MetadataShow full item record
The lives and livelihood of farmers and fisherfolk in Mindanao have been affected by recurrent displacement as a result of sporadic armed clashes. The farming and fishing families in Mindanao are no stranger to both natural and human-induced disasters. Through a 3-million grant from the government of New Zealand, fao is currently supporting the recovery of some 10, 475 farming and fishing households in the province of Cotabato. The project, which will operate until the month of October this year, aims to restart agricultural livelihoods and improve the coping abilities and resilience of smallholders in the five municipalities of Aleosan, Kabacan, Midsayap, Pigkawayan, and Pikit.
