New Release: The Philippine Climate Almanac


The Philippine Climate Almanac is now available for download.

Produced by the Oscar M. Lopez Center for Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management (OML Center) in partnership with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the Philippine Climate Almanac highlights record-breaking and significant statistics of climate-related variables, extreme events, and disasters across seven decades in the Philippines.

 


The Almanac is the OML Center’s effort to showcase evidence of the country’s changing climate in a way that both scientists and non-scientists could understand. This is in line with the Center’s vision of harnessing the science of Philippine climate to incite real-world decisions and action. The available information in the Almanac includes The Philippine Climate Calendar, a Timeline of Climate Events from 1951-2017, notable Habagat, Amihan, El Niño, and La Niña occurrences, and a list of the most extreme climate events to ever hit the country. 

This is the first print edition of the Almanac. The information in this edition is based on best available data from PAGASA, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), and other sources at the time of publication.
