Agriculture and Development Notes, 2014, vol. 4, No 2, 2 pages

Abstract: The Philippines’ poverty rate is one of the factors that makes the country’s agriculture sector an average performer. Majority of the rural poor rely on agriculture and fishery for subsistence and livelihood. In 2011, 26 percent of the country’s population lived in poverty. This is significantly distant from the impoverished population of Malaysia (4%), Thailand (8%), Vietnam (14%), and Indonesia (14%).
