Safe Water to All

Poor water quality has large economic and quality of life costs, in terms of health impacts and foregone revenues. According to the Philippine government's monitoring data, just over 36 percent of the country's river systems are classified as sources of public water supply and that up to 58 percent of groundwater sampled is contaminated with coliform and needs treatment. Approximately 31 percent of illnesses monitored for a five-year period were also caused by water-borne sources, and many areas are experiencing a shortage of water supply, during the dry season.

Designing and Building with Bamboo

One of the earliest and, perhaps, the most widespread use of bamboo is in building construction. The cylindrical structure and ready finish of bamboo predispose it as a natural building material. The high strength and low weight add to its utility.

Bamboo in Construction

Since ancient times, bamboo has been in wide usage as a low-cost building material in Asia and elsewhere. It is also used, in countries where it grows abundantly, for building bridges and scaffolding. In recent times, departing from tradition, bamboo has also started appearing in designer homes as flooring, walling and paneling material.

Endangered Species in Fauna &  Flora

Wild habitats are fast disappearing. Forests are being cut down, rivers and seas polluted, heathlands built on, hedgerows pulled up, ponds filled in - the destruction seems endless. As the habitats decrease, so do their communities of animals and plants. Habitat destruction is one of the main reasons why many species face extinction. Habitats are commonly split up and animals can't get from one part to another, unless wildlife 'corridors' are provided. Other reasons for their demise include the hunting of animals and collection of plants. Now they are facing a new threat, that of climate change.

Saint Bernard, Southern Leyte Creates Innovative Disaster Warning System

Once nearly wiped out by a landslide, a town in the Philippines finds a new way to manage natural disasters. More than 70 percent of St. Bernard and the surrounding area are highly vulnerable to flash floods, tsunamis, storms, and landslides, but there was no warning system in place until a landslide killed over 1,000 people in 2006. Now, local residents, government organizations, and NGOs have worked together to set up an early warning system that uses both indigenous knowledge and state of the art technology.

    The quake drill in Manila is in preparation for a quake brought about by the possible movement of the Manila Trench and the West Valley Fault. Experts fear that a major quake caused by this movement could result in the isolation of the capital due to collapsed structures, and the loss of countless number of lives.

    In the last two decades, storms and monsoon rains have brought floods, sickness, and a standstill in business activities to Balangiga, a small seaside town in Eastern Samar, Philippines. Using a community-driven development (CDD) approach, residents addressed this problem by constructing a network of canals to channel floodwaters toward the sea. It has not only empowered local communities to address flooding and improve their health, but also created jobs for local residents, thus lessening poverty.

    An Emergency Preparedness Guide

    An emergency is something that can be described as an event that occurs which is unexpected. The event could be a natural occurrence such as floods or tornadoes, or it could be man-made events such as from fire or other causes. Whatever the cause of the emergency, it is very important for people to react properly in the event of an emergency. The way people react can be the difference between an event that causes serious damage or injury, and one that does not.

    Preparing For a Power Failure

    Electricity is a relatively recent luxury that first emerged in the 19th century. Since then, however, it has become an essential part of modern society, and a major contributor to not only everyone's standard of living, but also their good health. Electrical service is vulnerable to interruptions not only by overloaded power grids, but also by natural disasters such as blizzards, tornadoes or hurricanes. Power outages are more than mere nuisances that can deprive people of access to computers and household lighting. They can lead to the spoiling of food supplies, the reduction of hospital services, and disrupt communications. Prolonged blackouts can reduce a modern neighborhood or city to what seems like a third world existence. Outages are highly unpredictable and because of this, it is necessary for people to know not only how to cope with them, but also how to prepare in advance.

    1. What are the recently documented environmental changes in the Philippines and how are these impacting on the vulnerability of the poor?
    2. How do environmental changes affect the population movements especially among the poor?
    3. What are the strategies employed by the different sectors, especially the government, to reduce impacts of adverse environmental changes?
    4. Which strategies seem to be more effective in reducing the vulnerability of the poor and how can they be improved?

