EF’s outcome in the Philippines will increase the resilience of rural and coastal communities facing ecological and socio-economic challenges through the scaling up of agroecological practices and the adoption of public policies favourable to fair and sustainable food production systems. This will be achieved by enhancing agroecological production in a perspective of food sovereignty. Furthermore, the resilience of the communities will increase through improved natural resource management, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Moreover, living conditions will be improved through the diversification of livelihood and the creation of viable social enterprises. Finally, rural movement capacity will be strengthened towards influencing political decisions that favour a sustainable agricultural production system (land tenure security, regional and national advocacy in towards agroecology and family farming, women’s rights, peace building). Small subsistence farmers and fisherfolks households who belong to the most vulnerable groups will be the target population of the outcome, with a special focus on women, youth, the elderly and IPs (indigenous people) to ensure that no one is left behind. The outcome will be reached in Mindanao region with 5 partner organizations. EF has chosen to work directly with local partner organizations, through local coordination, because development is mainly an endogenous process.


The outcome in the Philippines is to develop and strengthen the resilience and sustainable living conditions of the farming and fishing households (especially women and youth) in Mindanao through continuous organizing/movement building of the rural population, widespread adoption of agroecological productive practices, the creation of diversified livelihood and viable SEs in a more favourable political, legal and institutional context within the overall framework of food sovereignty.
