The project on Enhancing the Local Government Units' Capacity for Implementing Conservation Farming Village as a Strategy for Implementing Conservation Farming Village as a Strategy for Climate Change Adaptation and Upland Development in the Philippines in support of the Local Government Code (RA 7160) of the Philippines where the local executives were given autonomy to attain sustainable access and development of their resources, attain increased productivity, enhanced sustainability through soil-water nutrient conservation; community participation and increased equitability and empowerment among the constituents. The Conservation Farming Village (CFV) is a modality for improving human lives through better livelihood, agricultural productivity, and environmental security of communities living in the marginal sloping lands under the prevailing climate context. It aims to help upland farmers improve their economic conditions by strengthening their skills and enhancing their assets to manage the natural resources thereby protecting their communities against environmental degradation while sustaining their sources of livelihood. CFV is a tripartite collaboration among the state university or college (SUC), the local government unit (LGU) and farmer. The CFV was first implemented in 5 provinces in the Philippines and this APN-supported project envisions to enable LGUs' executives and development workers to adequately empower upland farmers and local community leaders in the establishment of one model farm per province in one year in 15 provinces.Show more [+] Less [-]
