Climate change will impact Philippines ability to feed its people. It is hard to our farmers that they are the most affected if we not care or preserve our nature for the next generations or years. Of course we will suffer of what we are doing.

Farmers and their families will be the greatest affection of food insecurity anf malnutrition in the country as droughts and extreme affect their crop yields.

Climate change is the altering production system, compromising food security and nutrition of millions of people in the Philippines.

José Manuel Fernandéz, FAO’s country representative in the Philippines, said that an annual population growth rate of 1.5%. Our county estimared that we are 105 millions living here, the 13th biggest population in the world. This which also means the biggest threat to food security in the country. Due to climate change, crop yields are declining about by 25% and also thr fish species ar also expected to decline about 40% here in the Philippines.

Ironically, the Filipino farmers who labor in the fields to produce food has the greatest affection of insecurity and malnutrion of their families. We should protect our nature because if we not protect it, we will siffer form the things we do. There is too much heat or too much rain that ruin the crops of our farmers and the pests that eats the crops is one of the problem also, well that is not our falt but the main thing here is we shoul love and protect our nature to lessend that kind of disaster or climate change that is happrning nos in the Philippines.

This is a global challenge. We are yet to see the worst of it. Going by the projections from the FAO by the year 2050 , there will be an estimated 9.6 billion people on the planet implying that more agricultural resources in terms of crops and livestock will be needed to feed the population. Unless there are some radical changes in the production systems particularly that of livestock, the emissions from agriculture and agriculture related activities will be a serious challenge as one of them is methane which is a significant GHG.
