The State of the Philippine Climate is an annual report that provides a summary of observations of the country’s climate and climate-related disasters.
The publication is produced in partnership with PAGASA, which has been observing and reporting on weather in the Philippines since the 1950s. Using data from PAGASA, NDRRMC, and other national and international institutions, the report’s primary goal is to disseminate necessary climate information that can aid policy makers, local government units, and other stakeholders in their decision making processes towards science-based climate change adaptation and disaster risk management.
As the first of this series, the maiden issue contains a summary of long-term and latest trends and disaster statistics in the country from 1951 up to 2014. The following volumes detail weather and climate trends in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
