CSPPS WP No. 2018-10: Characterizing Farm Communities in Rainfed Lowland and Upland Areas in Milagros, Masbate

One of the key activities of the project is the conduct of a Participatory Rural Appraisal to engage participants in the planning, monitoring, and evaluation of CRDES activities. The PRA was beneficial in providing qualitative data of the farmer-respondents from Milagros, Masbate that can be useful as a baseline data for planning of activities, monitoring, and evaluation. PRA results for the rainfed lowland and upland study sites in Masbate show that the major problems of farmers were lack of water resources, pest infestation, lack of farm infrastructures such as farm to market roads, and marketing. Farmers believe that their problems could be addressed by different government agencies such as the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), the local government unit (LGU), the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg), and Land Bank of the Philippines.
