Highlights

  • The farming households’ adaptive capacity level to flooding is generally moderate.
  • The low adaptive capacity level of farming households is mainly caused by low level of information resources, financial resources, and livelihood diversity.
  • The decision to practice adaptation and the number of adaptation practices used are not associated with the adaptive capacity level.
  • Improving the livelihood diversity and physical resources of farming households in Mabitac, Philippines will significantly contribute to an increased adaptive capacity level
