Agricultural Policies in the Philippines

image of Agricultural Policies in the Philippines

This report analyses Philippine agricultural policy. Agriculture provides 30% of total employment in the Philippines and represents 11% of its Gross Domestic Product. The Philippines has had notable recent overall economic success, yet improving agricultural performance remains challenging. Productivity growth lags behind other Southeast Asian countries, and a number of policy distortions hinder progress. With agricultural land resources also under pressure from frequent natural disasters, rising population and urbanisation, the report offers a series of recommendations to improve the sector’s performance and its ability to adapt to climate change.

Agriculture is a key sector for the Philippines, at almost one-third of total employment and one-tenth of GDP. Agricultural land resources are under strain from frequent natural disasters, rising population and urbanisation; climate change is projected to have a significant impact on land use and yields.
