POLANCO, Zamboanga del Norte – More than the need to ensure food sufficiency, building climate resilient farms is also a must in today’s agricultural fabric. According to OIC-Director Luz Taposok of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), it is a high time for the farmers and fishers to cope with the current changes in agriculture.
MANILA – OIC-Director Luz Taposok of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) stressed the need to shift to a market-oriented farming as some ASEAN Member States gather to undergo training and formulate plans on how to deal with agricultural losses due to the changing climate.
“Sustainable Agriculture Focused on Climate-Smart Farming Business is a practical response to the short and long-term problems caused by climate change.” Dr. Taposok stated during the course orientation and opening program.
DILIMAN, Quezon City—“If we really wanted to make a significant mark in poverty reduction, helping them is the best way to start.” These were the words of Senator Cynthia Villar, Chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food during the project launch of “Improving Productivity in Agriculture through Climate-Smart Technology” or ImPACT Philippines. Villar stressed the need to support our farmers and fishers since about two-thirds of the country’s population is involved in the agriculture sector, directly or indirectly.