    Waste Management Essential to Recovery

    The video explains how waste management contributes to early recovery in the devastated areas across the Visayas. "Our initial estimates were 1.1 or 1.2 million cubic meters of debris around the town," says Dr. Tim Walsh, UNDP waste management advisor in the video filmed in Tacloban. "Imagine a football field piled up with ten meters of waste. That is a three story building on a football field. Times that by ten football fields and you get the idea of the quantity of the debris we're dealing with." Proper waste management and disposal reduces the risk of disease and allows the reconstruction of the destroyed areas to roceed. To date, almost 40,000 beneficiaries are enrolled in UNDP cash-for-work programmes in debris removal in Tacloban, Ormoc, Roxas and Guiuan. "We estimate we cleared to the dump site probably five per cent of the debris," continued Dr. Tim Walsh. "In three to six months we'll still be dealing with debris." Published on Apr 1, 2014

    In the village of Maning, in Paracale, Camarines Norte, a network of pits and tunnels snake their way under a mountain, where thousands of people go everyday to search for gold. The area has around 400 mining pits in operation, up from just 20 in June 2014, but since a 7-kg. high-grade gold was found there, the number was dramatically increased to 400. Here, miners risk their lives daily to look for the precious metal, their ticket out of poverty.

Small islands appear from time to time as well as houses on stilts and fishermen slowly waiting for their catch from the boat. Once inside the river, you will pass find yourself in a maze of mangroves. If you're lucky, you might just find animals roaming around the area.

    Mount Pinatubo 1991 & 2013

    is an active stratovolcano located on the island of Luzon, near the tripoint of the Philippine provinces of Zambales, Tarlac, and Pampanga. It is located in the Cabusilan Mountains separating the west coast of Luzon from the central plains. Before the volcanic activities of 1991, its eruptive history was unknown to most people. It was heavily eroded, inconspicuous and obscured from view. It was covered with dense forest which supported a population of several thousand indigenous people, the Aetas, who fled to the mountains during the Spanish conquest of the Philippines.
    The volcano's Plinian / Ultra-Plinian eruption on June 15, 1991 produced the second largest terrestrial eruption of the 20th century after the 1912 eruption of Novarupta in the Alaska Peninsula. Complicating the eruption was the arrival of Typhoon Yunya bringing a lethal mix of ash and rain. Successful predictions at the onset of the climactic eruption led to the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from the surrounding areas, saving many lives, but the surrounding areas were severely damaged by pyroclastic flows, ash deposits, and subsequently, by the lahars caused by rainwaters re-mobilizing earlier volcanic deposits destroying thousands of infrastructures and altering the river systems months to years after the eruption.
    The effects of the eruption were felt worldwide. It ejected roughly 10,000,000,000 tonnes (1.1×1010 short tons) or 10 km3 (2.4 cu mi) of magma, and 20,000,000 t (22,000,000 short tons) SO2, bringing vast quantities of minerals and metals to the surface environment. It injected large amounts of aerosol into the stratosphere -- more than any eruption since that of Krakatoa in 1883. Over the following months, the aerosols formed a global layer of sulfuric acid haze. Global temperatures dropped by about 0.5 °C (0.9 °F), and ozone depletion temporarily increased substantially.

    Mayon Volcano, also known as Mount Mayon, is an active stratovolcano in the province of Albay, in the Bicol Region, on the island of Luzon, in the Philippines. The current cone was formed through pyroclastic and lava flows from past eruptions. Mayon is the most active of the active volcanos in the Philippines, having erupted over 49 times in the past 400 years. Like other volcanoes located around the rim of the Pacific Ocean, Mayon is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire.

