The PCIC in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing the “Scaling-up Risk Transfer Mechanisms for Climate Vulnerable Agriculture-based Communities in Mindanao which is referred to as “WIBI Mindanao Project” in Region X and XI focusing on the development of Weather Index Based Crop Insurance (WIBI) Package in the provinces of Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Camiguin, Davao del Norte, Compostela Valley, Davao Oriental and Davao Del Sur as its project areas. It recognizes that farmers need to be prepared for less-damaging but high probability climate events through planned adaptation as well as low-probability but high-impact (or catastrophic) climate events through combination of disaster risk management and climate resilient farming practices, not only as critical in reducing climate vulnerability in their own right but as prerequisites for effective functioning and sustainability of the Weather Index-Based Insurance (WIBI) as they correspond to the important basis risks that need to be addressed.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the government agency mandated to provide protection against natural calamities and the utilization of scientific knowledge as an effective instrument to ensure the safety, well-being and economic security of all the people will play significant role in the implementation of the WIBI Mindanao Project. Key activities to be undertaken under the project include the provision of relevant data needed for the computation of the weather based index as well as establishing a national preliminary correlation function for banana, sugarcane, coconut and cacao in major crop growing areas.
