Building resilient yet progressive agriculture and fisheries livelihoods and communities by providing highly-responsive agriculture and fisheries support services.
The AMIA Program envisions the Philippines where all communities, especially those dependent on agriculture and fisheries, would become resilient to the increasing adverse effects of climate change.
In pursuit of this vision, the program aims to set up model communities called AMIA villages, which would serve as lighthouses or go-to places for other communities to learn from and emulate, and where technological and institutional innovations are introduced so that these villages may have access to climate-relevant support services.
The AMIA Village Model
Timely, relevant, and site-specific climate information via Climate Information Services (CIS)
Easy access credit and affordable insurance
Computer-aided decision-making technology
Training on CCA/DRR productivity-enhancing practices/technologies
Links to markets
Selection of AMIA Village Sites
Climate-Risk Vulnerability Assessment (CRVA)
Presence of farmers’ organizations
Presence of financial institutions (banks, lending/credit, risk transfer facility)
Presence of Agricultural Extension Workers (AEWs)
Active participation & support of LGU
Potential for Outscaling
