PJD 2017 Vol. 44 No. 1b: Chronic Food Poverty and Weather Variability in the Philippines

This study examines the effects of weather variability on food poverty dynamics in the Philippines. Among others, it finds that chronic food poverty is indeed affected by rainfall deviation. People in rural areas can easily slip in and out of poverty since their livelihood depends on stable environments, such as even temperature and a steady supply of water. To address the adverse effect of sustained weather fluctuations, the study prods local government units (LGUs) to spearhead the development of a climate-smart agriculture that fits the needs of the community. The study also suggests for the government to explore adaptive social protection initiatives that support propoor climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction by strengthening the resilience of vulnerable populations.
