Changed Household Livelihood Strategies in the Cordillera of Luzon
Abstract:This paper identifies and discusses changes in land use and livelihood strategies in two communities on different sides of the Cordillera of Luzon, the Philippines. These include the abandonment of shifting cultivation on many hillsides, the growing of vegetables in pondfields previously used for rice cultivation and the deterioration of pondfield terraces as a result of water and labour shortages. It seeks some explanation of these changes by examining the complex web of activities in which Cordillera households are now involved.
