ABSTRACT

The climate of our planet, including that of the Philippines, has been changing significantly during the last century primarily driven by anthropogenic activities. This book contains comprehensive information about the changes in climate and their impacts on the country’s environment, natural resources, agriculture, ecosystem, biodiversity, weather, and the quality of life of its inhabitants. Risk management and resilience are discussed along with selected strategies for mitigation and effective adaptation especially in agriculture, forestry, grassland, livestock, fisheries, and health (source: http://press.up.edu.ph/).
