The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. Resilience in the Philippines is regularly tested through increased temperatures and more frequent droughts, floods, and storms—including Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. USAID​ ​supports the development and implementation of policies to accelerate climate-resilient, low-carbon economic growth. By supporting early warning systems for floods, typhoons and storm surge, communities will be better equipped to deal with extreme events. USAID is also working with dozens of water service providers to build back improved, climate-smart water systems damaged by typhoons. By partnering with private sector companies, USAID is supporting accurate forecasting of crop cycles through linking river, stream, and rainfall data.
