The Department of Agriculture (DA), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration of the Department of Science and Technology (DoST-Pagasa), and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launched the "Adapting Philippine Agriculture to Climate Change" (APA) Project during a landmark inception workshop held from June 18 to 19 at Citadines Roces Quezon City. This initiative marks a significant stride in improving farmers' resilience in the face of mounting climate challenges.

Anchored on the success of the DA's Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture (AMIA) Project, the APA project focuses on advancing climate-resilient agriculture (CRA) technologies and empowering farmers to develop sustainable enterprises in nine provinces across the country identified as climate hotspots. With a target of reaching 1.25 million farmers, the project aims to raise awareness of climate risks, enhance capacity for resilient agricultural practices, and facilitate access to vital financial resources.
