Climate Change Adaptation

We are changing the way we live and work. Adaptation to climate change enables us to deal with the impacts of climate change and global warming. Loss of forests and trees, changing rainfall patterns and seasons have direct impacts on our social, economic, political and humanitarian outlooks. They are a major cause of crop losses and food insecurity. We are changing the way we grow food and use farming land. Climate Change Adaptation is something we cannot avoid. The CPRSX Climate Change Action Plan ™ focuses on the commercial and social opportunities for Indigenous peoples and poor landowner – farmers.

Climate Change Adaptation Adaptation affects young and old, families and children, food and water security, housing, infrastructure, electricity and gas, medicine and health, flora and fauna lifecycles, oceans and seas, fishing, forestry and almost everything else that touches our lives. As time progresses, these experiences and changes become more prominent. It makes sense to prepare for the opportunities that accompany the Principle of Climate Change Adaptation.  

Climate Change Adaptation also affects personal freedoms, crime and justice, law enforcement, intergovernmental relationships, cross border trading, technology, entertainment, travel and transport. There are many areas of life and commerce, affected Climate Change Adaptation and important areas concern is food and water security and land-use-change, each of which is directly connected to the way we use land and clear it to enable growing populations to sustain their lives. Earth’s life sustaining resources are degrading through population growth and climate change. This is one reason why the CPRSX Climate Change Action Plan came into existence. It states that Climate Change Adaptation has enhanced prospects of success only if it is underpinned by commercial viability which increases employment, working and business opportunities in food producing areas, including the Ancestral Domains in the Philippines.   South Asia and Southern Africa as two regions that, without sufficient adaptation measures, will suffer many negative impacts on important crops.

Chieftain Romea Cawad inspires and leads the Bugkalot tribe in adaptation. From headhunter to computer literacy.

In summary, transferring open air farming into greenhouses which can withstand weather, grow food in biological mediums and grow 24 hours a day with artificial lighting is the way to adapt farming practices, skills and food production to meet the challenges of feeding our growing population, the poor and malnourished in the Philippines and indeed, worldwide. The Bugkalot are eager and excited, to adapt their open air farming practices and upgrade the tribal traditional knowledge handed down since time immemorial, to meet the challenge of eliminating food insecurity for the benefit of theirs; and all other future generations. If Chieftain Cawad can adapt, everyone can adapt.