    Renowned as the "perfect cone" because of its almost symmetrically conical shape, Mayon forms the northern boundary of Legazpi City. Local folklore refers to the volcano as Bulkang Magayon (Filipino: 'Magayon Volcano'), after the legendary heroine Daragang Magayon (Bikol: 'Lady Beautiful')
    The church tower is what remains of the Cagsaua Church, which was buried by the 1814 eruption of Mayon Volcano

And many species may become extinct before we even know they exist.” The Philippines is one of the world’s richest ecosystems. Follow a group of scientists as they discover more than 500 new species in this beautiful island nation. The mission: to find and to document life of all sizes and shapes on Luzon, the largest of the Philippines 7000 islands.

Known for it's hanging coffins, other popular activities include spelunking, rappelling, rock climbing, and trekking to waterfalls. Me, I vote for its quiet, secluded, and relaxing appeal.

Hundreds of hills fill the horizon, symmetrical, and in the dry season, chocolate colored. Unfortunately these limestone hills are not as tasty as the chocolate kisses that inspired their name. The name comes from the deep brown color of the dried grass in summer. Besides their unusual color, the hills are interesting for their regular and symmetric shape. There are approximately 1500 of these remarkable hills in the Bohol province of the Philippines. There are several bizarre legends about the origins of these hills, all involving giants.

    Saving a Fishery and Coral Reef - Apo Island

    In a remote fishing village in the Philippine archipelago, coastal fishers responded to falling fish stocks by working harder to catch them. The combination of dynamite, longer workdays, and more advanced gear caused stocks to fall faster. On the edge of crisis, this small community decided to create a no-take marine sanctuary on 10% of its coral-reef fishing grounds. This initiative sparked a renaissance of not only their fishery, but also their cherished way of life.

    Endangered Species in Fauna

    (and a little Flora) Wild habitats are fast disappearing. Forests are being cut down, rivers and seas polluted, heathlands built on, hedgerows pulled up, ponds filled in - the destruction seems endless. As the habitats decrease, so do their communities of animals and plants. Habitat destruction is one of the main reasons why many species face extinction. Habitats are commonly split up and animals can't get from one part to another, unless wildlife 'corridors' are provided. Other reasons for their demise include the hunting of animals and collection of plants. Now they are facing a new threat, that of climate change.

    Civets have an extraordinary sense of smell allowing them to single pick only the sweetest, juiciest of coffee berries. The Civet is the Ultimate Coffee Farmer! However, poaching, trapping, illegal selling on the black market, and the rapid loss of its forest habitat, have made the civet rare.

    Civet Rehabilitation Center, Pula Asipulo Ifugao

    The ICUN red list quantifies whole populations of species on a general/country level and rarely monitors select areas; certain environments are more? threatened than others. Civets have been poached in large quantities in the Cordilleras of the Philippines which has ensued in a reduction of their numbers. This is why hunters strive to capture them - they fetch large prices within markets as food. Locals in the area will tell you that they are seen less and less regularly as the years go by. There are three main reasons why the civets have to go to another cage: lack of funds for a proper/larger rehabilitation area, the fact? that the conservation area itself borders other unprotected lands where the civets could easily wander into and lastly because they are injured by the snares and need time to heal (this civet was very hurt and had deep cuts to its body). They will be released once a larger area has been established and the amount of poachers can be adequately controlled.

    WWF - Philippines: Marine Conservation

    The Philippines is home to the richest variety of flora and fauna on Earth, ranking 10th in the world for the broad range of its biological biodiversity. The country also sits at the apex of the Coral Triangle, the world's richest center of marine life. With millions of Filipinos depending on our seas for food, livelihood, and eco-tourism, it is only imperative that we make marine conservation a priority! WWF-Philippines, which was founded on the Turtle Isles of Tawi-Tawi 16 years ago, has marine priority conservation areas across the country. (Videos and photos by Jose Ma.

