DA7 launches 6th AMIA Village in CV

Created on Monday, 19 December 2022

The 6th AMIA village of Central Visayas that the Department of Agriculture-7 (DA7) launched recently, under the Adaptation Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture (AMIA) was in Mabini, Bohol.

The launching of the AMIA Village was held during the culmination of the Climate-Resilient Field School (CrFS) on Rice-Based Farming System.

Felix Tubiano, Officer-in-charge (OIC) of DA7’s Bohol-Agricultural Promotion Center (B-APC) led the launching, together with Mabini Mayor Ongie Grace Lim, Municipal Agriculturist Maria Royana Milana and Brgy. Paraiso Chairperson Florencio Vallecera.

Based on the climate-risk vulnerability assessment (CRVA) of the Visayas State University (VSU) in 2020, Mabini is considered a high risk area or vulnerable to climate change.

The AMIA village, composed of communities from 3 farmer associations (FAs), namely San Isidro Small FA, San Jose FA and Paraiso Pagtinabangay FA, will serve as model to other communities, where climate resilient agriculture technologies are introduced and adopted.

Tubiano, encouraged the villagers to use climate resilient technologies like the use of crops that are drought tolerant, pests and diseases resistance and to practice crop rotation, among others.
