Philippines: Southeast Asians learn best practices in climate-smart agri in Quezon

Source(s):  Business Mirror - Philippine Business Daily Mirror Publishing, Inc.

‘It takes a village to scale climate-smart agriculture.”

This statement of Leocadio S. Sebastian, regional program leader for CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in Southeast Asia, sums up the advocacy of CCAFS SEA, the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (Searca), and the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) to push for the establishment of climate-smart villages (CSVs) in the Southeast Asian region to improve food security and resiliency in local communities.


The approach enables farmers to use experiential learning to overcome challenges posed by climate change and capacitate them to establish their own CSVs.


The CSV in Guinayangan, Quezon, illustrates how the local government can use its natural resources to address the impacts of climate change, said Emilita Monville Oro, IIRR country director and acting regional director for Asia. 

She also emphasized the importance of building the capacities of communities and local government units in scaling up initiatives on climate-smart agriculture.