    Thresher Shark Diving

    misterclayminoy wrote on Feb 28, 2009: As one of the memorable dives I ever had, this was taken during my diving escapades in Malapascua Island, Cebu, Philippines. The Thresher shark is estimated to be in 10-12 feet long. I took my deep adventure dive in Malapascua just to experience diving with the thresher sharks. The dive spot is named "Monad Shoal" and according to the dive master, it's an underwater island with the same size as Malapascua. The shallowest depth is 25 meters and the wall is 200-300 meters deep.

    Underwater Etiquette

    Scuba diving and taking underwater images is a great way to learn more and share what our oceans have to offer. Leaving them the same way we found them is vital for continued enjoyment of this precious resource. Through the videography of Steve De Neef the folks at Atmosphere Resorts have created a great resource to teach good diving etiquette to avoid harming both coral and critters, as well as yourself, and make the dive an enjoyable experience for all divers. This video was filmed and edited by Steve De Neef - www.stevedeneef.com and provided to ReefID by Atmosphere Resorts - www.atmosphereresorts.com in the Philippines.

    This video will give you a look at the beauty of the Philippines, the farm workers, and the passion that drives them. This is the golden South Sea pearl. March of 2011 a team of four went on a journey around the world to discover the cultured pearl. The mission of this journey was to explore the pearl producing regions of the world and share the true story of these magnificent gemstones. We would meet and interview the most influential pearl farmers and their workers who maintain the delicate balance between man and nature with one common goal... producing beautiful pearls. "It takes about 5 years to produce a single south sea golden pearl from a very rare type of oyster. These mother and donor oysters were discovered, after much hardship and cultured."

    Endangered Species in Flora

    (and a little Fauna) Wild habitats are fast disappearing. Forests are being cut down, rivers and seas polluted, heathlands built on, hedgerows pulled up, ponds filled in - the destruction seems endless. As the habitats decrease, so do their communities of animals and plants. Habitat destruction is one of the main reasons why many species face extinction. Habitats are commonly split up and animals can't get from one part to another, unless wildlife 'corridors' are provided. Other reasons for their demise include the hunting of animals and collection of plants. Now they are facing a new threat, that of climate change.

Efforts are being undertaken to revive the industry however, with the majority of coffee produced in the mountain areas of Batangas, Bukidnon, Benguet, Cavite, Kalinga, Apayao, Davao, and Claveria.

    Kalsada champions Philippine specialty coffee.

    Our top priority is to support Filipino coffee producers and their dedicated efforts to bring quality coffee to market. By purchasing and roasting locally-grown beans, we seek to build trust and mutual partnership with local producers and their communities.

    More than that, we’re bound by a belief that a seed-to-cup ethos is not just about where your coffee comes from, but also about the spaces in which it’s sipped.

    Preserving the tradition of heirloom rice in the Cordilleras

    by Jodesz Gavilan Posted on 10/04/2014

    Heirloom rice varieties go beyond the usual type of rice we see on our dinner tables. They represent the culture of the Cordilleras and have become the lifeblood of their farming tradition.
    According to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), heirloom rice varieties are more flavorful, aromatic, and have exceptional nutritional value when cooked.
    The heirloom rice varieties, the product of the terraces, are considered to be an important fixture in the lives of farmers in several areas in CAR.
    Staying true to the name, these varieties of rice are passed from generation to generation and are grown by families in their small ancestral lands.

    The pinugo or muyung is an indigenous system of forest management unique to the people of Ifugao, one of the seven major ethno-linguistic groups inhabiting the Philippine Cordillera. Adapted since time immemorial, the pinugo/muyung covers clan-owned woodlots or forests located above the rice terraces. For the Ifugao household, the pinugo/muyong is a source of food, fuel, lumber for housing and woodcarving, medicinal plants, botanical pesticides, irrigation, domestic water, and cash. In addition, it serves as the best preventive measure against soil erosion. A set of customary laws and values govern the system based on the indigenous principle that intrinsically attached the Ifugao people to the land and environment. Produced by Kadioan Inc. with the support of Growing Forest Partnership, IEED, and International Alliance of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples of the Tropical Forests.
