DA Press Release
29 Oct 2020

DA chief enjoins ASEAN to build resilient agri sector vs climate change, disasters

As the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries are frequently visited by typhoons and experience extreme weather phenomena,  agriculture secretary William Dar enjoin fellow ASEAN members to work together in building a strong, resilient and sustainable agriculture and fishery sector to withstand adverse effects of climate change.

“The effects of climate change, along with the destruction caused by natural disasters, make it more difficult to ensure food security to an ever-growing population in the ASEAN region, which is expected to rise by 1.6 percent annually,” said secretary Dar, during the “2nd climate-smart and disaster-resilient ASEAN virtual international Conference” on October 26, 2020, hosted by Malaysia.

With the huge impact of climate change on food and agriculture, he shared with his colleagues the Philippines’ experience and interventions, specifically programs of the Department of Agriculture (DA), in response to climate change.

"We have put in place a program, called the Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture (AMIA), to ensure that our resources and capacities are supporting climate resilient agriculture or aCRA. We are levelling-up from building resilient livelihoods and communities to CRA enterprises in towns, provinces or regional scales," he said.

"That is why we have  institutionalized the CRA Office to ensure that climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction (CCA-DRR) are mainstreamed in our plans, programs and activities,” the DA chief added.

He said the DA is scaling up its gains from AMIA using science-based decision support tools for vulnerability assessment, investment targeting, farm-fishing operations, and better planning for infrastructure, finance and insurance, research and development, regulations and extension support.

"The pandemic has shown us the need to strengthen regional cooperation in maintaining a robust food system that is compliant with the health quarantine restrictions. Strengthening the ASEAN food system will further promote trade, shorten food value chain, reduce transport costs, and reduce risks from impacts of climate change and other natural disasters," he said.

He suggested that the ASEAN Integrated Food Security (AIFS) framework be expanded and to continue working on the food safety standards harmonization.

The DA chief also suggested other possible areas of collaboration in ASEAN, namely:
• Establishment of regional disaster insurance system;
• Development of technologies to reduce carbon footprint in compliance with the Paris agreement;
• Development of food production systems in urban settings; and
• Institutionalization of social protection and welfare programs for farmers and fisherfolk.

He said the collective efforts will be futile if the ASEAN member-countries do not commit to act and implement  the interventions.

“We call on everyone to work together to help alleviate our peoples’ plight, particularly in the agriculture and fisheries sector, who are most vulnerable. Climate change is a global phenomenon so it must be addressed inclusively. If member-nations don’t commit to climate action, our children will be the ones to suffer in the future,” he concluded.

The conference serves as a trans-disciplinary platform to share experiences and research results on climate change and disaster risks in South East Asia. It was participated by international leaders, scientists, experts, decision-makers, and members of the private and development sector. ### (RTDC)

Philippine Archive / Talks on ceasefire pending peace negotiations
« Last post by caretaker on Yesterday at 11:49:41 PM »
By EA Delgado

MASBATE CITY (2 December 2020) -- The Masbate Provincial Peace and Order Council will be knocking on the door of leaders of the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People's Army for talks on ceasefire pending peace negotiations on the national level between the government and the National Democratic Front.

The decision came during the recent PPOC meeting held at the Office of the Governor after Vice Governor Vicente Homer B. Revil and SP Board member Silas V. Laurio declared their readiness to hold talks with rebel leaders to look into the possibility of declaring certain areas in Masbate as "zones of peace".

Once an area is declared as a zone of peace, it will be off-limits to armed rebels and government troopers to avoid encounters in the area.

The possible zones of peace nor the criteria for declaring an area as such were not immediately determined, but Revil, who presided over the meeting, said the purpose of creating peace zones is to allow the uninterrupted human activities to prevail in areas where economic and social development are taking place.

In the same meeting, Laurio proposed the creation of a provincial unification committee to take initial steps in extending the offer to local CPP-NPA leaders.

Laurio, who is also chair of the committee on peace and order of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, asked the Police Provincial Office to facilitate issuance of safe conduct passes to whoever will be designated by the rebels to the negotiating table.

Revil expressed concern over the safety of negotiators from both sides, considering that there are other government forces in the province operating independently from the police force.

Composition of the committee has not yet been finalized but the council was considering membership of the representatives of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the media, Fr. Emmnauel B. Basas who is diocesan social action director, the vice governor, and Laurio.

The peace offer will be the fourth attempt of local government leaders in Masbate to strike a peace agreement with CPP-NPA leaders here since the 1986 Edsa Revolution.

Soon after the Edsa Revolution that toppled the Marcos dictatorship, CPP-NPA leaders here sit down with local government leaders but later abandoned the negotiating table.

In 1992, then Masbate Governor Emilio Espinosa, Jr. initiated a peace negotiation with rebel leaders here, but after a few meeting between the unification committee and local CPP-NPA leaders, the talks bogged down.

