The Climate-Smart Village approach is a CCAFS agricultural research for development (AR4D) strategy for stimulating the scaling of climate-smart agriculture. CSVs are established in Southeast Asia through the CCAFS program to serve as sites for “testing, through participatory methods, technological and institutional options for generating evidence of CSA effectiveness as well as drawing out scaling lessons for policy makers from local to global levels (CCAFS, 2016). The CSVs in My Loi in Vietnam and Guinayangan in the Philippines were established…
Saltwater intrusion is a problem among Filipino and Vietnamese farmers. Well-constructed intervention policies and training can support the decision to continue rice cultivation and create stronger communities amidst the threats of saltwater intrusion.
In this book, we conceptualize what a climate change-adaptive (CC-A) school is with reference to schools in rice-farming communities. This book is born out of a project funded by the DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) in collaboration with 12 participating schools of the Department of Education (DepEd). Various initiatives on CCA are being vigorously pursued involving schools. The emphasis on disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) is very prominent as evidenced by the DRRM walls in our public elementary schools…
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…
Sustainable forest management could be achieved through the Community-Based Forest Management (CBFM) strategy designed to organize and empower local communities to responsibly utilize natural resources. In the context of the Philippines, there are two underlying concepts that form the foundation of such strategy: (1) the organization of a “community” that relates to the security of tenure; and (2) the responsibility of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), local government units (LGUs), and other government agencies to collaborate with…
This report seeks to provide a framework to measure the nexus between gender and the environment. It proposes 18 gender-environment indicators for inclusion in the wider set of gender indicators, across the focal areas of right to land, natural resources, and biodiversity; access to food, energy, water and sanitation; climate change, sustainable production and consumption, and health; and women in environmental decision making at all levels. This report then presents enabling conditions at the national level, including through action research…
The assessment of impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability in the Working Group II contribution to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (WGII AR5) evaluates how patterns of risks and potential benefits are shifting due to climate change since 2007 when the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) was released.
This guidebook is based on the experience gained from the pilot project titled, A Participatory Action Research on School and Community-based Food and Nutrition Program for Literacy, Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development, implemented by SEARCA, the Department of Education (DepEd)–Laguna, and the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). This Guidebook is meant for a wide audience, ministries or departments of education, local government units, and other development organizations interested in adopting the school-Plus-Home gardens model in their schools, community,…
The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), together with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Laguna, and three of its sister regional centers under the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), organized the “Training of Trainers on Scaling Up the School-plus-home Gardens Model in Southeast Asia” on 18-21 April 2018 at the SEARCA Headquarters, in line with efforts toward…
