The US withdrawal from Paris Agreement means that the impacts of climate change will worsen in the years to come particularly in the developing countries like the Philippines which contributed so little in the global greenhouse gasses emission.
While we continue to rally for Climate Justice, we must also strengthen the adaptation capacity of the farmers who comprise the majority of our population by developing more climate-resilient farming practices based on the interconnected framework of right to food and agroecology.
In response to this need, Agro-Eco Philippines in partnership with the Swiss Catholic Lenten Fund, DKA Austria and the Missionary Society of St. Columban are now developing various resilient crops and farming technologies in our 14-hectare Resource Center located at Brgy. Maluko, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. This effort aims to increase the capacity of the poor farmers address extreme weather events brought about by climate change. It also provides the civil society organizations with appropriate agriculture-based programs that are more relevant and appropriate to the people in the communities.
You can contact Mr. Edilfledo Muyco, Farm Manager of Agro-Eco Philippines’ Resource Center (ARC) at 09096987421 and Mr. Fedilito Agot, Research Officer at 09983207650 for your inquiries. You can also write to email@example.com for your partnership with our Mindanao-based national organization.
Climate Change is everyone’s concern. Let us work for it.
