COMMUNITY BASED SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE (CBSA)

Community-based Sustainable Agriculture (CBSA) is undertaken by the organized members of the community based on a plan shaped from common objectives and founded on participatory baseline research. Meeting the basic needs of adequate and safe food, health and nutrition are prioritized in the development plan. The roles and aspirations of women farmers are studied through a gender assessment module.

COMMUNITY-BASED RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS (CBRES)

The CBRES concept was established by the SIBAT Network back in 1994, and had been sustained up to the present, joined by other NGOs in the country. SIBAT had taken lead in developing its method and content on the ground, and was able to establish community-based systems — wind microhydro, solar and wind technologies – in rural off-grid communities.

MANGARITA ORGANIC FARM

The Mangarita Organic Farm is an initiative of Sibol ng Agham at Teknolohiya (SIBAT), Inc. to effectively carry out its mandate in promoting sustainable agriculture in Philippine rural communities. A farm, either community-based or center-based (individual farmer-cooperatorship as strategy) is meant to provide a hands-on learning venue for farm technologists and local farmers.
