philricemanalo[2017] Rice agriculture is among the sectors most vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change.

Yet, it appears that little is written about how to communicate climate change among rice stakeholders, especially the resource-poor farmers. The necessity of communication has at some point been neglected as people would oftentimes just leave it to common sense. Over the years, as we get to know more about this phenomenon, we realize that it is highly complex, and along with it is the difficulty of effectively conveying educational messages across our stakeholders.

This book works at helping fill that gap. It is still a long shot from where it is supposed to be, but it is, nonetheless, a deliberate attempt to provide some guidance on how people involved in communicating climate change in the rice agriculture sector should tackle this important and highly complex, at times intellectual, discourse.

PhilRice YouthandAgri[2016] The importance of youth engagement in agriculture is internationally recognized, due to a lack of interest in agriculture among the youth. The Infomediary Campaign is an initiative in the Philippines to engage young people in agriculture. It is an action research being led by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) in collaboration with the Technical-Vocational Unit of the Bureau of Secondary Schools of the Department of Education and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CGIAR-CCAFS).

The book features the experience in engaging the youth after three years of implementation. The three parts covers (1) introducing the Infomediary Campaign, (2) how-tos, and (3) immediate outcomes and field reflections. The book gives valuable insights on agriculture extension involving young people.
