Strengthening local food production

Butuan faces high rates of hunger and food insecurity, in part because of challenges around local food production. In response, the city is launching AgriBOOST, an effort to fine-tune an ineffective agricultural market by giving farmers predictive data to make better decisions about the type and quantity of crops to plant, by fixing some commodity prices to reduce the risk on vegetables and high-demand foods, and by engaging consumers and business organizations for additional support.
