The ISF delegates learned more about the company’s joint goals and shared principles for managing climate-related threats by immersing themselves in the rich culture and diversity of Filipinos mixed with cooperativism.
They also expressed the ISF’s support in fulfilling their goals to improve the lives of farmer-members by boosting programs such as Weather Protect Insurance, which has the potential to significantly contribute to the agriculture sector.
