The Climate Experiment: Predicting Rainfall for the Philippines

For over fifty years, the Laguna Lake has been the source of livelihood for Euphemio Bibat, 76, and a fisherman who raised his five children from the lake’s resources. Those long years of dedication to the lake, however, was not enough to inspire any of his offspring to take after his footsteps.

“Mahirap, nakita nila siwasyon ko. Pero ito ay biyaya. Hindi sila sumalang sa gutom,” Mang Euphemio explains why none of his children took after him.

Do you know that there are a number of government programs and services which can help you either start your own food business or help your existing food business grow?

If you’re still undecided as to what food business you’d like to get into, the food technologies of the Department of Science and Technology’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) can help you come up with healthy food products, such as vegetable noodles, crunchy healthy snacks, high fiber fruit juices, fortified food, healthy street food (squash fish balls and squash maja), ethnic food like instant pinakbet or laing, and many other possible food products.

Secretary Fortunato de la Peña of Department of Science and Technology (DOST) said that innovation for inclusive growth has been the central idea of different programs of Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in recent years, particularly in supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the provinces.

“We have many local products and services, which are world-class, and DOST is recognizing this. That is why we are sharing all the resources and knowledge that we have to empower them to be innovative in improving and marketing their respective products,” said Secretary de la Peña during the launching of Benito and Catalino Yap Foundation (BCYF) Innovation Awards held last October 17 at Manila Polo Club in Makati City.
Sec. de la Peña shared that DOST, through its Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP), had helped many SMEs in the countryside to improve the quality of their production and services, particularly in the areas of technology upgrading, packaging assistance, market research, and technology transfer. He said that through this support, DOST was able to create ideal environment for our SMEs to develop and introduce more innovative products and services.
