Challenges in the Philippines
  • Politics of personalities
  • “It’s the economy, stupid”
  • Cultural fatalism - “Bahala na”
  • Weak political institutions
  • Unbridled population growth

In the Philippines, climate change will have its most profound impact on the poor who live in low-lying and coastal areas that are already prone to flooding and vulnerable to typhoons.


Climate change will compound the problem of poor housing and shelter for close to a fourth of the population (22 million) who live in informal settlements and slums in cities.


Without serious reforms in land use policy, energy policy and improvements in governance, the quality of life of the next generation of Filipinos will be held hostage by the cycle of poverty-disasters-disease.
