Baseline study of Agusan del Norte

Baseline study of Agusan del Norte farming communities 2009

A baseline study of the farming communities of Agusan del Norte is anchored on the perspective that community development and initiatives should start at the local level where local perceptions and judgments are hatched and inspired towards crafting informed policy decisions for intervention by development agencies.

A Climate Change Adaptation Project under Outcome 3: Coping Mechanisms improved through pilot schemes with national up-scaling potential of the “Millennium Development Goal –Fund (MDG-F) 1656 Joint Programme on Strengthening the Philippines’ Institutional Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change” is implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO), a specialized agency of the United Nations in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to support vulnerable farming communities in Agusan del Norte.
