A PIDS study found a link between chronic poverty and weather variability. Households that usually experience weather events such as typhoons are more likely to be poor for an extended period. This probability is also higher for households in the rural areas. To address the adverse effects of weather fluctuations, the study urges local governments to invest in climate-smart agriculture that fits the needs of the community and to take advantage of funding sources such as the People’s Survival Fund to implement climate change adaptation programs.
