Typhoons are a major concern for farmers who are left with damaged rice crops that fetch a very low market price. Lando brought strong winds and heavy rain to 7 regions in Luzon, displacing tens of thousands and damaging local crops and livestock pegged at Php8.6 billion.Locations:Asia-Central Luzon-Philippines-Southeast AsiaDate:24 Oct, 2015Credit:© Vincent Go / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3600px X 2400pxKeywords:Agricultural land-Agriculture-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change impacts-Day-Destruction-Farmers-Fields-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Rice-Rural scenes-Typhoons-VictimsShoot:Typhoon Koppu Impacts in The PhilippinesTyphoon Lando (international name Koppu) was another blow to the Philippines which is already feeling the impacts of El Niño.. Yet, the unusual amount of rainfall, compounded by the slow movement of the typhoon, sent thousands of people to evacuation centers and took a toll on farming communities living in 29 affected provinces. The Department of Agriculture has estimated damages to local crops and livestock at Php8.6 billion. From the country’s ‘Rice Bowl’ to the ‘Salad Bowl’, Greenpeace Philippines documented Typhoon Lando’s impacts to farmlands and communities who do hard labor by tilling the soil despite many hardships and setbacks in order to provide food for the nation.