Only three years ago, Masbate Governor Antonio Kho expressed intention to initiate peace negotiations with CPP-NPA leaders here in response to the bombings perpetrated in Baleno and Esperanza towns by the underground movement. The CPP-NPA leaders did not react to the peace negotiation offered.

Press Release Philippines / Senator Bong Go Helps Gensan Fisherfolks
« Last post by caretaker on Yesterday at 11:18:32 PM »
Various vulnerable sectors in General Santos City receive aid from Bong Go as he reaffirms commitment to ensure poor Filipinos’ access to COVID-19 vaccine

As the health crisis still threatens the lives of many Filipinos, Senator Christopher “Bong” Go continues to deliver assistance to the poor and the vulnerable, such as the market vendors, fisherfolk, and fish port workers in General Santos City on Tuesday, October 27 in two separate distribution activities.

He also provided aid to patients and medical frontliners of the Dr. Jorge P. Royeca Hospital, which also hosts a Malasakit Center whose launching the Senator personally attended last February 2019.

Go personally went to both distribution activities in the public market and fish port. The first distribution activity conducted benefited 350 fisherfolk and fish port workers, held at General Santos Fish Port.

The second distribution activity was for 306 market vendors from the General Santos City Public Market. It was held at the Fatima National High School Gym in the afternoon.

Go’s staff then proceeded to DJRH to distribute assistance to 62 patients who are currently admitted in the hospital.

All beneficiaries in the three distribution activities were provided with food packs, meals, masks, face shields, medicine packs and vitamins. The activity was conducted while adhering to necessary health and safety protocols to avoid the further spread of COVID-19.

“Gamitin ninyo ang mga binigay naming masks at face shields para maiwasan natin ang transmission ng sakit. Delikado ang panahon ngayon kaya magtulungan tayo at sundin ang mga health protocols na binigay ng gobyerno, tulad ng mag-social distancing,” Go said.

Due to limited transportation and the need to commute to work, Go also provided bicycles to selected beneficiaries during all distribution activities.

He also gave away tablets to another set of selected recipients of the first and second distribution activities for their children to use in the online learning platform.

“May ibinigay akong mga tablets. Para sa mga bata, mag-aral kayong mabuti. Ito lamang ang aming kasiyahan bilang mga magulang at puhunan ninyo na rin sa inyong kinabukasan,” Go said.

Personnel from different government agencies were also present during the first two distribution activities.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development provided financial assistance to all beneficiaries through their program which intends to help individuals in crisis situations. The patients in DJRH were also given medical assistance by the agency.

The Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Labor and Employment profiled and assessed qualified beneficiaries in the first two distribution activities for their own respective livelihood programs.

In addition, the DTI will provide entrepreneurial starter kits, and DOLE will provide livelihood packages, especially for disadvantaged or displaced workers. On the other hand, the DA will provide zero-percent interest loans under their credit policy program and also distributed vegetable seeds.

“Tulong ito mula sa gobyerno. Huwag kayo mawalan ng pag-asa dahil bagamat nahihirapan kayo, hindi kayo iiwan at pababayaan ng gobyernong palaging nagmamalasakit sa inyo lalo na sa oras ng inyong pangangailangan,” he said.

Addressing the country’s current health situation, Go assured beneficiaries that once the vaccine for COVID-19 is made available, the poor and the vulnerable will be prioritized and be given access.

“Magtiis lang tayo ng konti. Kapag may vaccine na, sisiguraduhin namin ni Pangulong Duterte na i-prioritize ang mga mahihirap at vulnerable,” Go said.

As the Senate Chair of the Committee on Health, Go told reporters in an interview that the process to acquire the COVID-19 vaccine is underway as clinical trials are to be conducted.

“‘Yan po ang pinaghahandaan ngayon at parating iniisip ng ating Pangulo. Kakakausap ko lang sa kanya... Napag-usapan po na ‘yung vaccine, kakausapin niya po ‘yung Ambassador ng China kung paano po mapabilis at maumpisahan ang clinical trial ng Chinese vaccine,” he said.

“Not only vaccines from China but as well as from other countries. Ang importante dito ay safe po, ulitin ko, dapat safe ang vaccine na ituturok sa bawat Pilipino,” he added.

The country is currently collaborating with various bilateral and multilateral partners for the development and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.

The Philippines is also a participant in the World Health Organization Solidarity Trial for vaccines and treatment drugs where a vaccine list will soon be released, and start of clinical trials will start in the country on December.

In addition, the country is also participating in the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access (COVAX) Facility, as endorsed by the Department of Science and Technology on October 9.

Independent clinical trials for potential COVID-19 treatments are alsobeing conducted and the government is eyeing on public-private partnership schemes for vaccine self-sufficiency. (Cathy Apelacio / PIA)
