Dear Jonel Getigan,

Greetings!

Thank you for your request dated Jul 03, 2019 12:00:37 PM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for The Parameters used in Identifying the Cacao Suitability Map based from farmersguidemap.

Response to Request

Your FOI request is approved. I enclose a copy of the information you requested.

The suitability map was developed by the The Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture or AMIA which supported the development of new planning tools that consider the challenges of climate change, to assist Filipino farmers and fisher folks, and all other stakeholders, including the private sector, towards climate-ready crop management systems, while ensuring science-based interventions by the government.

 The color-coded map identifies the crops that are most suitable in agricultural parcels, and overlays soil properties, elevation, rainfall pattern, temperature and more importantly, the projected climate-induced multi-hazards. The maps will guide the government in determining forward-looking policies and site-specific food production projects and infrastructure investments. As a decision support tool, the color-coded map can be used for investment planning, climate-resilient research and development, innovative credit and insurance packages, climate-resilient agriculture and fisheries extension, infrastructure and disaster management. It will be useful for LGUs in preparing their CLUPs, planning disaster risk reduction measures and climate change adaptation technologies and practices.

For more information, please contact Bureau of Plant Industry at   bpi.information@yahoo.com or BPI Information Section/Computer Unit with Ms. Lolinnie A. Eugenio at 353-6976
