UNDP aims for a Resilient Philippines

Last October 2, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)held a Blogger Forum last their Makati Head Office. Part of the agenda were discussions on Climate Change Adaptation, Food Security and Nutrition.

UNDP Country Director in the Philippines, Mr. Toshihiro Tanaka, gave a summary of what his organization hopes to achieve in the coming years.

Mr. Praveen of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) shed light on the chronic hunger problems that beset the world. In the Philippines, he mentioned that there is 1 hungry person out of 4. There are a lot of low income Filipino families who want to make healthy meals but are struggling to do so. Hence it is important to disseminate information on what the WFP’s life-saving global food assistance can do to alleviate this problem.

WFP is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. In 2010, WFP aimed at feeding more than 90 million people in 73 countries by uniting organizations and individuals committed to solving world hunger. Aside from providing food to hungry food, WFP also implements nutritional programs, maternal health care education and fosters medical assistance to HIV/AIDS patients. In time of calamities and man-made disasters, WFP also provide quick food distribution and emergency logistical support.

Armed with statistics, Mr. Aristeo A. Portugal of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), explained what their agency is targeting in line with the Food Security thrust of UNDP. Climate change affects our farming activities and this poses a threat to our Food Security. In the Philippines, just like the rest of the world, family farming is encouraged in order to ensure human right to healthy food. The right to quality food is an inalienable right of all citizens. To ensure this, the Philippine government together with private organizations and partners join hands in creating appropriate conditions for the local population to enjoy this right. By driving towards expanded sustainable production, Zero Hunger 2015 will be within reach.

UNDP calls for relentless effort among the locals to eradicate hunger from the Philippines. The participation of Philippine society will be a key element to address hunger and poverty issues that beset the country. UNDP seeks to the involve civil society to commit them to action as part of its food security mobilization process. UNDP builds partnerships that enlist experts in food security, research institutes, private companies and individuals to advocate policy changes needed to achieve goals. This way, all can work together to support initiatives aimed at improving the living standards of poor farming communities in the Philippines.

The third leg of the Bloggers Forum is set on October 16th. Come join in UNDP chat with the ILO Director (Lawrence Jeff Johnson) on youth employment and with the UNAIDS Country Coordinator (Teresita Bagasao) on HIV/AIDS at the ILO Conference Room.
