INCREASE Project Briefer
“Philippines – Increasing Resilience to Natural Hazards” or “INCREASE” aims to aims to increase the resilience of 45,00 women and men small scale farmers and fishers, including 720 extremely poor female-headed households, to natural hazards and the effect of climate change. INCREASE will run from 2019-2021 in different parts of the Philippines.
INCREASE will be working with 36 barangays across 8 municipalities in the provinces of Mt. Province, Cagayan, Northern Samar, and Surigao del Sur. These barangays are among the most vulnerable communities that are the first to be impacted by strong rain and typhoons along the east coast of the Philippines. These communities share the same landscape – upland, riverline, coastal – building on the landscape approach of the project.
