Aid for farming, fishing families in Cotabato
MetadataShow full item record
For the past four decades, the lives and livelihood of farmers and fisherfolks in some areas of Mindanao have been affected by recurrent displacement as a result of sporadic armed clashes. 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 aims to re-start agricultural livelihoods and improve the coping abilities and resilience of smallholders in the municipalities of Aleosan, Kabacan, Midsayap, Pigkawayan, and Pikit.
