The Bicol region’s Climate-Resilient Agri-Fisheries (CRA) assessment, targeting and prioritization for the Adaptation And Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture (AMIA) which primarily aims to strengthen the capacities for CRA in the region; assess climate risks through geospatial and climate modelling tools (DIVA, GIS, QGIS); determine local stakeholders’ perceptions, knowledge and strategies for adapting to climate risks; and document local CRA practices in the region. Through formal household interview, key informant interview (KII), focused group discussion (FGD), CRA practices were identified (organic farming for corn and green super rice for rice) in the province; the number one crop occurrence in the region (rice); and produce an adaptive capacity aggregated map. Likewise, secondary data, literature review and expert consultation aided in the transfer of knowledge on Climate Risk Vulnerability Assessment (CRVA) and CRA established through series of trainings and workshops. Validation workshops were also conducted in which vulnerability assessment on climate-risk exposure, sensitivity and adaptability and risk targeting of agri-fishery sector using GIS climate change modelling tools were presented and discussed with the respondents and participants from various sectors.
