwhile, the agrobiodiversity assessment indicated that the diversity of agroforestry systems in the three study sites are low to moderate. This implies the need to improve the present agroforestry practices into more diverse systems.

WG2The Oscar M. Lopez Center (OML), together with the Climate Change Commission, announces the release of the Philippine Climate Change Assessment Working Group 2: Impacts, Vulnerabilities and Adaptation report.

Climate change is one of the most serious threats faced by humanity—a multifaceted issue that will be universally felt. As such, it is critical that we better understand how current and future vulnerabilities and sensitivities will impact the different sectors of our society. A firmer grasp on these issues can serve as a guide for climate-smart and timely interventions that can build and further develop our resilience.

This new report, prepared by Filipino Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) authors and other leading scientists and experts in their field of study, presents an assessment of the current understanding of climate change impacts, vulnerabilities, and adaptation in the Philippines. It focuses on critical areas, namely ecosystems, freshwater resources, coastal systems and low-lying areas, agriculture and fisheries, and human health.

The report is the second from the three-volume Philippine Climate Change Assessment series, which synthesizes scientific information from international and local literature in order to provide an assessment of climate change for the Philippines and identify gaps in the scientific literature.
