Analysis and Mapping of Impacts under Climate Change for Adaptation and Food Security (AMICAF)

The “Analysis and Mapping of Impacts under Climate Change for Adaptation and Food Security (AMICAF)” project is being implemented by FAO to fill the information gap between academic climate change impact assessments and stakeholder decision making processes.

Multi-disciplinary assessment for Policy Planning
AMICAF employs a multi-disciplinary assessment approach to address climate change impacts and adaptation planning to improve food security. The approach ensures that there is an evidence base for decision making and policy planning processes. This project supports strategic planning, investments and decisions by national policy makers.

1st phase (2012-2015)

Recipient countries in the first phase were the Philippines and Peru.

2nd phase (2015-2018)

FAO is carrying out the South-South Cooperation approach in two new recipient countries.

Philippines  

Peru

Indonesia


Paraguay

Impacts of climate shocks on caloric intake of Filipinos

This paper examines the nature and extent of the vulnerability of households in the Philippines to the impacts of climate change on food security. The study utilized the 2008 National Nutrition Survey data on food consumption which was associated with level changes in climate shocks from the downscaled climate scenarios provided by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). A total of 4,854 households were included in the study.
