The theme for this year’s Sum­mit: “Cli­mate Change Adap­ta­tion and Dis­as­ter Risk Re­duc­tion: Role of Philip­pine Agriculturists,” will en­gage ex­perts and au­thor­i­ties on the is­sue in iden­ti­fy­ing mea­sures on how to face the threats brought about by the neg­a­tive im­pacts of cli­mate change and dis­as­ters, as well as in defin­ing spe­cific con­tri­bu­tions of agri­cul­ture pro­fes­sion­als on such adap­ta­tion and risk re­duc­tion mea­sures.
