Stabilization of Upland Agriculture under El Nino-Induced Climatic Risk: Impact Assessment and Mitigation Measures in the Philippines
AbstractThis study focuses on the impacts of El Nino induced abnormal weather on agricultural productivity in rainfed areas and on the coping mechanisms and risk management strategies from the national down to the household level. This study was conducted to: a) Determine the impacts of El Nino-related abnormal weather changes on production of selected crops; b) Document and analyze the existing conditions on rainfed farming systems, resources, infrastructure, institutions, and other socio-economic characteristics associated with El Nino vulnerable areas; c) Review existing policies related to El Nino; d) Draw up recommendations for the stabilization of rainfed agricultural production. The major sources of data were reports of studies related to El Nino, on-farm research and data from the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS). Climatic data was taken from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and research project reports.
