Because of the rapid increase in population, the per capita land share decreased from 2,870 m 2 per person in 1960 to 1,600 m 2 per person in 1990 (NSCB, 1992). The Philippines, like other tropical countries, is considered to be extremely vulnerable to extreme meteorologie al events such as typhoons, storm surges, floods, and droughts.

Also, higher rainfall in the overutilized upstream areas of Java would induce more erosion, increase siltation of dams and harbors, raise river beds, and increase flooding during the rainy season. Currently, intensive upland rice cultivation is promoted outside of Java, where it is intercropped on tree plantations before the establishment ofthe fuH canopy ofthe trees. To address the problem of securing the food supply ofthe COlllltry, several actions are being taken, including producing better near real time analyses of climate to improve preparedness; using early rice varieties; using gogo rancah, that is, planting early at the end of dry season in the uplands and flooding the rice when sufficient rains come; and more efficient water usage such as interrnittent flooding and improved rural irrigation systems.
