  • Despite impressive progress to address poverty and food insecurity, climate-related hazards could threaten these hard-won development gains.

  • Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the central part of the country in November 2013, and more recently Typhoon Hagupit are testament to the potentially devastating effects of climate on food security and vulnerable livelihoods.
