The Philippines is a global player in sugar cane production with Negros province, aka “sugarlandia”, accounting for 80% of national production. As changes in climatic conditions have and will continue to directly or indirectly affect sugarcane production, we should understand better how climate change and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events will impact production targets and future irrigation requirements. This paper demonstrates how a crop model can be used to assess the present and mid-century impacts of ENSO and climate change on sugarcane growth and productivity in Negros Occidental province, Philippines.

(RWH) is an existing technology proven to be effective in reducing pressure on water
resource, yet often overlooked as a viable alternative for supplying water to
households and businesses while reducing stormwater runoff in urban settings. This
paper developed, fabricated and tested various collapsible rubber tank (CRT)
designs and influence water users and decision-makers to strongly support RWH. With
proper handling and maintenance, CRT can be a good alternative for rainwater
storage and can be used in hard-to-reach areas particularly during emergency
situations and relief operations.
