Philippines: Politician calls for passage of urban agriculture act
Salon, principal author of one of the bills, stressed the need for Congress to lay down a policy platform to achieve food security considering that the Philippines ranked 79th in the 2017 Global Food Security Index released by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
“The urgency of addressing our nation’s food security should guide us in our actions,” Salon said.

Under the bill, an Office of Urban Agriculture shall be established by the Department of Agriculture.
