Gearing up towards Community-based Climate Change Programs |
One of the oldest towns in Quezon, Philippines is Infanta—a first class municipality3 serving as home to a population of more than 60,000. Infanta is located on the eastern coast of the northern island of the Philippines. It directly faces the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre mountain range, which makes it a site vulnerable to hydro-meteorological disasters and sea level rise. For their livelihood, residents of Infanta rely on its agricultural, fisheries, trade, and services sector.
