DRN 2018 Vol. XXXVI No. 2: Farmers still struggle to afford agri insurance

This issue of the Development Research News (DRN) revisits the country’s social protection programs and provides strategies to further improve their implementation. Its banner story specifically highlights the struggle of Filipino farmers, particularly those from the CALABARZON region, to afford the agricultural insurance. Another article emphasizes the need for the government’s social protection programs to be adaptive to climate change and disasters. Related stories on social protection programs also featured in this issue include the study on the benefits of emergency unconditional cash transfer program of the United Nations Children’s Fund to Typhoon Yolanda survivors and the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Completing this issue are stories on extended subsidy for exporting micro, small, and medium enterprises; the role of higher education institutions in addressing poverty in the Philippines; and the slow disaster recovery in the country.
