The working paper documents the pilot rural radio campaign, dubbed as 'Climate Change i-Broadkas Mo', implemented by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in Southeast Asia (CCAFS SEA) and the Philippine Federation of Rural Broadcasters (PFRB)​ in strategic regions of the Philippines from 2015 to 2018. The radio campaign provided PFRB affiliated broadcasters with scripts and ready-to-be-aired (RTBA) interviews on climate-smart agriculture. The lessons learned from the project can be used to enhance the capacities…
Participatory land-use planning (PLUP) refers to a bottom-up method of analyzing land and water resources. In its current form, PLUP integrates inputs about climate change and sea level rise to help the community utilize the resources within its vicinities. In utilizing its resources, the community will be able to improve the people’s livelihoods and help them sustain such resources for the benefit of the next generations. This publication in implementing PLUP focused on climate-smart adaptation in Climate-Smart Villages (CSVs).
This manual is intended to provide simple and helpful information, especially to farmers and extension agents, in solving pests and diseases issues on rice production in the context of climate change. The publication tackles: the effects of climate change on agriculture; effects of climatic factors on the development of pests and diseases; and importance of an Early Warning System and the pest-smart interventions and recommendations to alleviate problems due to pests and diseases.
This book presents the gender dimensions of the relationship between agriculture and climate change. It explores whether men and women farmers experience similar or different vulnerabilities and coping mechanisms or adaptation measures in response to climate change risks. It identifies gender gaps in access to resources, information, services, technologies, training, finance, etc., which enable or constrain men and women to adopt CSA and practices, as well as presents examples of Participatory Vulnerability Analysis and participatory action research, which incorporate a…
The 6th Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum took place from 17 to 19 October 2018, at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters in Manila, Philippines. This is the sixth flagship biennial event of the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), which constitutes the primary regional platform for adaptation practitioners to share adaptation knowledge and collaborate to address the challenges and opportunities of climate change. Co-hosted by the Government of Palau, the Philippine Climate Change Commission, and ADB, together with the APAN…
The 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…
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. In 2017, the Oscar M. Lopez Center (OML) published the Philippine Climate Change…

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
