Dry Spell in North Cotabato

Greenpeace recently witnessed and documented the impacts of a two month dry spell, coinciding with a weak El Niño, to local agriculture in a recent visit to North Cotabato. The municipality of M’lang, in particular, has been declared under a state-of-calamity a month after PAG-ASA declared the onset of an El Niño in March. 

In response to mounting concerns about the possible impact of a weak El Niño on Filipino farmers, Greenpeace Philippines is calling on both the national and local governments to adopt and support policies and programs to help transition the country’s farming system towards a climate-resilient model.
