Forum on Reducing Disaster Risks towards a Resilient Agricultural Sector

29-30 August 2019 | SEARCA, Philippines

SEARCA and the Embassy of France in the Philippines are organizing this Forum, which will highlight the impacts of disaster on the agricultural landscape. It will present how the various stakeholders in the agricultural sector cope with the effects of disaster from preparation to post disaster recovery, identifying the link between development and vulnerability of rural areas to natural hazards.

The Forum likewise aims to identify the risks that small farm producers are facing, their needs to better manage the effects brought by changes in climatic conditions, and the gaps between these needs and current resources available. It will provide propositions in recommending measures and building mechanisms to address these gaps as well as identify further capacity development needs of the stakeholders of the agriculture and rural sector.
