Bohol: Striving toward Sustainable and Sovereign Food System

  • Larry M. Pamugas


Bohol, once considered among the poorest provinces in the Philippines, is striving to attain sustainable and self-sufficient agricultural food production. This journey has been made possible by efforts among multisectoral groups to join hands and collaborate for Bohol’s progress. These groups mainly include nongovernment organizations, people’s organizations (such as farmers’, fishers’, and women’s organizations), consumer groups and cooperatives, the local church, the academe, and local government offices.
