SEARCA PROC 2020 6: Forum on Reducing Disaster Risks Towards a Resilient Agricultural Sector

Some of the specific pathways through which damage and loss from exposure to extreme hazards such as tropical storms, floods, droughts due to climate variability and change occur in the agricultural sector. Despite this, there is still limited action related to disaster risk reduction and management by various actors, which underpins the vulnerability that exists in the sector. The lack of technical capacity, poor government coordination, and inadequate financing, for instance, suggest the type of local government policies in place. With the physical changes, these sociopolitical issues and concerns will slow down economic activities and reduce related production and marketing, particularly affecting the poorer households and smallholder farmers. Unless serious action is taken, more hazards will continuously affect the sector.
